  • The Carr Era begins as football...

    BAfter one week of practice the Harrison County Thorobreds football players are fully aware that a new sheriff is in town.  
    “When we played football when I was in school we were not the most talented group,” admitted Coach Jim Carr. “But we were in the best shape and won games in the fourth quarter. We will be in better shape than our opponent in 2012.”  
    Carr played for Fred Mariani, whose teams had modest success from 1977-79 without great talent and learned what being in good condition meant in determining wins and losses.

  • Be true to your school and a...

    The Beach Boys in the 60s sang a song about cruising around town with their letter sweaters on and the school decal on the car showing everyone who could see that they were “number one in the state.”  
    They, of course, were referencing their school being better than the others in town since they grew up in metropolitan Los Angeles where there are multiple schools.  
    We in Harrison County have only one school to be true to and that is good old Harrison County High School.  

  • Middle School Football Camp...

    More than 65 middle school boys turned out Monday for the kick off to the season, the Harrison County Middle School Football Camp.  
    The coaching staff, six of whom are new, greeted the players to begin workouts for the three-day camp.  
    The heat index was a problem on Monday as it was at 105 degrees, which prevents workouts of any kind.  
    After a few minutes, the index dropped below 105 and the workouts began in earnest.
    The new coaching staff begins with the head coach of the HCMS program, Terry McMillan.

  • Larry Kendall Basketball Camp
  • Breds soccer welcomes back 14...

    Coach Nick Hill has a veteran, talented group back for the 2012 Harrison County Thorobreds Soccer squad including eight seniors.  
    When one adds the six juniors, many  of whom played a lot of minutes last year, he has a formidable team to begin the season.  
    Last year’s 9-9-2 record was somewhat disappointing though the Breds always face a tough schedule and had some injury issues along the way.  

  • Enough already

    What has been going on at Penn State University has been some of the most vile and sick incidents in recent memory and yet the Paterno family refuses to let the findings stand and move on with what is left of their life.  
    The report issued by former FBI Director Louis Freeh was 267 pages of damnation of the Penn State football program as well as the president of the university and its athletic director.  

  • Ashbrook, Toomey win Jungle...

    The Jungle was filled with excitement this weekend and it wasn’t the normal lions and tigers or the Bengals making the noise.  
    Former HCHS baseball players J.D. Ashbrook and J.P. Toomey won the 2012 Jungle two-man tournament with a total score of 195 for the 36-hole event.  
    The tournament, which is named for the late Jim Letcher, featured 80 players in a triple format contest.
