Yes our football program has gone downhill. but if you want to fuss about somethin, fuss about a team like Highlands being in our district. What they are is a high school team with college benefits. They can recruit players and I dont think it is fair for a public school to have to compete against them for state, district or any other title. It is no different for the schools like LCA or Trinity. When you can recruit it makes all the difference in the world (unless you are UK in the SEC).

Exactly, when will HCHS ever get on chartered buses with VIP on the side and have the drivers wear suits? They have got to play against competition, Highlands is a bit out of our league until we can recruit, our teachers get paid what they get paid, and our players have all the luxeries of practice fields and equipment that those schools get! It is nice to have high expectations, however goals should be attainable and realistic otherwise it is child abuse. Putting our players on the field without the chance of equality of size or skill and allowing the students to be disgraced by the comments being made by other teams as well as classmates is verbal, mental, and physical abuse. Where is the safe place in this school sponsered sport??? The higher ups should be ensuring a safe environment for our kids, this schedule is making them feel bad about themselves and be a joke in the community!

I know there are a multitude of problems but I also know that the schedule we have played the last couple of years has been almost impossible and it sets our children up for failure. If you want a cornfield buy a farm, if your such a Bourbon fan it is 15 miles up the road, and what in the world the Army/Navy has to do with it I will never know, but I do know that when you talk about your or our a** getting kicked it is spelled OUR, so there is my clue!!
you are wrong. Hchs is a 4A school and they have played the same type of teams minus Scott county for the last 20 years. The class is based on the numbers in the school. They may have not played them in the same order. In order to win a championship hc has always had to beat the same teams for the last 20 years. Until the people that matter inside the system care about extra curricular activities and what they mean for the community and the kids hc will not be successful. The kids are there and it takes the right coaches and administration to win.

that was when there where 3 classes. Now there's 6. Hc has had to beat the same teams for the past 20 years minus scoot county to win championships The kids are there and until the people that matter start caring about the success of hc then it won't change.

Hc is a 4a school and that is based off the numbers in the school. They have had to beat the same schools for the past 20 years to when a championship minus scoot county. The kids are in the school and until the people that mater want to care about the success of football, they won't win. Extra curricular activities are a big part of what builds the confidence and success of young people. It is proven that student athletes score higher on testing then a normal student, so why does hc not care????
we will see

The problem with football in HC starts at the Pee Wee level. You have guys like Turley and Cochran running the league, coaching and officiating. Talk about a conflict of interest! They grab all of the best kids and keep on their team, but only play a select few and the other kids who are good athletes get tired of the crap and get a bad taste for football and never play again. On the other hand, the teams competing against these clowns have no chance of winning and the kids on these teams get tired of trying to compete and losing and end up quitting. I know first hand...my kid played for these jokers! He now hates football...just kills me! These guys think they are the greatest coaches and pat each other on the ass after each game and talk about how they should coach UK or the Bengals. Cheating and talent win out...not your coaching. I know these jokers want to coach middle school/high school just so they can play their sorry kids. The bad thing is they do this at all sports and try to bully everyone out of the way and get away with it. If you stand up to them then you just get black listed and your kid suffers!

Half the football team has quit because Coach Carr doesnt know how to coach.I have seen him and the other coaches scream at these boys like they are in a prison camp.You take these kids spirtis than what are you left with.I will tell you what you left with,kids who played football since they were little and than when their senior year comes up,they quit because carr doesnt know how to treat them with them respect.You want a good football player,than stop screaming ,all he has done is degraded the players.Its the same as bullying,but nonthing will be done to him.

HC football team hasn't done anything in few years.. is not the player. We know we have tallent and we have it for a while. Players like N. Slusher and now others like tibbalt... we need to give this team the right coaching. We know that coacher have their favorite who only play because of the last name they have. JOE KORONA? Howmany times did he had to show he wasn't good enough. We know Martin was way better... coaches tell the player to try their best and earn a spot in the field l. But no that's not what's going on

peewee clown is what you are .....don't hide behind a false name.....admit that your child is the one who is a quitter because of lack of talent. the jokers you speak of are not your children's coach this year and one of them quit...why? I know who you are and lets see if your sons play at the next level......you say their team is loaded but their kids are sorry.....but their loaded so which is it dumbass loaded or sorry kids.....what a yellow striped prick.....

Blah, Blah, Blah..sounds like a bad case of jealousy to me. if you can't beat them...then they must be cheating!! Wow. And to think God allowed you to have children. Those guys are good coaches. My child has played for them the past couple of years and has thoroughly enjoyed it. Those guys coach. they teach. Yeah they coach hard and can be loud at times. But it appears that the kids love'em, because they play hard for them everytime they take the field. i just don't see the favoritism you spew about. the team they had last year was all 5th graders for crying out loud. Your entitled to your opinion....but I believe you're dead wrong

Football in Harrison County has declined, I agree. I see several comments all pointing to the coaching. Has anyone thought it could partially be lack of talent as well. Be a realist and sometimes as a parent have to understand your child's abilities. I agree some is the coaching...high school staff has stayed mostly the same except for head coaches, maybe the problems are underlying in that staff of the old...get them gone and rebuild....there should be coaches in the schools to get kids out to play....pewee clowns spoke of that level being at fault, wrong. numbers have always been good there through middle school. high school freshman is where it begins to drop. why I don't know, think I would start there. Then you have a clown writing in the paper down grading football in our county....what a joke. Carr is not responsible for the 8th grade team winning. He hasn't coached them. They are winning due to talent and the new staff being involved 100%. Winning is a tradition of pride which has to have talent that is well coached. The school system has to want to succeed or it will never happen. Just my thoughts....

Yeah, to put the ills of the high school football program on the middle school and pee wee guys is absurd. You have real issues surrounding the HS program, and the only way to address those is with money, money and more money! You've got to hire teachers/coaches to be in the building. Build some nice locker room facilities with a competent weight room..so these kids can get on a regimented weight program. I don't think the entire mess can be laid directly on the coaching staff. Must have support in the building and central office. Until you get that...a mountain of losses with continue to build.

The reasoning given to the community for spending money on a new football stadium was because the old one was condemned and unsafe for the players and the fans. So how is it safe for our peewee and middle school players? Either it isn't safe at all and noonday should on it and it should be torn down or the communitywas lied to and it was wasted money that could have been better spent elsewhere.

Kern's and the voluntary coaches are the reason for 8 grade doing so well.Mcmillian is a joke he really doesn't get involved.Kern's should be head coach I heard he didn't have all the crudentials he needed to be head coach.So they had to hire Mcmillian cause he did that's the only reason!

It may not be due to carr coaching them but I do believe that the 8th grade team did win the same amount of games and also made it to the playoffs last year under Coach Thomas and Coach Reed. And I do know this for a fact because my son was a 6th grader last year and a part of that 7th grade.

Coach Carr screaming doesn't make him a bad coach. Hell Coach Whitaker has always screamed at his players and continues to do so. You see where screaming gets the baseball team. It gets them championships!!!! The only thing I can say is that if your kids can't handle it then they need not play that sport.
