  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Flores is ready for task ahead (08/14)

    Ray Flores knows he has a big task ahead of him.

    Just after preseason practice started, Flores was tabbed as head coach of the Fort Knox boys’ soccer team – and given the objective of getting the program turned in the right direction.

    Flores is the team’s fourth coach in the last four seasons – and the team’s seventh since 2001. He replaces Michaela Jacobs, who was 6-12-2 last year. Fort Knox won just 19 games the past three seasons under former coaches Alex Molina, Jose Huerta and Jacobs.

    Before his sixth season as head boys’ soccer coach at North Hardin Christian got underway, Josh Hardin wasn’t even sure if he would have enough players to field a team.

    Because of the low turnout, Hardin chose to cancel summer practice and the team’s annual camp at Campbellsville University. Hardin thought about having his squad compete as a club team instead of at the varsity level in the Kentucky Christian Athletic Association.

    Then school started, and the turnout increased – and Hardin’s outlook changed.

    Leadership, goal-scoring, defense and unity are all there this year.

    We are having a beautiful day this Tuesday as I write this. I hope it stays like this throughout the week and weekend. By the time you read this, Cecilia Days will have come and gone. I was under such stress last week due to the unforeseen loss of our grandson-in-law, I was unable to get together in my mind all the things I should have mentioned in my column.
