    Curtis Turley feels like it’s his time to serve the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame.

    He’s coached high school basketball for 32 years, guided 12 teams and developed hall of fames at two schools. He’s already worked as the president and assistant director of the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches. It’s time to increase his role and do more.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: Pleasure...

    LOUISVILLE — Special teams sprung Central Hardin to a victory in the first round of the Class 6-A playoffs last week.

    They led to the Bruins’ downfall in the second round Friday night.

    Pleasure Ridge Park scored two touchdowns off special teams and the Panthers piled up 429 total yards en route to a 48-18 victory over Central Hardin.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE:...

    Jake Wilson’s Hail Mary wasn’t answered.

    With 5 seconds remaining against Louisville Butler in the second round of the Class 6-A playoffs, the Meade County senior quarterback rolled to his left before lofting a pass to junior Zeb Wilson in the end zone.

    But it bounced off Zeb Wilson’s hands and hit the turf, giving the Bears a 24-21 win in a wild, back-and-forth tilt at Hamilton Field.

    Butler took its three-point lead with 2:42 remaining when junior Aaron Miles hit a 22-yard field goal.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: John...

    The John Hardin Bulldogs are back in a familiar position – playing for the Class 5-A, Region 2 championship.

    The top-seeded Bulldogs downed the third-seeded Grayson County Cougars, 33-3 on Friday at Bulldog Stadium in the second round of the playoffs to advance to the state quarterfinals for the sixth consecutive season and the seventh time in the last eight years.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: Bell...

    LOGMOUNTAIN — For 2½ quarters Friday night, the LaRue County Hawks had an eastern Kentucky power on the ropes.

    Then Jonathon Polly got his groove back.

    The Bell County senior running back ran for three of his four touchdowns in the final 19 minutes and finished with a game-high 210 yards on 23 carries to help the Bobcats rally past the Hawks, 35-14 in the second round of the Class 3-A state playoffs at Dudley Hilton Stadium.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Defense sparks...

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so Friday night’s slugfest looked picture perfect to John Hardin’s defense.

    Behind their stingy defense, the top-seeded Bulldogs downed the third-seeded Grayson County Cougars, 33-3 at Bulldog Stadium in the second round of the Class 5-A playoffs to advance to the state quarterfinals for the sixth consecutive season and the seventh time in the last eight years.

  • BASKETBALL: Turley will get Hall...

    Curtis Turley, who won more than 600 games and led four basketball teams to the state Sweet 16, will be introduced today as the state coordinator of the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame.

    A news conference to introduce Turley has been scheduled for 11 a.m. at Pritchard Community Center, where the Hall of Fame has its temporary office. Elizabethtown has been selected as the site of the Hall of Fame, which will open in 2018 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of organized high school basketball competition in the state.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Unbeaten PRP...

    Josh Krupinski hopes Central Hardin can come up with the area’s biggest postseason surprise.

    It’s been 15 years since the Bruins have reached the third round of the playoffs.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Meade gets...

    One of the oldest clichés in coaching – no matter what sport or level of play – says it’s hard to beat the same opponent twice.

    That’s exactly what the Meade County Green Wave face tonight, when they host the Louisville Butler Bears at 7:30 at Hamilton Field in the second round of the Class 6-A playoffs.

    And the Green Wave, who beat Butler in the regular-season finale two weeks ago, are expecting nothing less than another physical game.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Playing at Bell...

    The LaRue County Hawks have a daunting task ahead of them tonight.

    Not only will they be on the road for the longest trip they’ve taken for a game this season, but they’ll be playing in what first-year coach Josh Jaggers described as one of the loudest stadiums in the state.

    But the Hawks (6-5) insist they aren’t intimidated by facing Bell County (9-2) at 7:30 tonight in the second round of the Class 3-A playoffs.
