    Two weeks into the season, the LaRue County Hawks are looking for a No. 3 option on offense. However, No. 45 is turning out to be a No. 1 type of playmaker on the other side of the ball.

    The Hawks’ dynamic senior backfield duo of Drew Newberry and Cody Thompson shined again at home Friday night, but it was 5-foot-8, 145-pound senior linebacker Taylor Albert who sparked LaRue County to a 27-24 win over the Shelby County Rockets with a fumble recovery that set up the winning touchdown and two sacks – including one to end the game.

  • FOOTBALL FRIDAY UPDATE: Central...

    The Mark Perry era at Central Hardin got off to a shaky start, but the Bruins quickly recovered to give Perry a win in his debut.
