  • PREP FOOTBALL: Fort Knox hopes...

    The Fort Knox Eagles got a taste of just how quickly things can change Friday night in the annual Army Bowl at Fort Campbell.

    In a span of 3 ½ minutes at Fryar Stadium, the Eagles went from trailing 7-6 to down big as Fort Campbell senior Aaron Hills scored three touchdowns. He caught a touchdown pass, rushed for a score and returned an interception for another touchdown to turn what was a close game into a blowout.

    The Falcons (2-2) reeled off 41 unanswered points en route to a 68-26 win, their ninth straight over Fort Knox (1-3).

    SEATTLE — A year ago, there couldn’t have been two more unlikely Major Leaguers anywhere than Nathan Adcock and Stevie Delabar.

    You would’ve had a better chance at hitching a ride on the space shuttle than to have the two of them make it to the big leagues.

    And for both to have come out of Hardin County, well … even the two participants are surprised in the extreme.
