Monday Morning Quarterback for August 26 2013

Welcome to this week’s edition of the Steve Black Show’s Monday Morning Quarterback.

What a first weekend for high school football in the Tri-County area (Knox , Laurel, Whitley).  A special shout out to Steve Black Show frequent guest Les Dixon, Sports Editor of the Corbin Times Tribune, as source of information for this blog.  You can follow his twitter account at www.twittwer.com/@Theendzonett where you will get great updates from around the local area on game nights!!

Here are the results from around the area this past weekend.

From the Pioneer Bowl at Knox Central

Powell Co. 48  Lynn Camp 16

Tough loss for Coach Phil Russell in his 2nd season as head coach.  Lynn Camp’s Tyler Reynolds scored 2 touchdowns in the loss.  Lynn Camp was hampered with player suspensions and key injuries, but Powell Co. looked really good in the win.

Knox Central 51  Louisville Atherton 7

scott russell

No hangover from the post Jeffrey Canady era from Coach Scott Russell’s Panthers as Freshman QB Casey Diamond made his debut for KC, going 4 or 9 passing with 3 touchdowns.  Senior RB Jonathan Gist filled the hole left by Canady very well with 190 yards rushing and 2 scores.  Junior Matthew Barger had 68 receiving yards with 2 scores of his own.   As for Casey Diamond, I have heard positive things from several people about his potential.  I know it is just one game, but this young man has a chance to grow and do some special things for the Panthers in the years to come.  Check out some of Casey’s highlights from Friday’s game courtesy of www.hudi.com.

Williamsburg 43  Halls (TN) 14

jerry herron williamsburg

No hangover from the Yellow Jackets tough 7-0 loss to Hazard in last years Regional Final as the offensive attack of QB Dalton Sizemore and WR’s Corey Shelton and Skylar Griffith picked up where they left off last year.  Sizemore had a monster night with 415 yards passing with 6 touchdowns (3 pass, 3 rush).  WR’s Shelton and Griffith combined for 358 of those passing yards and 3 scores.  Coach Jerry Herron must be happy with his team’s offensive performance.

North Laurel 48  Claiborne Co. (TN) 20

lakrey north laurel

Poised to build on last years first winning season since 2004, Coach Chris Larkey’s Jags were lead by Gabe Nelson with 128 rushing yards and 2 scores.  This will set the stage for our show’s game of the week this weekend as North and Williamsburg are set to clash at South Laurel this Saturday night.  If you are in the area, this is a MUST SEE contest!!!

Other Tri-County scores…

Corbin 14  Pulaski Southwestern 0 in the Ray Corell Bowl in Somerset.

There you have it.  Another great start to the football season.  If you did not get the chance, check out The Steve Black Show’s Tri-County Football Preview show from August 22nd.  We had Coaches Jerry Herron (W’Burg), Chris Larkey (North) and Phil Russell (Lynn Camp) on the show, as well as Sports Editors Les Dixon (Corbin Times Tribune) and Tim Bransetter (Barbourville Mountain Advocate).  We had a few glitches, but we hope to fix those issues before our show on Thursday, August 29th at 7pm.  We will revisit the first weekend of local football, preview this weekend’s games and preview the upcoming local college football season, as we will focus on the Battle for the Brass Lantern with Head Coaches John Bland of the University of the Cumberlands and Tommy Reid of Union College.  There will be other guests representing Cumberlands and Union and we discuss this annual clash between college rivals.
