Bullitt County was not only represented on the field, but also off of it and at halftime last Saturday during the Commonwealth Gridiron Football Tournament.


Before the Class 4-A Championship game, North Bullitt senior Dalton Cissell read the Sportsmanship Creed of the KHSAA. After that, Cissell flipped the coin before the Bullitt East-Bell County state final.

At halftime of the Class 4-A contest, Cissell was presented with the Kentucky Footbal Coaches Association Player of the Year award in Class 4-A, Region 4, an honor he shared with Marion County senior Eric Miles.

At the same time, Bullitt East head coach Doug Preston was named the Class 4-A, Region 4 Coach of the Year. Because he was coaching at the time, the award was accepted by his wife and son, Jessica and Collin.

At halftime of the Class 6-A final, Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor was named the Region 4 Coach of the Year.
