  • ZOMBIE TRIPLE FEATURE

     HEBRON ESTATES - Sometimes high school students seem like zombies when they get up in the morning for school.

    The North Bullitt Eagles returned to the Cal Ripken Experience in South Carolina and returned home with a 5-0 record.

    You can’t pick your opponent and head coach Brian Wise was more worried about his team than who sat in the other dugout.

        While Parsons would have gone to a larger school and just been a student, he decided that if he was going to continue playing football it would be at Union. That was the only school that he sent a tape too and the only school he visited to talk football.
