  • Leasor stepping down after second BC stint

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – This time, Bullitt Central football coach Danny Leasor got to go out on his terms.

    Following eight seasons on his second stint as the head coach of the Cougars, Leasor is stepping down after one of the best seasons in the program’s history. Bullitt Central finished this past season with a 9-3 record, tying the mark of the 1990 team, which he also coached, as the most productive for the program since 1979.

    The news that Leasor is retiring is not new news. Leasor had announced before this season began that it would be his last.

  • It will be hard to separate Leasor from Cougar football

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For a coach who would only commit to being on the job for four years when he was hired in 2007, Bullitt Central football coach Danny Leasor surprised even himself when he stayed eight years at the helm of the Cougar program.

  • Injuries are a very frustrating part of the game

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The three Bullitt County high school football coaches don’t agree on much, and right now they aren’t agreeing on much at all, but the one common thing they can agree on is that injuries affect your season more than any other aspect.

         Worse, no matter what you do, you can’t plan for them and you can’t prevent them.

         Injuries just happen. Sometimes they happen in practice and other times in games. Injuries can happen before the season starts or in the final game.

  • Without key weapons, Cougars' season ends

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt Central Cougars’ dream season came to a sudden end on Friday night with a bad five-minute span to end the first half that the maroon and gray could not overcome in a 14-0 loss to Iroquois.

         The setback closed Bullitt Central’s season at 9-3 and was the final game as head coach for veteran Danny Leasor who before the campaign had announced that this would be his last season at the helm.

  • Cougars, Raiders ready to rock Shepherdsville Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The last time Bullitt Central and Iroquois met on the football field, the Cougars rolled to a 63-24 victory during the 2010 season. The year before, the maroon and gray rolled to a 61-0 win.

    When the two teams collide on Friday in the second round of the Class 5-A, Region 2 play-offs, the only sure thing is that the score will not be as lopsided.

  • Poppell rallies for sixth-place at State

     LEXINGTON – In a race in which half of the top eight finishers were freshmen or younger, a little experience paid off on Saturday for Bullitt East junior Sierra Poppell at the Class AAA Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    One of the top runners in the state this season, Poppell got off to a slow start in the 5,000-meter race and was closer to 20th than first after the first mile. But didn’t panic or push. The junior stayed the course and let the race come to her.

  • BC overcomes sluggish start, beats J-town

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Win and advance!

         That is the mantra of any team taking part in a single elimination bracket. There is no balloting and no points for style.

         Just win.

         That is what the Bullitt Central Cougars did on Friday, overcoming a poor first half and then playing just well enough over the final 24 minutes to beat visiting Jeffersontown 28-7 in the first-round of the Class 5-A play-offs.

  • Grayson brings North Bullitt's season to an end

     LEITCHFIELD – Teams looking to pull the big upset can’t make mistakes, especially early mistakes.

         Just ask the North Bullitt Eagles.

         After struggling through the regular season with just one win, the Eagles felt like they had the opportunity at redemption with the start of the Class 5-A play-offs and a trip to Grayson County on Friday.

  • Bulldogs continue to be post-season sensations

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- In the past two seasons, Bullitt East has re-established itself as a football title contender.

  • BE-John Hardin match-up highlights first-round play

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Not all post-season high school football games are created equal.

    One of the best in the state on the opening weekend will be this Friday in Mount Washington when Bullitt East plays host to John Hardin in the first-round of the Class 5-A play-offs. This is a rematch of last year’s Region Two Championship game that John Hardin won 28-14.

    That was the sixth straight Region Two title for the Bulldogs.
