  • It’s not perfect, but Eagles grab third win
  • Billings ready to make the difficult call at QB

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – One of the ‘smart’ answers that football coaches get when it comes to tough decisions is ‘that’s why you get paid the big bucks.’

    For North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings, he could be getting paid twice as much and it still wouldn’t be enough for the coach and the really tough decision that he has to make this week when it comes to his starting quarterback. The only good part of the process is that there appears to be no wrong answer.
