     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It will be a clash of philosophies on Friday when Bullitt Central heads across Highway-44 to battle Bullitt East in the 27th renewal of The War.

    On one had, there is a 4-2 Bullitt Central team that will put the ball in the air most of the time, a move that lengthens games. Bullitt East on the other hand wants to keep it on the ground and shorten the game.

    Sure, Bullitt Central head coach Tye Lawson would like to run the ball more, and better, but his heart, and best player Cameron Dukes, are better suited for the air game.
