  • East has tall task on the road

     MOUNT WASHINGTON  – Bullitt East head coach Mark Sander is not going to hide anything from his players.

    He’s not going to sugarcoat the task at hand this Friday night.

    But he’s not going into the first round Class 5A Russell Athletic/KHSAA Commonwealth Gridiron Bowl thinking that his Chargers will lose.

    The task at hand is facing the top ranked team in the Litkenhous ratings. That is number one for all six classes.

    “Anything can happen,” said Sander.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON --  Just play the game and don’t worry about the scoreboard.

    That’s the motto of Bullitt East head football coach Mark Sander.

    No matter that you are playing in a driving rain.

    And no matter that you playing a defending state championship calibre opponent.

    And no matter that you have 13 of your teammates unable to play on Friday night due to injuries.

    Just go play the game.
