     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Once again this season The Pioneer News will run the results from the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday edition during the season.

        TAYLORSVILLE – The continued to impress, but Bullitt East’s defensive woes continued on Friday as the red and gold dropped a 55-46 decision to Spencer County.

  • Rockets again end Eagles’ early...

        SHELBYVILLE -- In week three of the playoffs, North Bullitt could be facing a tough, physical, well-coached football team.
        So, when head coach Adam Billings’ Eagles went head-to-head against the Shelby County Rockets on Friday, he wasn’t as concerned about the score as he was how his players competed.
        Despite a 48-23 setback in Shelbyville, Billings was upbeat.

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the second time in as many seasons, Bullitt Central moved to 4-0 on Friday when the maroon and gray put the defensive clamps on Jeffersontown, winning 24-0.
        For the game, the Jefferson County Chargers had just three first downs and except for a long pass play that ended up in the endzone being called back for a holding penalty, Jeffersontown didn’t come close to scoring.
        Bullitt Central was up 7-0 at halftime and then slowly pulled away in the second half.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After all three local football teams played at home last Friday, all three will be on the road this week as the games are dwindling down to the start of district play on Sept. 23.

    For Bullitt Central, this is the ‘shadow’ portion of the Cougars’ schedule. Somehow, in scheduling three years ago for the past two seasons, Bullitt Central managed to schedule three non-district foes a week after one of their Bullitt County rivals played the same team.

     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.

  • Stallings, Bowles retire; youth...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Two of the most successful coaches in Bullitt East history, girls’ basketball coach Chris Stallings and baseball coach Jeff Bowles have already or will soon be retiring.

    Let that sink in for a moment.

    OK, Bullitt East fans can take a deep breath and Charger foes can drop the raised eyebrow. Neither Stallings nor Bowles is going to stop coaching.

    What both have done is retire from their teaching positions. Both will remain as the head coach of their respective programs.
