Last year, Northern Kentucky had 3 football teams make it to the State Finals (Beechwood, NewCath & Highlands). This year, the same 3 teams are looking to repeat their visit, and Simon Kenton is looking to join them. On Friday, December 5, these teams will play in the Kentucky State Semi-Finals for Class 1A, 2A, 5A and 6A.
Coach Jim Black has turned the Whitley County Colonels football program completely around. The past two years, Whitley County has a combined record of 4-17, but this year is a different story with a turn-around record of 12-1. This is the first ever semi-final game for the Colonels.
Simon Kenton (9-4) at Male (9-4)
Can the Simon Kenton Pioneers keep the magic alive? Simon Kenton has won their past 6 games with 2 of those playoff wins against teams they had lost to earlier in the year.
