This year marks my eighth as sports editor of The Kentucky Standard. The first time I saw many of the kids’ names you see in these pages, they may not have even been playing tackle yet.
Scary thought, really. Another big season on the horizon.
But, when looked at from a big-picture stance, it, like high school sports in general, is all a big cycle.
This year, around each of the local football programs there’s an air of optimism, even more so than usual. Sometimes the cycle is on an uptick, and this year seems like one of them.
