    “I was in shock,” Day said about the game-winning play. “That was a perfect ball thanks to Adam Hazelett. You couldn’t ask for a better ball from the quarterback.”

  • Rebel football putting the fun...

    Friday nights in September are supposed to be fun.
    The weather is getting cooler and high school football is in full swing. For the past few years in Owen County, Friday nights have been, well, so-so, but not this year.
    Something about this season seems different. Fun.
    When I go to home games, I don’t sit in the stands. I usually stand on the Owen County sidelines on the far side from the bleachers. From across the field this week I noticed something. The bleachers were full — not only that — the fans were into the game.
