FOOTBALL: Valley at Fairdale

I’ve written this post over and over. Ten times, in all actuality. It’s hard to believe what happened last night in a high school football game and, since I’m planning to press charges, I have to make sure I don’t say the wrong thing. As usual, Valley played a fair game against the players from Fairdale and the referees. Nothing unusual there. In Jefferson County, the fix is in for the Vikings. We’re used to it.

FOOTBALL: Valley at Anderson County

The Valley Vikings had to go on the road last night. Like on…the…road. The Vikings traveled an hour down I-64 to visit the Anderson County Bearcats on the Bearcats homecoming night. As usual, Valley’s kids played their guts out and stayed with Anderson County before ultimately falling 20-0. Continue reading “FOOTBALL: Valley at Anderson County”

Let’s Get Fired Up

A couple of weeks ago, my brother David asked me to do some photos of his daughter Kira and her basketball team on their final junior varsity game of the year. You can see those photos here. This past Saturday, he asked if I would come out and do some photos of his youngest daughter Alanna and her cheer squad. As you can see from the cover photo, I said yes.

FOOTBALL: Valley at Spencer County

The Valley Vikings ended their season last night with a loss at Spencer County, 28-7. It was a cold night with an ESPN style atmosphere with fairly loud music, a large marching band and an animated announcer. You could tell it was a playoff atmosphere and Spencer County was quite excited to host the first round of the district playoff game. Continue reading “FOOTBALL: Valley at Spencer County”

FOOTBALL: Valley at Waggener

The Valley High School Vikings had another hard fought battle last night, this time against Waggener. It was even the WHAS11 Game of the Week. Too bad they didn’t broadcast the game because it was a 16-on-11 mauling where the 11 football players and 5 officials in Waggener’s favor dropped the hammer on the Vikings 34-13 in a non-conference game so luckily, the loss doesn’t affect their playoff standing.

FOOTBALL: John Hardin at Valley. Bonus: Holy Cross at Valley JV

It’s been an interesting week for Valley High School Football. On Monday, the JV team finally got some action with Holy Cross visiting. The reason I say finally is that every year, there’s a junior varsity schedule but every year, other teams don’t have enough players to field a junior squad. Continue reading “FOOTBALL: John Hardin at Valley. Bonus: Holy Cross at Valley JV”

FOOTBALL: Shawnee at Valley

No school today meant that football at Valley High School was a Thursday night affair and that’s why the Shawnee Golden Eagles spent time at Viking Harbor on the night before the traditional Friday Night Lights. Continue reading “FOOTBALL: Shawnee at Valley”
