Football Season is Here!

Football season is upon us and the HCHS Thorobreds are working hard for the upcoming season.  Approximately 60 young men are coming to summer workouts at 6PM every night except Saturdays and Sundays to lift weights, go through drills, learn offensive plays and defensive schemes.

The Thorobreds scrimmaged Nicholas Co. and Paris in the past couple of weeks in 7 on 7 games.  7 on 7 are strictly passing games where teams work to get pass routes and timing down for real game situations.  The Breds are going to rely on a ground attack as well this year and we look forward to putting on the pads to practice that part of our game.

The Breds have worked hard during the off season and an attitude of commitment, hard work, and dedication is in the atmosphere.

The Breds go to Pendleton Co. tonight to play Pendleton Co., Bracken Co., and Holy Cross in their final 7 on 7 games this season.  Practice will resume on Monday, 7/29 at 6PM.  Go Breds!!!

Football Shifts into Summer Gear

The HCHS Football Team shifts into summer gear this week as graduation has been completed and Memorial Day has come and past.   A very special thanks to all of our veterans for the ultimate sacrifice.

We had a Booster Meeting on May 14 in the HCHS cafeteria with very good attendance.  The agenda with information on the NASCAR fundraiser is shown below.  This is a major event and the success of the participation will result in new equipment and uniforms for the players.  We need 40 people to help.  Anyone interested in helping on any or every night, please call Bryn Free at 859-298-1648, Kim Mayer at 859-707-5721 or Jim Carr at 859-388-0388.

TRAINING – there will be two types of training Online Tortal
Training and Onsite Training.

Online Tortal Training. Group leaders will be receiving a link to our online
Tortal training website. You will need to log in / register for the classes. It
will be each group leaders responsibility to forward the link to those team
members who will be working the event so they too can take the training. I will
send out instructions on how to log in / register. The training will take
anywhere from 1-2hrs. There will be multiple modules to take that make up the
“usher� course. This will be high-level overview. Every employee (f/t, p/t and
event) will have to take the courses respective to their job duties. Again, I
will send out an instructional email outlining the online process. Online
training is not paid.

b. Onsite training: Groups
are encouraged to come one of our onsite training sessions. These sessions go
over specifics to your role and any changes/updates for the event weekend.
Groups will be paid for the number of people that attend the onsite session.
Only those working the event need to come. We will have a sign in sheet at both
training and on each event day so we can cross reference who attended training
and who did not. I don’t mean to sound strict on this, but unfortunately in the
past we have had some groups try to take advantage and send people who would
not be working to increase their hours. Only those planning to work should
attend training as it is a chance to see the venue, ask questions and learn
about what to expect on event days. We totally understand that you may have
prior commitments, but please plan to have some if not all members of your
group attend one of the following onsite training dates. If you are not able to
attend either date, please let me know and we will work around it.

Onsite Training Dates: Saturday,
June 8, 12pm-2pm in Bluegrass Hall in the infield or Monday, June 10, 7pm-9pm in Bluegrass Hall in the infield


a. Water/snacks will be provided on each event day. You are welcome to bring your own cooler with drinks and food. Coolers cannot exceed 14�x14�x14�.

Spring Practice Wrapping Up Today

The Football Thorobreds are wrapping up their 10th – 2 hour practice today as spring practice comes to an end.  The players will compete against each other this afternoon on “Football Friday” playing their version of Indian Football.  Dr. Rick Arnold will treat the players and coaches with some of his world famous grilled ribeye steaks and Stephanie Anderson (wife of OL coach Kevin) will provide some of her fantastic desserts.  Many thanks to all who will provide for the boys.

The players had a very good practice on Thursday, displaying a lot of energy and heart as the practice concluded with some good crisp, explosive hitting in a 1 on 1 drill.

Two (2) important, upcoming events are the trash pickup on this Sunday, 5/5/13 at 1PM at the Oddville School parking lot and the Booster meeting on Tuesday, 5/14/13 at 6PM at the High School cafeteria.  Other important dates are listed in the previous posts.

Football Spring Practice Underway

Approximately 20 – 25 football players, weightlifters, tracksters, and baseball players have been practicing football fundamentals and techniques this past week during Spring Football Practice from 5 to 7 PM.

The team is continuing to work hard in the weight room and then going to practice.  Drills and learning the fundamentals and techniques of playing football have been the main focus.  KHSAA rules state that football teams have three weeks to get in 10 – 2 hour practices.  We will be completing Week 1 on Friday, 4/19 with Practice #3.  The willingness to be successful and the will to win attitude is high among the players and coaching staff. 

Important dates for Players, Parents, Guardians, Fans, Boosters;

Tuesday, May 14, 6 to 8 PM  – Parent/Booster Meeting in HCHS Cafeteria

Tuesday, June 18, 5 to 7 PM - Free Physicals at Harrison Memorial Hospital

Weightlifting, Spring Practice, Fundraisers

Weightlifting, Spring Practice, and Fundraisers are the three main items the High School Football team are focusing on currently.

Weightlifting:  Approximately 20 – 25 players are lifting weights and working hard with plyometric training four days a week after school.  Coaches McCann and Tolle are instructing and pushing the players to get stronger and quicker.  The Harrison County team competed at Western Hills High School recently with four other teams; Collins, Tates Creek, Franklin County, and Western Hills in a strongman competition.  The Thorobreds tied for first, but settled for second due to tiebreaker rules.  More coverage is in the Democrat.  Congratulations to the Thorobred Football/Weightlifting Team!

Spring Practice:  Spring football practice starts on Monday, April 15 from 5PM to 7PM.  KHSAA rules state that  high schools have a window of three connsecutive weeks to have 10 – 2 hour practices during a predesignated date selection.  Practices will revolve around the weather and other spring sports contests.  We hope to coordinate with other spring sports contests and practices so that as many players can participate in spring football practice.  Harrison County High School has many student athletes that play multiple sports which is strongly encouraged from the football perspective.  Spring practice is open to everyone at the practice field which is beside Shirley Park -Fillies Softball Field.

Fundraisers:  Our team hopes to purchase much needed new helmets, shoulder pads, and uniforms for the upcoming season.  We also need operating funds for away game travel, home game referees, meals for the players, equipment, and other items.  We must get this done through fundraisers and donations.  We will be having a Booster Meeting on Tuesday, May 14 at 6 PM in the high school cafeteria to discuss fundraisers.  All parents, guardians, fans, and any interested persons who want to help the team are encouraged to attend.

Thank you for visiting the HCHS Football Blog and stay tuned for upcoming information.
