H.S. FOOTBALL | Kickoff Kentucky Featuring Kentucky Country Day

08/10/2017 05:54 PM

The Kentucky Country Day Bearcats open up their regular season on Friday, August 18 at Atherton.

The Bearcats are coming off a successful 2016 campaign, making it to the third round of the KHSAA Class A Playoffs. They finished the season 10-3 overall.

This year, the team returns plenty of players from last year’s team, including quarterback Jackson Diaz.

Head coach Matt Jones is looking forward to seeing what this team can do, although he hopes to see some improvement from the KCD defense.

“If we’re going to get to that next level, we’re going to have to play consistently dominant defense,” said Jones.
