Young Bobcats shutout Jenkins in John C. Combs Memorial Middle School Bowl.
HAZARD – August 17, 2019 – Brendon D. Miller
Breathitt Middle School opened their 2019 season on Saturday intent on continuing their winning ways from their first winning season in many years in 2018, finishing 7-2. Many names off of last year’s team are now Freshman at BHS. Names like Hoskins, Bryant, Miller, Ogans, Vanover, Robertson, Hudson, Noble, Rowlett, and Dousay have moved on, and a fresh crop of talent, who go by names like Combs, Gibson, Hall, Barker, Miller, Caudill, Bowling, Turner, and Neace, have moved up from the NorthFork Lumberjacks to fill that void and make their mark on the program. Add them to the holdover 8th graders like Fugate, Turner, Stacy, Spencer, Noble, and Bowling, and newcomers Terry, Roberts and Carpenter, and this year promises to be exciting.
Coming off successful scrimmages at Knott County and against Perry County, the Bobcats headed to Perry County to open the season in the John C. “Punkin” Combs Memorial Middle School Bowl. Jenkins was the opponent and the Bobcats came away with a 32-0 win.
