2016 Crittenden County Review – Week 7

  • Crittenden had its first 100-yard rusher last week in the seventh game of the year.  The only other time since 1994 that a team did not have a 100-yard rusher until at least the seventh game was 2006.  That team did not have a rusher until the seventh game as well.
  • Last week, Devon Nesbitt ran for 118 yards and Hunter Boone passed for 142 yards.  The last time the Rockets had DIFFERENT players rush for at least 100 yards and another pass for at least 100 yards was in week 4 of the 2012 season when Grant Gardner rushed for 105 yards and Travis Gilbert passed for 109 against Union County. 
  • The Rockets scored in double figures in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd quarters versus Fulton City last week.  The last time the Rockets scored in double figures in the first three quarters of the game was in 2009 versus Webster County.
  • Crittenden scored three rushing touchdowns an three passing touchdowns against Fulton City.  In 2009 versus Fulton County was the last time the Rockets had at least three rushing and three passing TDs in a single game.  In that game the Rockets had five rushing TDs and three passing TDs.
  • The Rocket defense held Fulton City to (-5) passing yards last week.  That is the lowest passing yardage total for an opponent in the last 23 seasons which is through when single game stats are available.

2016 District 1A, District 1 Round Up – Week 8

  • Russellville (7-0) – Russellville rolled up Fulton County, 60-0, last week.  Look for a similar result this week as the Panthers take on Fulton City at home.
  • Fulton City (1-6) – Fulton City is try to avoid surrendering at least 48 points for the fifth consecutive game this week when taking on Russellville.
  • Fulton County (0-6) – Fulton County has their second by week of the season this week.  Fulton only has nine games on their schedule this season.  The week off is needed after being outscored 6-120 that past two weeks by Russellville and Webster County.

2016 Playoff Outlook – 1A, District 2


  • Bethlehem (3-3) – Holy Cross (Covington) took down the Eagles 26-0 last week. Bethlehem should be able to rebound with a win against Caverna assuring them of a first round home playoff game.  Bethlehem’s attention will most likely be on next week’s matchup with Campbellsville.
  • Campbellsville (2-5) – As expected, Campbellsville had trouble with Danville last week dropping them to a deceptive 2-5 record.  Campbellsville sits idle this week.  The district crown looks to be decided next week when the Eagles travel to Bethlehem.
  • Caverna (0-6) – The Colonels were easily beaten by the Somerset Briar Jumpers, 8-46.  Caverna has been able to score some this season as they have put up at least 22 points in three games this year.  It will most likely take that type of output and more to be competitive with Bethlehem this week.
  • Fort Knox (0-6) – As predicted, LaRue County had a running clock against Fort Knox last week in the 55-6 win.  Fort Knox takes on McCreary Central (5-2) which has scored at least 36 points in all of its games but one this season.  McCreary could reach a point total north of 60 for the second time this season against Fort Knox.  Fort Knox has scored only 34 points this entire season.
