  • Cougars stumble in opener

    In a matchup of high school football teams making an offseason switch to a spread offense, it was rather obvious Friday night that Seymour was ahead of Campbell County.

    The Eagles took advantage of their running game and consistently better field position to beat the Cougars 42-6 in the 2011 season-opener at Seymour.

    “We had communication problems all night on the offense side of the ball. We had several plays in which we did not give ourselves the opportunity to succeed due to that,” said first year Campbell County coach Justin Price. 

  • Scouting Report — Cumberland...

    It’s back to the drawing board this week for the Campbell County Cougars, who are busily preparing for their home opener tomorrow night against the Cumberland County Jets.

    The Cougars had trouble finding the end zone last week during a 42-6 loss at Seymour. In defense of Campbell County, new Head Football Coach Justin Price has been on the job for less than three months and the Cougars have totally revamped their offensive and defensive schemes. Campbell County’s coaching staff views each game as a learning experience and a chance to improve.
