Jaguars set to host Letcher

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

But don’t expect to see players such as Michael Nelson and Gabe Blair to get much of the touches on offense. Head coach Chris Larkey said today’s scrimmage will allow him to see what some other players can do.

“I know what some kids can do,” he said. “This is an opportunity to see what some of our back-up players can do. We need to see if our players are in game shape and if they get tired.

“We want to see them go 30 minutes and see how tired they are,” Larkey added. “If they are tired, then that will give us something to work on heading into our first game. The biggest thing is we’re going to see some live-action football. We’ll gain some game experience and that’s always a plus.”

Larkey’s good friend, Mike Halcomb, coaches the Cougars and he expects Halcomb’s squad to throw a lot of things at his players.

“Mike is a family friend and he’ll do a great job at Letcher Central,” Larkey said. “He’ll do some of the same things he did at Breathitt and our guys will have to be ready for that (today).

“We need to fine tune some things and this will allow us to do that,” he added. “We’re just excited to be able to go out there and play.”

Larkey said, just like any other high school coach, does want to stay away from the injury bug with only one week before the regular season.

“We’ve got a lot of guys that do not need to get hurt,” he said. “As a player, you can’t go in being scared about getting hurt because if it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen. You can’t go into a scrimmage with the thought about getting hurt.

“We will limit what some of our players do and go from there,” Larkey added. “We just want to go out there, run some of our schemes, get tuned up and see where it takes us for the following week.”
