McCracken County High School football is living up to the expectations of the newly consolidated school, crushing almost all of their opponents in lopsided blowouts.
And after the first round playoff pummeling of Boone County last week, the Mustangs will face, easily one of the toughest opponents yet, the 11-1 Central Hardin County High School.
Head coach Jack Haskins, who isn't bashful about eyeing the state playoff, is happy with the difficulty of the Mustang's schedule this year.
"We played Mayfield so I don't know if they're the toughest ones or not. Henderson's awful good too, now. So we'll just play them one at a time and we'll find out how good they are in the other part of the state," Haskins said. "That's why you play the playoffs."
McCracken County's two losses come from Mayfield and Paducah Tilghman High School, by a point each. The Mustangs will take on Central Hardin County High School on Friday at 7AM in McCracken County.
