Quarterbacks Quarterbacks Quarterbacks

It isn't just the NFL that's seeing some shake up with some of its best signal callers.

It isn't just the NFL that's seeing some shake up with some of its best signal callers. The same thing can be said for the mountains. Let me break it down for you.

Lets start with the good.

Charlie Banks:

Is off to a good start. Going into Friday, he is 18 of 24 with 359 yards and 3 touchdowns. But more impressive are his numbers on the ground. 115 yards on the ground on 19 attempts and 5 scores. Charlie Banks is clearly the leader of this offense and he will try to continue his success this Friday when Letcher Central takes on Perry Central. The success of this team will parallel the success of Banks.

Ricky Bowling:

If you have been watching WYMT at all over the past week, you know that Bowling is creeping up on the all time touchdown record in the state of Kentucky set by former UK star and Leslie County football player Tim Couch. Bowling sits 28 touchdowns away from breaking the record and barring an injury should pass "the Deuce".

Zach Lewis:

Is another QB getting some serious love by the media as he approaches the total career yards mark set by, once again, Tim Couch. Lewis is just over 1,000 yards away from breaking the record and could shatter it well before the season even finishes.

Now for something to watch for.

Chris Muse:

Simply broke on to the scene last year at Pulaski County as he threw for over 1,700 yards in the air adding 16 TDs. But more amazing was his 1,973 yards rushing on the ground, tacking on 19 more scores. All this while being only being a sophomore. So coming into this season, he was one to watch, but right before the half of the Pulaski / Rock game, already battling a hurting ankle, Muse while planting to make a tackle, injured his knee. All indications after the game, was that he would be out for at least two weeks if not longer. But after speaking with him this week. There is more than a 50% percent chance that you will see him taking snaps versus Russell County this Friday. After starting the season 0-2, Pulaski County could use a huge lift, and Muse could be just the guy to provide one.

And now for the bad.

Tyler Olinger:

Busted on to the scene last year as well. It helps when you have the last name of Olinger as his brother, Durrell was a stud for the Bulldogs in his day as well. Tyler has always been described as  a fullback who could throw the ball, and showed that skill last year as he ran for 1,100 yards. But he also showed that he could be reliable in the air as he threw for 3,401 yards as well. Olinger has been blessed with great talent around him, but it will be that talent that will most likely be without Olinger this week. Olinger is nursing an injured ankle and is not expected to play versus Jenkins on Friday. Olinger has already thrown for 549 yards and run for over 100 yards in two game, so the production from him will be severely missed. The Bulldogs are currently 1-1 after an opening day loss to Green County and then followed up with a win over Pike County Central last week.
