#1 Bell County versus #4 Knox Central Friday night was one of the hardest hitting games I have seen in my time in Kentucky. Knox set the tone early by taking the early 7-0 lead over Bell County in the first quarter, but one of the more emotional and heart wrenching moments took place before the game even started as Panther head coach Wayne Mills spoke to his team.

#1 Bell County versus #4 Knox Central Friday night was one of the hardest hitting games I have seen in my time in Kentucky. Knox set the tone early by taking the early 7-0 lead over Bell County in the first quarter, but one of the more emotional and heart wrenching moments took place before the game even started as Panther head coach Wayne Mills spoke to his team.

His speech was a reminder that football is not just a game, its not just for fun, but there is a lot more to it. It teaches you about life, it teaches you about teamwork, it teaches you about yourself.

This was evident before the game while Coach Mills talked to the team, and it was evident during the game, as you can tell that even in defeat, the Knox Central Panthers left everything they had on the field.

Knox Central lost the game to Bell County by the score of 21-7, but here is a moment only caught by a WYMT camera that completely made my night while shooting this game.

This is what it is all about right here.
