The Madison Central Indians are primed for a big run in football through Class 6A. Kenny Turner has the Indians believing they can compete with anyone in the big class. He certainly seems to have the players to back it up for 2008. Star Running Back Keyshawn Simpson is back after sitting out last year out with a leg injury, and Isaiah Cavanaugh returns as well. Central has many more weapons as this football season unfolds. Zach Coldiron is the new Quarterback taking over for Chaz Hope who graduated. Coldiron does a good job running the offense behind a huge offensive line. The O-line is anchored by all-state lineman Larry Warford at 6-6 and 300 pounds. Warford has already committed to play for Kentucky next year.

The Central defense has been tough to score on this year. They recorded back to back shutouts in there first two games. Coach Turner said the injuries to his team in 2007 have made them a much better team in 2008. All of those key injuries gave the younger players an opportunity to get additional game experience. The Indians are undefeated and currently ranked #3 in the state, with only Louisville St. Xavier and Trinity ranked above them in the polls.
Madison Central is in the same district with powerhouses Scott County and surprise team Clark County. A couple of weeks ago all three of these teams were ranked in the top ten in class 6A football. Central does have a tough schedule with games left against Scott County, and a Halloween fright night date with Ft. Thomas Highlands at David Cecil Memorial stadium in Ft.Thomas. That scary match-up game could be the one standing in the way of a perfect season.
Overall the Madison Central Indians are a very talented and athletic group of high school football players. As we approach the last full month of regular season football, keep an eye on the boys from Richmond. They could be a strong contender for a trip to Papa Johns Cardinal stadium In December.
