JACKSON, Ky (WYMT) - The Breathitt Bounty Bobcats parted ways with long-time Head Coach Mike Holcomb at the end of last season.
Now assistant coach and former Breathitt County Quarterback Kyle Moore assumes the head coaching duties.
"For me it's a dream come true, it's something I've always wanted to do. I played under Coach Holcomb, I coached under Coach Holcomb, we have a really good relationship. I just hope we can continue building on what he started." said Coach Moore.
The bobcats are coming off a 12-1 season and Coach Moore says coming into this season their biggest concern is inexperience.
"We lost a lot of starters, a lot of guys that were 3-4 year starters. The misconception is that we are a young team, but we've got 17 seniors and they are very talented," said Coach Moore.
Senior Wide Receiver and Cornerback Wes Noble agreed with coach, "Well we got experience from the games last year, and we're going to hopefully get better and use of that stuff for this year and try to get better everyday."
Senior Linebacker and Fullback John Keith Collins talked goals and expectations for the year, "Foremost we want to put a 4th picture in the hallway for the state. We want to honor a boy who played with us to who would have been a senior, who passed away in summer practice last year. He had more heart than anybody I've ever played with. We want to give pride to Breathitt County Football as it keeps rolling on."
The Bobcats face off with the Jackson County Generals in week one.
