Harlan County faces a challenging schedule in 2013

HARLAN COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) -- One win away from going to the class 5-A State Championship game, the Harlan County Black Bears are coming off an 11-3 season that ended with a loss to Cooper in the semifinals.

However, heading into the 2013 season, Harlan, once again, is showing they are not afraid to schedule any team. They will play Knox Central -- a team that beat them last season -- and Belfry, as well as travel to Tennessee before district play even starts. This will be a test to prepare them to make it to the carpet in Bowling Green.

"We got a tough district to play in," quarterback Scotty Bailey said. "Just the teams we play; we play teams out of Lexington and Tennessee and stuff, and having them, going on the road games like that, I think it builds a lot of character for us."

"Playing on the road and getting used to that, where we held it last year, I think we play on the road this year to make it past the Cooper game like last year. I think scheduling those good teams away will be a good challenge for us."
