LEX18 is reporting that UK guard Stacey Poole was involved in a minor car wreck around 2:30 a.m. this morning. Poole, who is taking time to think whether or not he wants to be on a team chasing number 8 was a passenger in a black Escalade. Poole and the driver were both taken to the hospital as a pre-caution, but police describe the injuries as minor.
If Poole is going to stay on the team, he might want to consider taking it to the house a little earlier on the night before game day.
This e-mail was sent to us here at TGR from some Northern Kentucky Big Blue Fans and I thought it was a must share. Hopefully they’ll keep us well informed on future Cats Pat Towles and Austin Sheehan.
UK and Fort Thomas Highlands fans here. Was having some wings and beverages with other fans last night when your website was mentioned.
Wanted to send you a highlight video of Pat Towles and Austin Sheehan, both who have committed to play for your Wildcats next year. I don’t care if you post it on your website, just wanted to provide you with some good plays from probable UK players next season.
I hope you follow these guys this year. They both bleed blue and us fans in Ft. Thomas are doing everything to keep them on the Big Blue Nation path until signing day the 1st Wednesday of February next year!
Both were recently voted as www.tristatefootball.com all tristate athletes (Towles 1st team and Sheehan 2nd team), both listed in the top 20 players in the state by Jody Demling, and both listed in the top 50 best players in this weeks high school coaches poll. Towles was HHS underclassman MVP and Sheehan was HHS Mr. Highlands football this past season. Towles recently attended elite 11 QB camp in CA. Sheehan is the fastest football player in Northern Kentucky and per the recent state championship 100 meter results on the KY track website is one of the fastest of all football players in the entire state. Towles is ranked 40th and Sheehan 180th in their respective positions by Fox Sports/Scout, only to improve this season. Both Towles (scholarship) and Sheehan (preferred walk on) have committed to UK, but as I hear remain heavily recruited by other colleges (that they both blow off) and I expect more so as the high school football season progresses this year. Thanks! A representative of the Highlands and Big Blue Nation.
I stumbled upon the below video this morning and thought it was a must post. University of Oregon football players Darron Thomas and Cliff Harris get pulled over driving 118 MPH while smoking some dope. The officers lets these gentlemen drive off with no citation and even asked to see his PAC 10 Championship ring.
We all know athletes get special treatment but damn!
Keith Taylor of the Winchester Sun has a great read on Clark County’s own and WKYT big man Wayne Martin. Mr. Martin had a chance of a lifetime last night as he was a guest coach for some former Kentucky greats. I’ve had the pleasure to know Mr. Martin for some time and I can honestly say that this was something well deserved.
Former George Rogers Clark standout and Louisville guard Preston Knowles will have a basketball camp July 25-28 at the Winchester YMCA. The camp will feature two sessions, one for players ages 4 through 8th grade from 9 a.m.-noon. The second session is for players in grades 9-12 will be from 6-8:30 p.m.
Once Knowles graduated from GRC and headed west on 75 my hatred for the Cards toned down a notch. Each time Knowles came back to Winchester to watch his former team, he never shied away to sign autographs for every kid that came up to him. I know my nephew who has looked up to Knowles for some time now is ecstatic about attending the camp.
If you’ve ever had the opportunity to be around Preston then you should know that this is a good chance for your kids to get hands on learning from one of the hardest working talents to come through Winchester.
For more information feel free to call the Winchester YMCA at 859-744-9622.
TGR’s own Josh Teater is holding it down for us in Houston. Thursday in the opening round of the Shell Houston Open Teater fired a blazing 65 and has found himself two shots back from leader Jimmy Walker. Teater has himself in a great position to make the cut and cash in big while in Houston.
Not only does Teater have the opportunity to make a few hundred thousand; he is lucky enough that the PGA tour planned this lovely event the same weekend as the Final Four. As we all know Teater is a huge fan of the Cats, being born and raised in Lexington, KY. During the “Free Enes” campaign, Teater tweeted out a photo of his golf bag.
My budding John Lee whose company gracefully sent him to San Antonio to complete a construction assignment has the privilege to meet up with TGR’s Robbie Baldwin. The two of them have a weekend that will hopefully be the greatest in their lifetime. See, Lee and Baldwin planned to go to the Final Four a few months back; never did they imagine they would see Houston painted blue by the BBN.
This morning when Teater tee’s off at 8:40 est, Baldwin and Lee will be right there next to the rope as they watch Teater shoot him another low number. TGR will keep you updated on Josh as his round progress via Facebook and Twitter.
To be honest I’m very jealous of the weekend that my fellow friends have lined out. All signals are pointing to an exceptional weekend and TGR will have everything you need right here, so stay tuned.
