Fugate goes down as top star in inaugural Forcht Bank Bowl

Baugh scores hole-in-one

Breathitt County running back Channing Fugate went 90 yards the first time he touched the pigskin in the Aug. 22 Forcht Bank Bowl at Campbellsville High School.

The official numbers of the 6-2, 225-pounder who has committed to the University of Tennessee showed 14 rushes for 204 yards and five touchdowns - runs of 35, 49 and 10 yards plus his aforementioned kick-off return and a 43-yard punt return in the second half.

By the way, for those who asked, rivals lists Fugate's time as 4.55 in the 40-yard dash.

Week two football thoughts: Now that the "preliminary" games are out of the way, all talk can be directed to the "Battle of the Birds."

The crowds have been outstanding the last several years and the 2009 version of the Campbellsville at Taylor County High School football clash should be no different since each team stands a legitimate chance for a victory and bragging rights for a full calendar year.

The big questions heading into game week are the playing statuses of Cardinal quarterback Lance Turpin (collarbone) and Eagle runner Thomas Downs (wrist).

Ace for Baugh

Kelly Baugh scored his first hole-in-one on Wednesday, Aug. 26 at Campbellsville Country Club. He aced the 150-yard, par-3 No. 16 using a 6-iron with a Warrior Super Soft ball. Baugh was playing with Tim Bailey, Greg Chick and Mike Thomas.
