Kroger KSR Hometown Classic

Harrison County vs. Fleming County Preview

The outlook of Harrison County’s season is bleak; only winning two games in a regular season is brutal enough. They’ll have another tall task ahead of them in Fleming County this Friday in the Kroger KSR Hometown Classic.

One positive, however: sophomore quarterback Kaydon Custard. His 1,835 all-purpose yards are good for nearly 80 percent (2,329) of his team’s total offense. His dual-threat ability has kept opposing defenses honest as he’s thrown for 1,147 yards and run for 688 more, equaling 14 total scores.

For the Panthers, their quarterback is a do-it-all type of player as well—but not in the way you’d think. Fleming County quarterback Zeke Conn doubles as a linebacker, ranking 12th in 3A with 90 total tackles. His 1,453 passing yards are also ranked fifth in the division as well.

With three straight losses prior to their bye last week, the Thorobreds haven’t won a game at all in October.

The exact opposite, Fleming County boasts a five-game win streak and hasn’t lost since September. Outscoring their opponents 149-31 during that stretch, the Panthers are playing their best football of the season right now.

Can Harrison County pull off the upset and take the inaugural Kroger KSR Hometown Classic crown for themselves? Find out when the game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. EST on Friday night.
