2014 36 Blitz: Lexington Catholic Knights

Lexington Catholic is expected to win on the football field. 

The Knights, under new leadership of former UK QB Mark Perry, still have the same lofty goals as they did under Bill Letton.  State or bust.

As for the pace and tempo at practice, it’s tuned up a bit to the collegiate ranks where Perry is using his experience from suiting up at the SEC level to push his high school guys to a new level.

The road to Bowling Green will run through Boyle County as it always does in 2014.  But the season will actually start where Lex Cath hopes it will end, at WKU against Allen County-Scottsville in Week 0.

Check out the video for this year’s preview of the Knights.
