36 Blitz: Lincoln County Patriots

Crutchfield looks to have back-to-back winning seasons


STANFORD, Ky (WTVQ) – The last time the Lincoln County Patriots had a winning record Larry French, one of the state’s all-time winningest coaches, was at the helm.
That was in 2007.
Eleven-straight losing seasons later, a local product by the name of Spencer Crutchfield took over the Patriots and coached them to a seven-win season.
ABC 36’s Austin Miller and the 36 Blitz hit the road to Stanford to see if Lincoln County can build off of last season.
