Even though I missed Friday night I viewed eleven games and saw some excellent teams and outstanding players. The stars lived up to their reputations and there were several players that I had not had the opportunity to see before that was very impressive. A special thanks to Scott County coach Steve Helton and his staff for another outstanding event.
