Individual Accomplishments of Note

Russellville HS alum Tacorian “Coco” Darden made national news when he was awarded a full football Scholarship by WKU this past week. The offer, made during practice and by surprise, even caught the attention of the NCAA Twitter page, who tweeted the event out to their 1.9 MILLION followers.

Russellville Middle School Softball Coach Ryan Davenport was officially name the Head High School Softball Coach this past week. Coach Davenport has been instrumental in the development and building up of the rising Panther program.

Jr. Linebacker Edward Barber was named the MVP of the Scottie Bowl, in which he led a valiant comeback effort against Glasgow that saw the Panthers come back from a 21-0 deficit and nearly win the game.
