Three area stars to play in Border Bowl
Three local football players are in Williamsburg this week to take part in the Border Bowl, an all-star game set for Saturday between teams from Kentucky and Tennessee.
Boyle County linemen Paul Megilligan and Tyler Priest and Danville lineman Tevin Raines are among 50 players selected to the Kentucky all-stars for the fourth edition of the game, which will be played at noon at the University of the Cumberlands’ James H. Taylor II Stadium. Danville coach Sam Harp is also an assistant coach for the Kentucky stars, who are led by former Bell County coach Dudley Hilton.
The game features but is not limited to players from eastern Kentucky and east Tennessee, with most of the rosters consisting of players from along and east of the Interstate 75 corridor. Tennessee’s team has won two of the first three games.
Saturday’s game can be seen on television in the Lexington and Hazard markets. WYMT-TV (Ch. 57) in Hazard will air the game live, and CWKYT (Ch. 27.2) in Lexington will have a delayed broadcast at 8 p.m. For more information on the game, visit www.ky-tn-borderbowl.com.
