Lawrence Co. Head Coach Travis Feltner


“... We won a wild one against Letcher Co. Central after falling behind early. We were fortunate to pull out the victory.”

“... Long day and weekend for us. Great win against a good Boyd Co. team. Cabell Midland is a solid club, but I wasn’t disappointed in them. Hated to take one like that but that first loss was coming sooner or later. I’m positive now that the 15-0 start would be best in school history.”
