    CRESTWOOD – Arien Beasley has made a name for himself with his big-play ability.

    After all, the speedy senior wingback went into Friday night averaging 133.7 rushing yards and 2.7 rushing touchdowns on just 8.3 carries in North Oldham’s first three games.

    Then against South Oldham Friday he broke some more big plays, none bigger than a 48-yard fourth-quarter sprint to the end zone that gave North a 21-7 lead on its way to a 28-14 win in Dragon Stadium.

  • Football: Oldham wins first home...

    BUCKNER – There was a weird feeling hanging around Buckner Friday night.

    For the first time in two years, the Oldham County football team was leaving Bell Field with a victory, having just defeated North Bullitt, 55-54, thanks to a touchdown with 10 seconds left to play.

    To hear the players themselves describe it, the elation of a come-from-behind, well-fought victory was foreign to the county's biggest school.

    “We kind of forgot what it felt like to win,” senior wide receiver Justin Viar said.

    Not anymore.

  • The Matchup: Arien Beasley

    Arien Beasley was a middle schooler when he realized basketball might not be the best sport for his style.

    “I got to my seventh and eighth grade year and I started running people over all the time,” Beasley said. “…My family and coaches just realized that maybe I should start playing football.”

    Football has worked out just fine.

  • The Matchup: Connor John

    The spring of 2013 was a time Connor John’s life changed on and off the football field.

    His family moved from Southington, Conn., where he’d lived since fourth grade, to Crestwood for his father’s job.

    Suddenly John was a sophomore at South Oldham, a place where he didn’t know anyone.

    He adapted to his new surroundings by playing football.
