  • Leap of faith pays off

    CRESTWOOD – Two years ago Zach Price took a leap of faith and the North Oldham High School football team caught him with open arms.

    Price, a senior fullback, in just his second year of football rushed for 96 tough yards on 21 carries to earn offensive MVP honors and help the Mustangs edge Moore 20-19 Saturday in the Oldham County Kickoff Classic.

    CRESTWOOD – The defense held for the North Oldham Mustangs as they stopped a Moore scoring drive as the clock ran out Saturday to preserve a 20-19 win in the Oldham County Kickoff Classic.

    The Mustangs were led by senior fullback Nick Price with 96 yards on 21 carries. Moore's Na-Vale Sanders led all rushers with 141 yards and scored a touchdown.
