Default Somerset Briar Jumpers 2018
2017 - 7-5

Key losses:
Offense - Ty Tevis (5 RB), Josh Cornett (13 WR), Mason Reese (10 QB).
Defense - Collin Hartmann (11 DE), Ty Tevis.

Key Returning Players
Offense - Alex Miller (21 RB), Kade Grundy (7 WR) and the entire offensive line and all of their reserves.
Defense - Peyton Hatcher (34 MLB), Jase Bruner (1 ILB), Landon Fields (75 NG)

Jumpers return 8 offensively and 8 defensively. Somerset gave up 15 ppg while playing one of the toughest schedules in 2a. Obvious areas of improvement - offense needs to find a rhythm early and often.

Thoughts? Their district loses quite a bit and they return a LOT of talent.

I've said this for weeks. It's Somersets turn to shine in that district. They got a really good group returning and more coming thru the system.

I think they win the district and make some noise come November.

I have always thought Lucas does a great job on defense.

I think you will see a better team this year than last year, the players have hit the weight room hard and have gotten stronger and faster. I hope to see something different in the offense this year and put some points up.

Somerset will win their District. This team has a good chance making a long, long run in the paly-offs.

Winning their district would surely mean they could make a long run as that would mean beating both Danville and LCA. #boldstatementcotton

Look for Bunnies to rebound after a couple tough years. Always a lot expected from the fans in this program. I think they come through this year. Could win the East.

They should be the favorite. Then Danville I would imagine. Sounds like LCA has lost a lot

Are the Jumpers numbers way down? I heard that they only have 4-5 freshmen and less than 10 sophomores. And that they will only dress around 35 total.

I've heard the same. I think they'll end up with more freshman in the coming weeks. They had around 30 on the 8th grade team last year. As for the sophomores, 10ish is low for a class but not abnormally so for Somerset. There's been a few classes of 5 or 6 kids over the last 20 years or so. I think they end up with over 40, which is normal for a Somerset team. Not making excuses for the kids flaking on summer practice, but there will be more come out.

Just curious, but does that happen a lot? Kids skip summer practice then join the team? Doesnít seem fair to the kids who stuck it out all summer. Itís not my program so I canít say one way or another. But if I were a player Iíd be a little upset. I kept waiting for our numbers to drop all summer. But we finished it with around 90 kids going into the start of school and the scrimmage this week. Good luck

Hard to get kids to commit to anything until the water park closes.

I'm glad to see Somerset back on an upward trend. I have always respected the program and the fan base. I have watched many games between Breathitt and Somerset and I have always witnessed good sportsmanship between both schools. I think Somerset is the district frontrunner this year. Danville will be good, but not great. I think Danville lost too much firepower to graduation, to be able to complete for another championship. LCA, from my understanding has lost three or four starters to other Lexington area schools, most notably to Frederick Douglas. With that being said, I don't see anybody else in the region posing any problems for Somerset. Leslie will be improved, but I don't see them playing within two touchdowns of Somerset. So realistically, they have a very good shot at a regional championship and a good shot at playing at Kroger Field in December. Good luck on this upcoming season.

I certainly hope it doesn't become a trend. I can't say how much it has happened over the last several years, but I'm with you, it is unacceptable. I would chalk it up to just being a different era than I am used to, but as you said, other schools aren't having the same issues. I can't say that's for sure what's happening though, maybe 35 kids is all we will dress this year. But I will say that a couple kids whose names you would expect to hear a lot this year haven't made it out yet. I don't like it, but it is what it is.

Couple kids playing travel baseball, freshman buy in isnít always great in the summer.

I was told that the biggest impact baseball player (Grundy) will be back next week, that kid could be a big time ball player.

The middle school is going to field close to 40 kids total. Not a huge 6th grade class but the 7th and 8th grade classes are decent numbers. Most of those kids are going to play high school ball.

The freshman class just didn't pan out to put players on the field. There is one in particular that could've been an immediate impact type and gave it up. Hurts small school programs when the best players aren't playing.

Itís at corbin. I wanna say itís around 6 maybe. Iíll make sure and double check for ya.

Sorry for calling it a scrimmage guys. I donít want to mislead anyone. We didnít have ďthoseĒ when I played. But basically Somerset is coming to corbin to play some sort of football thatís not 7v7 correct?

Didn't make it to the game but I was told Somerset scored 15 times and McCreary scored twice. No word on how either team looked.
