HARRODSBURG - Louisville Holy Cross may have changed its head coach since last season, but Harrodsburg assistant coach Keith Brown said said it still looks like the same team as the Pioneers prepare to meet the Cougars Friday night in Louisville in the Class A playoffs.
Ray Riedinger resigned after the KHSAA placed the Cougars on probation for illegal recruiting and was replaced by Dave Weston. The Cougars (9-1) lost only to Class AAA Doss 13-12 during the season, and Brown said they are running the same offense as the ran last year when they lost to eventual state champion Danville in the regional title game.
Seniors Eric Titus and Marell Booker share time at tailback and have rushed for 1,093 and 705 yards, respectively.
"They may have changed their offense some, but we will still see double tight ends with a wishbone set," Brown said. "They run the option every time they get a chance. Their quarterback (Aaron Troutman) does an outstanding job reading defenses on the option. He hasn't had to throw the ball that much because they have had so much success running the ball. They can throw the ball if they need to.
