Kash Daniel Put the Team on His Back; Is Too Good For Words

Pikeville and Paintsville just played the best football I’ve seen so far this year.  Leading the pack was Kash Daniel.

The 1A rivalry was mountain football at its finest, bringing physicality to every snap.  It started fast, tied quickly in the first quarter at 7, remaining the same until late in the second half.

Down 15-7 with four minutes to play, Paintsville needed Kash to carry them to victory.  The offensive line was stuffed multiple times, causing a turnover on downs.  The game looked over…until Pikevillle fumbled it back to Paintsville on the following play.

Kash put on his cape.

A few plays later, he sailed a beautiful ball more than 30 yards down the left sideline for a touchdown with 1:50 to play.  A bootleg from Kash on the 2-point conversion tied it up.  Pikeville only marginally moved the ball, before coughing it back up to Paintsville with :30 seconds to play.  They took their shots to the end zone, coming close multiple times, but didn’t get as close as Kash did running the ball.  4th down with :08 to play, Kash tucked it and ran down the near sideline, diving toward the pylon to come up JUST short, stepping out of bounds a few yards short.

There was still time for him to be a hero.

Daric Pugh bullied his way into the end zone to give Pikeville a TD lead in overtime.  Not going for two cost them, because NOBODY could stop Kash.

They ran the same play three times in a row, spreading the field and running a QB power.  He knocked off an opponent’s helmet on the first play.  He attempted to go “up and over”, leaping into the air on the second play.  He fell three yards short, but landed on his feet, driving them until he fell into the end zone.  The 2-point conversion for the win looked like it would fail, with defenders surrounding him immediately.  It didn’t matter.  He broke at least three tackles before getting his team the win.  23-22, Paintsville.

Just when I thought I couldn’t like him anymore, he made Richard Sherman look like an amateur in his postgame interview with WYMT .  It was aggressive awesomeness that could only be compared to Ric Flair after a World Championship.

 

Kash Daniel is the superhero of single-A, and you should be proud that he bleeds blue.

      From our Ohio commits here are the results:
      Benny Snell’s fifth touchdown of the game with 30 seconds remaining gave Westerville Central a comeback victory over visiting New Albany.
      Snell rumbled for 271 yards on 31 carries for the Warhawks (2-0) {really hope we can keep this guy}

      Gunnar Hoak threw three touchdown passes to Eric Bradford and host Dublin Coffman (2-0) rolled over neighborhood rival Dublin Scioto (0-2).

      I did live in FL for 30 years so won’t leave out Mac.
      Mac Jones completed 13 of 22 passes for 173 yards, leading the Bulldogs to a come-from-behind victory at Class 6A school Heritage (1-1).

    Maybe we should recruit him as a QB since he has been playing a lot of it?

      In what context is that a compliment? And how old are you? Calling people “dildo”? Try some sex (with a woman) some time.

      Bans? LOLOLOLOLOL. Bans don’t work here. Just reboot your PC, obtain a new IP address, and you’re back in business.

      Rebooting will not give you a new IP. Local IP perhaps. It’s the IP your internet service provider assigns you that will matter.

    I loved watching this game on WYMT, Kash has incredible heart you can see it the way he performs. The interview was an instant classic and the first thing he said was about his O line was just something special, I’ve never watched mountain football until last night but I will from now on if he’s playing.
