Jackson County Football head coach John Hallock made an eloquent appearance on KSR earlier this morning, and he’s not done spreading his message of hope.
After interviewing the head coach live on the show, our own Matt Jones caught the pregame speech that Hallock gave to both his Jackson County team and their opponent, Shawnee High School out of Louisville. During his time on the show this morning, Hallock was preaching solidarity between all people. He carried that over to his speech on the gridiron.

“We’ve come here to play you all, to show support, and to show unity,” Coach Hallock said. “This is what football is all about. Without this right here, we wouldn’t be together.”
From the Hood to the Holler.
This is what inspired me to take a stand for all of Kentucky. This truth is why I fight.
Shawnee is my neighborhood school…just up the street from my mom’s house.
This right here means everything. https://t.co/I1gVhjX5tN
