BETSY LAYNE - The Betsy Layne Bobcats continue to excel on the gridiron. Betsy Layne won its second straight Kentucky Christian University 7-on-7 passing tournament on Thursday. The Bobcats’ resume also includes a runner-up finish in a University of Pikeville-hosted passing tournament.
Betsy Layne lost quarterback Dylan Hamilton (2,852 yards, 34 touchdowns), top rusher Houston Hall (622 yards, nine touchdowns) and linebacker Blake Spencer as 10 seniors moved on via graduation.
After leading Betsy Layne in receiving, senior Peyton Case (1,012 yards, 13 touchdowns receiving) entered the offseason with the chore of moving to quarterback. Case is set to lead the Bobcats.
In addition to Case, Dustin Rogers (WR/DB, Sr.), Lako Daniels (HB/LB/DE, Sr.), Blake Rose (OL/DL, Sr.), Jonathan Brock (HB/LB/DE, Sr.) and Nathan Collum (RB/DB, So.) return for the Bobcats.
Betsy Layne compiled a 9-1 regular-season record in 2013, falling to eventual region champion Somerset in the opening round of the Class 2A State Playoffs.
The Bobcats compete with Prestonsburg, Shelby Valley and Leslie County in Class 2A, District 8.
