EXTRA POINTS: Thursday games how I hate thee

Final thoughts

It’s tough to be a Greenup County fan right now.

Saying the Musketeers have struggled this year is an understatement.

This season, Greenup County has gone winless, and has been outscored 261-62.

Players have been suspended, injuries have taken a toll on the roster, and the Musketeers have one of the hardest schedules in the area.

But while it’s easy to pick on coach Chris Mullins and his team, I want to point out some positivity.

This team has not given up, even when it’s been so easy to.

Matt Lawson continues to run the ball hard, and carry a Greenup County team through injuries.

He’s also had to learn quarterback for some games along with being the Musketeers' main running threat.

And while it may look like the sky is falling over Lloyd, sometimes coaches and players need time to build.

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither were some of the best sports teams of all time.

In the words of the great Axl Rose, all we need is a little patience.
