- Hazard earns biggest sports victory since Bulldogs won “Sweet 16” State Basketball Championship in 1955. Hazard upsets Mayfield 24-6 to capture the Class A Football State Championship at WKU. The Bulldog defense was stout and held Mayfield to 26 total rushing yards for the game while forcing five turnovers. Senior Zack Blanton carries the ball 25 times for 67 yards and tosses a 28-yard touchdown pass to Austin Johnson. Evan Whitaker adds to the Bulldog scoring with a 4-yard touchdown run. Senior linebacker B.J. Combs, who returned an interception for a score, said after the game, it was “amazing to be the first Hazard football team to win the state. It will be with me the rest of my life and all us seniors will be together forever.”
