- In front of a record breaking Thoroughbred Bowl crowd of 10,250-- Quarterback Tim Couch lives up to all the hype as his Leslie County team soars past Highlands 44-42 in the 11th annual Thoroughbred Bowl Game at Tates Creek High School. Couch, a 6-foot-5, 210-pound senior, connects on 17 of 30 passes for 287 yards and three touchdowns through the air.
