SOMERSET, Ky. (WYMT) - Three years after winning a state title, the Briar Jumpers are continuing to raise young talent.

“This year I feel like we got a lot more energy on the team,” said junior wide receiver Camera McCaskill. “We’re really enjoying ourselves out there and I feel like that will help us a lot this year.”

Somerset faces stiff competition in the geographic and playing regions but uses that as motivation.

“With us being a city school it’s always been us against the world,” said head coach Robbie Lucas. “I don’t know if we’ve ever had a stranger move in to this football team as soon as they come in, they’re a Briar Jumper.”
