CORBIN, Ky. (WYMT) - For the first time in four years, the Redhounds are heading to Lexington.

A Brody Wells pick-six with a little over two minutes to play sealed the deal for Corbin, beating Franklin County 49-35 to advance to the KHSAA Class 4A state football championship.

The win marks the Redhounds’ tenth trip to a state championship game. Corbin will be seeking their first championship since 1982.

CHS will play Boyle County in the KHSAA UK HealthCare State Football Final. Kickoff is set for Friday at 8 p.m.

The Rebels are led by former Corbin head coach Justin Haddix, who coached the Redhounds to their last state title appearances in 2017 and 2018.
