  • Understanding the Grind

    Many of us refer to consistent, hard work as “the grind.” I ran across a great quote that says, “you can’t cheat the grind, it knows how much you have invested. It won’t give you anything you haven’t worked for.” Kane Harris, a senior football player for the Hawks fully understands what that ‘grind’ means, and is devoted to leading LaRue County Hawks Football to a successful season.

    Harris has been playing football since he was ten years old.
