  • Teen starts drive for little...

    A LaRue County High School student has started a drive to assist young athletes.

    Briar Holt, a sophomore, played baseball from the time he was 4 – and later branched into soccer. He played for the varsity baseball team last spring but has decided to hang up his cleats this year.

    “I’m focusing on academics this year,” he said.

    His heart is still in the sport, however. Working with LaRue County Park and Recreation, he has organized a hand-me-down program for used baseball gear – gloves, bats, cleats and pants.
