Georgetown College football is hosting its annual golf outing May 19 at Cherry Blossom Golf Course. Registration begins at 8:45 am in the club house where coffee and breakfast items will be available. Teams or individuals who have been placed in teams, will gather, picking up their sleeve of golf balls as well as complementary apparel with Georgetown and the title sponsor Service First Logistics logos on it.
Tee off shortly after 9 am in shotgun fashion with games and contests around the course. Lunch will be delivered to your carts and pizza will be available as players finish their rounds and await score tabulations.
Kody Kasey's focus these days is to play the sport he loves, for the institution he loves, with the hopes of touching and inspiring even just one person. It is easy to see he has far surpassed all three of these goals as this past fall he returned to Georgetown College football gridiron, returning kickoffs and playing defensive back with a prosthetic leg.
"If I can touch one person or help one individual, that means more to me than anything," Kasey said. "I love football and never doubted from this time a year ago that I would be back on the field, but with the main focus of giving glory to God. I am here because of Him."
His dedication and determination has not gone unnoticed and this past weekend the Ohio native was honored with a rousing standing ovation at Touchdown Club of Columbus' annual football awards banquet as he was presented the 2016 President's Award.
Georgetown College football Tigers have learned their 2017 schedule with the new divisional alignments fixed in the expanded Mid-South Conference. The team will face two new opponents this coming season. Winter weights have begun with students reporting back on campus this past week and spring practice looms large. The annual Orange & Black game is scheduled for April 20.
The No. 25 Tigers will host five games and hit the road for five with an open date still lingering as a potential added game. Georgetown starts the season at Faulkner University on Sept. 2. The team follows that up with home games against two new MSC affiliate members – Southeastern University and Point University.
Monday was the first business day of the new year and Georgetown College football was pleased to learn one of its own will be shaping and molding the foundation of Lexington's newly opening Frederick Douglass High School football program. Brian Landis, a staple on the Tigers' defense during Georgetown's 2000 national title run, was named the Stallions head coach.
"At the end of the day, what's the most important thing? Always in my heart, the most important thing is my family," Landis said. "This decision is for my family and the city of Lexington. I've been a member of this city for 16 years, and it's time for me to give back my knowledge to these young men I will work with and give back to the community and make a champion Frederick Douglass High School will be proud of."
FDHS will be opening in the fall of 2017 as the sixth public high school in Lexington and will help the overcrowding of current Bryan Station and Henry Clay high schools.
