Admiral for a night

Danville City Commissioner Denise Terry is a proud alumna of Boyle County High School, but on Monday, she wore the Admiral blue of Danville after losing a bet with fellow Commissioner Kevin Caudill.

Terry and Caudill, a Danville grad, have a standing bet on the Danville-Boyle County football game. The loser must wear the winner’s shirt to the next commission meeting.

Danville City Commissioner Kevin Caudill smiles as he explains how he won a bet with fellow Commissioner Denise Terry on the annual Danville-Boyle County football game.

“For the second year in a row, I’ve got to provide Denise with her wardrobe for tonight’s meeting,” Caudill said.

“I just want to say — you’re killing me Rebels, you’re killing me,” Terry said.

Terry said the Danville-Boyle game was excellent — “That game was the epitome of high school football.”

Ads’ kicker Nathan Hazlett scored the game-winning field goal from 45 yards away with just 40 seconds left on the clock, as Danville beat Boyle 10-7 on Aug. 31.

“You have to applaud anyone — especially a high school kid — who can kick a 45-yard field goal,” Terry said. “… I was on the fence (watching the kick) — ‘please don’t hit that;’ ‘oh wow, that would be really awesome;’ ‘please don’t hit that.'”
