Danville Mayor Mike Perros, Danville Schools Superintendent Keith Look, Danville football head coach Clay Clevenger, Boyle County Judge-Executive Harold McKinney, Boyle County Schools Superintendent Mike LaFavers and Boyle County football head coach Chuck Smith posed for a photo op and spoke on-air on WRNZ with Charlie Perry, as a crowd of around 20 attended the event. The Boyle County Rebels will play Corbin at 7 p.m. Friday for the Class 3A state championship. The Danville Admirals will play Mayfield at 1 p.m. Saturday for the Class 2A state championship. Both games will be played on Kroger Field in Lexington.
