The 2016 football season got off to a rocky start for the Washington County Commanders. The team opened with five straight losses after suffering some injuries to key players.
In week six, the Commanders found their groove, hosting Trimble County, and picked up a 41-0 win. They followed that up with a 56-20 thumping of district foe Shawnee to make their mark 2-5.
From that point, with three games to play in the regular season, things started to look uphill again as state powers DeSales and Christian Academy of Louisville stood in front of the Commanders.
