Kentucky Stallions Press Releases

  • Stallions Hire Darius Hodnett for Head Coach Vacancy +

    The Stallions shocked many by allowing Miquel Wolock to join the Enforcers this offseason. Wolock had been with the team 2017 amassing a 91-149 record. Wolock had the unenviable task of helping to rebuild the Stallions following poor fiscal planning by former GM Doug Ranger. Following the 2017 Stallion 42-38 record the team was forced to make hard financial decisions in regards to multiple veteran contracts. The team could not afford to bring back long time Stallions C Jadon Bond, C/PF Geoffrey Damas, and PF Tristen Barnes. With the team’s interior defense gutted the 2018 Stallions went an abysmal 19-61 and could not hold onto perennial all-star David Witherspoo in the offseason. The 2019 Stallions bounced back without their all-time Read More
  • Stallions take Jackson and Wakefield in the First round of OBWL Draft +

    Stallions take Jackson and Wakefield in the First round of OBWL Draft The Stallions had to address several deficiencies that plagued them all last season on their way to the league’s 2nd worse record. The lottery gods were somewhat kind to Kentucky by awarding them the 3rd overall pick in the OBWL 2019 draft. With multiple solid wing players projected in the top 5 by league scouts and with no deal done for David Witherspoo it made sense for Kentucky to take a wing player with the third overall pick. Kentucky selected nineteen year old freshman SG/SF Andrew Jackson out of UNLV. Jackson looks to have solid upside with several OBWL scouts projecting him as the first overall pick in Read More
  • Stallion’s Woeful Season takes an All Star Break +

    The Stallions have had few seasons in their history as bad as this. At 9-39 they look to be headed to the lottery pick positions in the next OBDL draft. The Stallions are clearly shedding cap space and trading for draft picks this season. Newton Gorman seems to be the next long time Stallion destined for a move with a number of teams in talks for the veteran point guard. Gorman will not be the first Stallion to move onto another team this season. Andy Cambre, the lone veteran offseason acquisition of the Stallions, moved onto the greener pastures of the defending champions Thunderbirds. The move came as a surprise to some with the Stallions receiving only two 2nd round Read More
  • Padres Closeout Sweep of OBDL Finals +

    Padres Closeout Sweep of OBDL Finals The Padres capped off their second half season rebirth with a finals sweep of the Paris Lions in the OBDL championship series. The Padres benefitted from the decision of their parent club, the Kentucky Stallions, to send several Rookies showing promise down to the ODBL in search of more consistent playing time. Kentucky’s first year General Manager Robert Sheppard felt that the expanded playtime and starter role would help improve his squad in the long term. “John (Esposito) and Xavier (Parker) are on the cusp of being major contributors to the Stallions. They showed with the limited minutes they were seeing in the OBWL that they could make a positive impact on the course Read More
  • Stallions Season Preview +

    Free agency The Stallions were active but largely underwhelming in free agency this off season. The team appeared to target a perimeter scorer to pair with the always formidable David Witherpoo. High dollar free agents Mark Marble and Ross Hanner were in talks with the team for some time but neither negotiation ended up being fruitful for Stallions. Team owner Harris Leon deflected when asked on the state of team’s purse strings and his overall wiliness to go after top tier talent with top tier contracts, “We are currently in a relatively small market as compared to many of the teams we were competing with in those negotiations. The player’s demands for salaries and time were not aligning with our Read More
  • Butterfield Sign and Trade PR +

    Butterfield moves to Tampa The end of the 2015 season was bittersweet for the Stallions and despite some impressive play by members of the starting squad, change was not ruled out. The Stallions starting point guard was Todd Butterfield who had made a name for himself in the final year of his contract, and due to the upswing in his performance was invited to be an American Conference All Star. That game had been a disappointment in regards to showing off his potential, but this didn’t stop interest from the Tampa Bay Tritons from seeing the key to their future. After the All-star game, while leading the team Todd helped the Stallions make strides to move from merely a playoff Read More
  • Kentucky Draft Approach +

    The off-season came earlier than expected, after the Stallions first round exit at the hands of the seventh seeded Americans. This lead management to do a thorough analysis of what direction the franchise was heading in, and how the team would plan on moving forward. Internally, change was expected and feels like a natural progression given the age of the team. So going into the draft, management felt we needed to add some big bodies to the organization. The Stallions knew that coming in late to the draft with the 53rd pick; they were not going to make a splash. They considered going down the path of trading up to get a 1st round selection or an early 2nd in Read More
  • Stallions Prepare for Americans +

    Behind the strong play of David Witherspoo the Stallions are pushing for a deep run this year and are hoping to move beyond being a mere Conference Runner-up. At this point in the season the team is now running like a smooth machine in an effort to push for the Heikkinen Cup. There has been a lot of chatter regarding the style of play the team has deployed to make the playoffs this year, much of the criticism was directed at the style of Game-planning the GM relied upon. This has not gone unnoticed as Doug Ranger was overheard leaving the arena after the Stallions drubbing of the Coyotes 113-89… “Haters gone Hate”. With the Playoffs underway the Stallions are Read More
  • Stallions staging a comeback! +

    After a slow start to the season where the team was trying to gather it's bearings, the Stallions have started turning the corner to become the contender they were at the close of the 2013 season. David Witherspoon 30 + ppg has become a common sight as his carrying the team behind his strong play and the support of aged Jadon Bond and his strong efforts to attack the boards. Be warned that the record for the Stallions doesn't tell the whole story, the team dropped off the radar early but they are making there presence known now! Read More
  • Shock for Stallions: Brichzino leaves Kentucky and the OBWL +

    Louisville (KS) - It was a shock for all the fans of the Stallions when today GM Rick Brichzino announced that he will leave Kentucky at the end of the season. "It was no easy decision", Brichzino said. "It is one of the best franchises, I love the town, the team and the fans and we all had a lot of fun and success in the past four years. But somehow I felt that the Da Mario final last year against my old buddy KvM was the highlight of this time, and it's very stressful and a lot of work to make the playoffs again and again every year and to win all the tough games and series. It's too sad Read More
