Kentucky Stallions Press Releases

  • El Presidente wins player of the Week +

    Andrew Jackson, aka “the President”, was named player of the week for the last week of February and Start of March. Jackson has average 29.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.5 assists over the week. This is AJ’s first player of the week award. When asked about the achievement he responded with, “It is an honor to be recognized for my individual performance but I am pleased about the way the team is playing. If we can keep playing like this we’ll be in the playoffs for sure.” Jackson has received some criticism in the past from around the league in regards to his inconsistent scoring but with games of 34, 38, 20, 33, and 26, he is finally demonstrating the Read More

  • Stallions make first Playoffs since 2017 Season but GM still not Content +

    The Louisville Gazette was finally granted an interview by Stallions general manager Robert Sheppard as the OBWL Finals reaches game four. The GM had refused to meet with the press for much of the season and only agreed to our interview after pressure from the league office. When asked on his lack of media interaction Sheppard had this to say, “Look I am running a team, no an organization, that needs constant supervision. I know some GMs are happy to discuss every decision they make with the press, including their lunch orders, I am not that type of GM.” When asked what decisions took up the GMs time he responded with, “After another overhaul of our roster in free agency Read More
  • A long Strange Trip Around the League +

    When Mckinley Brownin took the short trip to the Horseland Centre this afternoon from the hotel he arrived at late this morning, he parked his bag in a familiar spot. By either pure happenstance or a team manager with a sense of irony, Brownin placed his bag in the same locker he cleaned out almost 3 years ago to the day he was traded to the Sea Dogs. “At least this time I was able to celebrate the holidays with my family before the trade,” Brownin said to reporters. Brownin would go on to win a championship with the Seadogs during the 2018-19 season. The Stallions on the other hand have had three losing seasons in a row. Brownin is Read More
  • 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
