NKY High School Football Spotlight: Bellevue
Bryan Burke - The River City News
New Bellevue football coach Woody McMillen has already become comfortable in his new post as he enjoys working at smaller schools.

“We had 7-on-7 (drills) this week with Campbell County, Conner, Mason County and Boone County, and here we are throwing with teams with more guys in their senior class than we have in our entire school,” he said. “I have only been at small schools. I came from Ludlow and I was the first football coach at Walton Verona, so me personally, I don’t think I would like it at a larger school.

"What I like about the small school, especially a community like Bellevue, is that historically football has been so important to the people here. You really get to establish a lot more relationships with the kids at a small school, and right out of the gate I really took to these guys and they seem to be really receptive to what I am trying to teach them.“

So far, he likes the attitudes he sees from his players and from the community in terms of their hard-nosed grit and willingness to learn.

“We’ve got a real good look at them. They’re working hard and I have been really pleased with their effort. I think their attitudes have been really good and their willingness to accept teaching has also been really good,” said McMillen.

McMillen likes the speed of his team and feels good about his offensive line which he hopes to establish the run a bit more compared to the recent Bellevue teams of former coach Johnny Poynter who led a mostly pass-first approach to his offense.
