    I thought that sounded unlikely, as Steve Lochmueller grabbed 948 rebounds in his Tell City varsity career and averaged 17.0 rebounds per game as a senior in 1970-71.

    HAWESVILLE, Ky. – Having been a fan of Brantley Gilbert’s music even when he was only a song writer for the big shots, and hadn’t yet met fame, Ryan Zuelly couldn’t have imagined how his resemblance to the country star, would be such a story to tell.

    In a video posted to Facebook, Zuelly can be seen walking into Evansville’s Ford Center Feb. 23, minutes before a concert headlined by Gilbert was to begin.
