  • Liberty can't hang on

    A strong start for the Liberty Minutemen against top-ranked Brookville quickly faded and the Minutemen were unable to hold on in a 49-21 loss to the Bees.

    Liberty opened the game with a surprise onside kick that they recovered to get their offense on the field first. Starting around midfield the Minutemen drove down the field taking almost five minutes off the clock.

    The drive was capped off with a nine-yard touchdown run from junior quarterback Alladdin Elroumy.

  • The NFL Lacks Identity

       

    For the first time in recent memory the NFL is in foreign territory, neck deep in water and struggling to keep its head above. The NFL has no identity.
     

    The league has become the unfortunate personification of Spongebob when he lost his name tag and then proceeded to lose his mind because it meant he had no identity.
        

    That is the current state of the NFL, although it’s handling it a tad better than Mr. Squarepants did, in the public eye at least.
        

  • Cavaliers Crush Rustburg

    Jefferson Forest found itself back in the win column following a 56-20 win over the Rustburg Red Devils.

    The score was impressive for the Cavaliers considering the team is missing eight  two-way starters with three out of their four starting running backs out with injury. Perhaps more impressive is that the team piled up over 600 yards rushing despite all of those injuries.

    Three Cavaliers players finished with over 100 yards on the ground. Senior running back Hunter Millner led the team with 192 yards on 12 carries.

  • Golden Eagles roll over Fleming

    The Staunton River Golden Eagles took to the road to maintain their perfect season traveling to William Fleming to take on the Colonels.

    Calling the performance the Golden Eagles put on display 'dominant' might not do it justice. Staunton River's defense pitched a shutout and obliterated the Colonels 58-0 to move to 9-0 on the season.

    "Our goal is to be 1-0 at the end of every week," Head Coach Chuck Poston said.

  • Staunton River battles off the Terriers

    "We're so happy for Grayson," Golden Eagles Head Coach Chuck Poston said. "We're rooting for him every time he steps on the field."
