  • One Heck of a Ride

    Thankful. That was one of the first words that came to the mind of Golden Eagles superstar Grayson Overstreet when looking back at this season.
     

    A historic season for Staunton River in which the team tied a school record for wins with 13 before falling just short of their ultimate goal of winning a state championship.
     

  • Would You Rather? Sports Edition

    I’m a big fan of games. Which is good considering games are a rather large portion of sports and I cover sports for a living.
     

    But not all games are directly related to sports. Some games are purely fun, some games are slightly dangerous and some are both.
     

    Today we’re going to play a game that is both. This game can be abbreviated into a three letter acronym that really gets people’s brains going. Don’t worry its not that three letter acronym, this game is called “Would you rather.”

    The Liberty Minutemen boy’s basketball team hit the road, in search of their first win, and paid a visit to the Liberty Christian Academy Bulldogs.
     

    Liberty Christian is one of the top teams in the Seminole District and the Minutemen gave them all they could handle but it was not enough. The Bulldogs defeated the Minutemen 47-39.
     

  • Heritage haults Staunton River

    The stands filled to the brim on Saturday for the highly anticipated matchup between the Heritage Pioneers and the Staunton River Golden Eagles. Fans had to get to the stadium over two hours before kickoff to get a parking spot in the actual school parking lot and the grass surrounding the parking lot. The Pioneers were the only thing standing in the Golden Eagles way to get back to the Class 3 State Championship, where their season ended last season.
     

  • 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.

    The first matchup of the season between the Liberty Minutemen and the Jefferson Forest Cavaliers saw no shortage of action. The Minutemen traveled to face the Cavaliers and thanks to a strong second half the Cavaliers came away with a 60-44 victory.
     

  • The NFL's Weird...

    With just five weeks to go in the NFL season we are soon going to go from watching 26-30 teams play each week to no more than eight. Because of this we will see a decrease of end zone celebrations, one of the best things that happen on a weekly basis on Sundays.
     

    I am a huge advocate for celebrations. I absolutely love them and I always have.
     

    When I first fell in love with football in the mid-2000’s it was celebrations galore after a touchdown.

  • Running On

    Just keep swimming is a popular phrase from the movie Finding Nemo, the Staunton River Golden Eagles have tweaked that slightly. Instead of swimming they’re running the football down opposing defense’s throats.
     

    That trend continued against Blue Ridge District rival Lord Botetourt. Staunton River rushed for nearly 500 yards in a 49-31 victory over the Cavaliers.
