  • Overstreet chases multiple State...

    Grayson Overstreet is closing in on not one, not two, but three State records.

    The rising senior from Staunton River is only 1,428 rushing yards, 18 touchdowns and 68 points away from claiming three State career records as his own.

    All three records are certainly in reach for 6’2”, 220 lbs fullback/linebacker. Especially considering in just his junior season he rushed 2,958 yards, snagged 49 touchdowns and collected 385 points.

  • Jefferson Forest sister duos...

    Jefferson Forest girls soccer has a long tradition of success and these three families were lucky enough to enjoy it twice.

    The O’Bryant, Ratliff and Yeager sisters each played on JF’s team, with at least one of the sisters winning a State championship.

    Jessica and Carter O’Bryant are four years apart and unfortunately never got to play together, but Jessica was in attendance when Carter captured the State championship.

  • Summer Sessions: Men of Summer

    Jefferson Forest’s football team kicked off its Men of Summer program on June 12.

    The six week program runs Monday through Thursday from 7-10:30 a.m.

  • Extra Points: Dear recent...

    Two weekends ago I travelled back to civilization, whoops, I meant Chicago, for my master’s graduation.

    I’m only 24, but walking across the stage to receive my second degree made me feel old and wise (I am neither) and got me thinking about what I should’ve done to maximize my college experiences.

  • Sharpe: Small town boy makes it...

    Not many people can say they are working their dream job, but Bedford native Joe Sharpe certainly can.

    “The running joke between me and my mother was that I was going to watch sports my whole life and get paid for it,” said Sharpe, who is currently  the head trainer for the OKC Thunder.

  • Catching up with Kasey Carr

    Liberty alumna Kasey Carr continued her softball success at Longwood University, but not at the position she expected.

    After pitching most of her high school career with dashes of playing short stop, Carr spent the majority of her freshmen season at first base.   

  • Jon Tobin pursues football...

    Jon Tobin is a relative newcomer to football, but that hasn’t stopped him from excelling since picking up the sport four years ago.

  • Bob Humphreys reflects on more...

    Bob Humphreys first got involved with baseball way back in 1944.

    He was listening to the radio broadcast of the 1944 World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Browns and instantly became a fan of the Cardinals and their outfielder/first basemen, Stan Musial.

    “That was when I first started thinking about baseball and that I’d like to play ball,” said Humphreys. “I got a thing off the back of a Wheaties box about pitching... I think it cost me a quarter. That’s how I got started throwing the ball.”

  • JF soccer wins State title in...

        After cruising through the regular season and the conference and region playoffs, Jefferson Forest’s girls soccer team was pushed to the brink, both mentally and physically.

        It was a true test of tenacity and grit on June 9-10, as the Cavs left it all on the field in back-to-back shootouts en route to capturing the program’s first ever 4A State Championship title.

  • 3A/4A State Outdoor Track and...

    The Cavs found great success at the State championship, producing six top 10 finishes and a State champion.

    The Lady Cavs were especially noteworthy, as they finished 18 out of 27 teams with 17.50 points.
