  • Extra Points: A loss is never...

        A trophy or title does not define a person or a team. The Staunton River team has worked so hard to overcome the stigma that was put on them. They have proved to a community that once didn’t believe a State title could ever be in their future that it was.        They have overcome the loss of students, friends, and fellow athletes. They went to a State Championship and played one of the toughest games all season.
        They played all 48 minutes and never gave up.

  • Extra Points: Astonished

        Wow; that was about the only word I felt like I could say watching that Staunton River football team on Saturday. I don’t mean wow as a bad thing I mean wow as a good thing. I could not believe some of the plays this team was making.
        Watching this Golden Eagles team reminds me of watching Brookville back when I was in school, just everything about it amazed me. Sometimes it was truly better than watching college or even the NFL.
