  • Extra Points: I survived my...

    What comes to your mind when you hear Airbnb?

    For me it’s: Potential death. Potential kidnapping. Horror stories used as plots in Criminal Minds episodes. PR nightmare. Allegedly doesn’t rent to minorities.

    Well, this past weekend I put my life at risk (yes, I’m dramatic) and stayed in my first Airbnb room. And although I am alive, it definitely was a unique experience to say the least.

  • Extra Points: 'Schooled...

    Small town life has rendered me a Netflix addict. And within my Netflix addiction, has developed a documentaries obsession.

    Since I’m a sports editor, my review will be about a sports documentary (non-sports documentary recommendation: The Imposter.) This past weekend, I struggled (you’ll see why) through Schooled: The Price of College Sports which is a documentary about why student-athletes should receive a salary.

    If I could rename this documentary I would call it: Schooled: When football players still find more to complain about.

  • Summer Sessions: Our Process

    While other basketball programs may just be getting started with their summer workouts, Staunton River’s team has been hard at work since March.

    Coming off a tough season that saw the Eagles only log in three wins, Head Coach Brandon Harris and his squad are dialing in on making the necessary improvements over the offseason.

  • 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.
