    The best part about my job is that I get to talk to all the student-athletes and coaches. I get to carry on a conversation about a sport they love and how well their team is doing. I get to experience the games alongside the team and hear the excitement after every score. I hear the coaches talking to the players and trying to keep them motivated when the game isn’t going as well as they would have hoped.

        In a low scoring affair, Jefferson Forest was able to take over and secure its 35-21 victory over Millbrook last Friday in the second round of the 4A playoffs.
        Coach Bob Christmas is pleased with how far his team has come this season. “I felt like it went well. I don’t think we were as sharp as we had been. The bye week probably didn’t help us and we were playing a really good football team,” said Christmas.

        Inconsistency plagued Liberty all season long. That continued Friday night as the Minutemen fell 52-14 to Lord Botetourt in the first round of the 3A West playoffs.
        “We didn’t move them upfront consistently on offense and we didn’t tackle well when we were on defense. Thats a bad combination if you’re trying to win a playoff game,” said Liberty Coach Chris Watts.

        The air was cold and the wind was blowing so fiercely that the ball was unable to stay on the tee. Staunton River’s stands were packed with students, faculty, family and locals piled in to see just how far the Eagles could fly.
