There are many teams across this state that have already received the bad news. They have lost key district games, and they will not be playing football beyond the final week of the regular season.
While times might seem tough for some of our area schools, Clay County is fortunate enough to be able to say that all three teams, the Hebron Christian Eagles (1-6; 0-1), the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-6; 1-1) and the West Point Green Wave (6-1; 3-0) have not sealed their fate as far as the post-season is concerned.

â€śThere were a lot of people,â€ť McDaniel said. â€śAs far as crowd participation goes, it was the best Iâ€™ve seen.â€ť
