PHEBA â€” Channing Tapley constructed a reputation for late-game heroics this past fall.
In the MAIS eight-man football playoff game against Delta Academy on Nov. 13 in Pheba, the Hebron Christian sophomore added a needed two-point conversion on a quarterback-designed run, diving over the corner pylon of the end zone and a defender, during the fourth quarter. The conversion gave the gridiron Eagles a 20-14 advantage.
He later threw the game-winning pass to Drew Myatt in overtime for a 26-20 triumph.
Ben L. Carter passed away Monday, March 17, 2014, in Buffalo, Mo.
Complete funeral arrangements will be announced later by Robinson Funeral Home.
Robinson Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
