FCA hosts movie night

October 22, 2014


With a new scoreboard and video board at McCallister Field, it was a no brainer for the high school and its organizations to find other uses outside of football games.
West Point High School Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) director Austin Baker and Central School assistant principal Brad Cox saw an innovative way to spread the FCA message and reach out to the community.

Hebron downs perfect Central

October 20, 2014


PHEBA — Nothing much can stop Hebron Christian’s Collin Moore on a Friday night — not even a broken rib.
Despite the nagging injury that occurred earlier in the season, a resilient Moore was in the opponent’s backfield constantly, and when his number was called on the offensive side of the ball, he delivered.
Eagle Head Coach David Foster joked after the game that if Moore weighed 40 pounds more, he would probably be outlawed. In short, Moore was a headache for a previously unbeaten Central Academy in all four quarters.

LAKE CORMORANT — The West Point Green Wave (6-3; 3-1 District 1-5A) has seemingly found its groove … and senior running back Kadarius Forside has done the same.
Forside rushed for three touchdowns in West Point’s 35-6 win over the winless Lake Cormorant Gators Friday in Lake Cormorant.
Forside scored touchdowns on carries of 47 and 8 yards to help West Point build a 28-0 lead at halftime of the District 1-5A game.

Injured Wave teammates not forgotten

October 17, 2014


When the West Point Green Wave enters the football field it is together, no matter the circumstances. And even before the game begins the team goes through a ritualistic dance.
After West Point tears through a paper sign designed by the cheerleaders and have locked arms around the 10-yard line, the team begins to sway from side-to-side, simulating the motions of a wave. It is done prior to every game.
The meaning behind the swaying is more than just pregame intimidation or the cool factor. It is about brotherhood.

Change of perception

October 17, 2014


Respect is earned on the gridiron. It is not handed out or given away without a cost.
The price is summed up with wins, hard-fought battles and effort at the completion of a game. And with respect being a perceived notion, for many, it can be difficult to change. For some programs, it can be an even more daunting task than many would want to take on.
However, the Oak Hill Raiders in the past three seasons, led by 12 seniors, have tackled this task.

Clay County teams hit gridiron

October 3, 2014


The games are counting for more and more marbles. The scenarios are not win or go home ... yet, but the magnitude of each game grows each passing week.
After the first half of the season, in which non-district opponents were played, the Clay County football teams are hoping to make progress in division championship bids and postseason aspirations.

Eagles succeed with role players

October 2, 2014


PHEBA — The stats that matter are touchdowns and yards for football’s casual observers. The marquee stats, some would call them, fill up the newspaper columns and television highlight reels constantly. Touchdowns are what people want to see on a regular basis.
The supporting cast sometimes gets pushed to the wayside. In the wake of other teammates’ success, the role players fade into the shadows.
