Senior West Point Guard Tre Williams inked with East Central Community College Tuesday morning after being named all-district last season averaging 9.75 points and four rebounds a game. Coach Brad Cox said that he thinks he can succeed at the next level because Williams is a solid, all-around player who shoots the ball well from the perimeter.
“I chose East Central because I like their coaching staff, and they seem to care a lot about their players and helping them be successful,” said Williams. “I just felt like it was a place where it could help me get better.”

Baseball: the game of life

March 31, 2014

The grass is greener, the sky is bluer and spring is in the air. And if you’re anything like me that only means one thing: Baseball season is in full swing. Flashback about 14 years or so, and picture me a wild-eyed 9-year-old who could not wait to get on the field named after my granddaddy, Spanky Bruce, for opening day of city league baseball. As a kid, opening day of baseball was a lot like Christmas, but 10 times better.
