This Friday night is going to be a big night for our area football teams. West Point will be trying to bring home another district title, Oak Hill will be vying for a playoff spot, and though Hebron has been knocked out of the post-season run, they will be hosting Winona for a district game on the Eaglesâ€™ senior night.
The Green Wave (8-1; 5-0) are coming off a big 49-0 win over Saltillo, and they are still undefeated in district play. The Tigers were West Pointâ€™s latest victims during the Green Wave senior night on Friday.
Oak Hill football seniors Drew Pickle, Jordan Hawkins and Doss Miller were all honored in a pre-game ceremony last Friday night in recognition of their final home game as Oak Hill Raiders.
Baseball fans love stories about the underdog. They also love to hate the New York Yankees, that is of course, non-Yankee fans love to hate the Yankees.
The Yankees are an easy target because they are in the playoff mix nearly every season, missing only one post-season since 1995. A perception of greed and cut throat business surrounds the New York organization, which spends more money than any of the other 29 teams in baseball. Some have referred to them as the â€śevil empire.â€ť
