Oak Hill senior returns from neck injury to play basketball

December 6, 2012

The football field at North Delta School grew eerily quiet; an Oak Hill player had gone down and did not look like he was getting back up. The opening round MAIS AA playoff game had been paused to attend to the fallen player. Soon the realization that an ambulance and helicopter had been called made the situation even more desperate.
On a routine tackle, Jeb Stevens found himself injured, a situation he never expected.
“I did not know what to think,” commented Stevens, “When they said it was severe enough to bring a helicopter, it really scared me.”

County a football hotbed

December 5, 2012

Now that all of the high school football state championships have been played and everybody around the state has closed out their 2012 season, I wanted to look back at how well the young men of Clay County faired this past football season. All three Clay County schools (West Point, Oak Hill, and Hebron Christian) combined for a 25-11 record on the season, with two teams making the playoffs. The football teams in Clay County had grit and determination throughout the year. Taking on tough opponents, Clay County usually came away the victors.
