Pickens excited about first year as Lady Wave coach

November 8, 2012

The Lady Wave are an extremely young squad, returning only one player with playing time experience from last year’s ball club. Though Saturday’s loss in the Green Wave Classic to Kusciusko 33-28. The Lady Wave gave relentless effort and got it within two points in fourth quarter against the Lady Whippets but never could close the gap in the losing effort. The game against Kusciusko could have dampened first year Coach Kendall Pickens’ spirit, but he knows that this season for his girls is a time to grow into better ball players.

Where else but the SEC?

November 7, 2012

Alabama has almost been dominated the whole game against a number five ranked LSU who possibly has played their best game all season. Yet facing a 17-14 deficit, a glimmer of hope was given to the Crimson Tide. LSU’s Drew Alleman’s missed field goal with less than 2 minutes to go in the game allowed Alabama’s Heisman Trophy hopeful A.J. McCarron to lead a drive which will forever go down in Crimson Tide lore. McCarron took about three plays before he found true freshman T.J. Yeldon on a screen pass allowing Yeldon to scamper into the end zone from 28 yards out.
