As high school, college and pro football season approaches, so too does Fantasy Football draft day.
The Tri-County Sports Authority’s Dirty Dawgs, a 16-under travel baseball team, placed second in the high school division of the Stars and Stripes July Bash, which was held in Knoxville, Tennessee last weekend.
When it comes to having success, no team in the Tri-County has had more during the past 10 years than the South Laurel Lady Cardinals soccer program.
Second Time Around
When all is said and done after the 2014 high school soccer season, a lot of teams will measure their success by wins and losses.
THE WAY IT IS: The times, they are a changing
The times, they are a changing — especially in the Tri-County high school sports scene.
The Tri-County Sports Authority youth football league, which usually fields in the neighborhood of 200 players, is about to get a little more crowded this season.
THE WAY IT IS: Football is in the air in the Tri-County
These cool summer days are reminding me of the cool football Friday nights of September and October, and with that said, these cooler temperatures have me in the mood of writing about things to come for our local football teams in the Tri-County.
It’s never too early to talk about what games will be the big ones for the Tri-County high school football fans to watch this upcoming season. I’ve tried to narrow my list down to 10 games, but honestly, it really wasn’t easy to do — but I did manage to do it.
Let’s just say things should be very entertaining, and interesting, for you the fan this season.
