    The past two weeks I’ve gone with teams for the top honors, but this week, it goes back to one player and this was a hard choice.

  • Les Dixon Week Six wasn’t kind to some of our local teams

    Oh, the ups and downs of high school football. One moment your team is winning and you’re on top of the world and in a blink of an eye, things change.

    It might be Corbin’s first district game of the season, but it’s also the most important. Upstart Wayne County pays Campbell Field a visit Friday with a lot at stake in district positioning.
