    SHELBYVILLE – Dalton Wells didn’t have to wait to start the celebration.

    The Anderson County High School senior drove his penalty shot to the right side of the net. Before it had even nestled in the net, Wells had begun ripping his shirt off to set off a wild celebration never before seen in the history of Bearcat soccer.

    Wells’ shot gave Anderson a 4-2 lead with one kicker left in a tie-breaker shootout with host Collins in the 30th District tournament championship match last Thursday.

    Madison Southern, the defending Class 5A, District 6 champ, has been the favorite to repeat all season and has given no reason to think otherwise. The Eagles have won six of eight games -- the losses were to Tates Creek and Pulaski County -- and have won their two district games by identical 49-7 scores.

    In one of my many business adventures, I bought a hog producing operation in west Tennessee — a 900-head, hog finishing operation. I worked from daylight until dark, (I also held a full-time job), and learned much more than I ever wanted to know about producing hogs.
