  • Early Anderson deluge makes for happy homecoming, district win

    About 10 minutes prior to the kickoff of Anderson County's district football opener with Grant County last Friday, the gray sky dropped a steady rain on Hollie Warford Stadium.

    The minor nuisance lasted only a short time but a major storm really was brewing. It wore red jerseys and white pants and was still smarting from a game that had been snatched away seven days before.

  • COLUMN: No coach-speak needed for Friday's game

    When someone has been around this business as long as I have, he can usually decipher coach-speak.

    You know the routine. Coach speak – Rex Ryan not included – has become even more widespread with the Internet making nearly every publication available at the click of a button.

    “They are a good football team.” Translation: “They are the next team on the schedule.”

  • Big win, but not big enough

    FRANKFORT – Every time Franklin County cleared a ball over the top or took its sweet time to get things moving Monday night, it was a lesson to remind Anderson County of the pecking order in the 25th District of girls' high school soccer.

    The scoreboard recorded that Anderson earned an impressive 4-1 win over a team that was 10-3-1 heading into the match.

    But it was not impressive enough.

  • Bearcats roll past Grant in district opener

    Anderson County jumped to a quick 23-0 lead, then cruised to a 46-7 homecoming win over visiting Grant County on Friday night.

    The Bearcats drove 70 yards on the game's opening series with Ethan Kelly going for the touchdown from three yards out. Kelly added an interception return for a touchdown, then after Steven Sims sacked Grant quarterback Nathan Davis for a safety, Seth Carmichael's 7-yard pass to Neal Wells made it 23-0 with 3:30 still to play in the first quarter.
