Scott Picks Tigers

Gloucester Athlete James Scott has grown into a role of punisher with the football in his hands. His Dukes’ team has been undermanned, but he’s still been the guy you didn’t want to see carrying the ball. He’s only a year away from taking his game to the college level, and he’s now decided where he’s going. He’ll have to adapt to playing on the defensive side of the ball, but everything else lined up. Now he can focus on finishing his high school career.

Presidents On The Comeback Trail

The Wilson Presidents have had a tough time recently. Coach Curtis Williams inherited a program that was downtrodden, but with a rich history. In Williams’ first season as head coach, he guided the team to a 4-6 record. That was the best that the team had seen since 2004. In the last two seasons, the Presidents have been winless. They’re young again in 2013, but the coach is confident that the program is headed in the right direction.

Bay Rivers Schedule Preview

As we say farewell to the old district alignments, we’re going to review the football schedules by the old groupings one more time. There will be no more All-District team. No District Championships. The heady days of the free wheelin’ Bay Rivers District won’t be forgotten. The rivalries between the teams can’t be forgotten. While Bruton drops to Division 2, and New Kent and Smithfield remain far removed from everyone geographically, fans are going to miss seeing these teams play each other on a weekly basis. You have two years (in football) to say goodbye.

Green Run Starts Anew, Literally

The Jeff McGowan regime at Green Run has begun, but don’t take McGowan for a first time coach. He’s been through this before. Jeff played his college ball at Appalachian State, and he’s coached in the Beach District, most recently at Kempsville. After a few years away from the high school game, McGowan is renewed and he’s found Green Run to be his opportunity to begin again. That new start began officially on Thursday with open try outs for everyone. Instead of meeting with resistance, he’s been met with enthusiasm, especially from the players who held a spot on last year’s 2-8 team.

Bruins Prep For The Next Step

The Western Branch Bruins took a break from their losing ways and with the help of first year coach Greg Gibson, made it to the playoffs and beat Bethel in the first round. The season that the Bruins had surprised many and shocked the Southeastern District. With this being said, the Bruins are going to be held to a higher standard this year. People know that Western Branch is going to be good and opponents will play them tougher than ever. The graduation of CJ Thomas has left an empty spot at quarterback and more importantly, the graduation of Southeastern District MVP Josh Marriner has left a huge hole to fill at running back. Bruins fans, do not fret. Coach Gibson has a plan.

Strength In Numbers For the Gators This Year

The Greenbrier Christian Gators graduated what could be called the best senior class GCA has ever had. With the departure of Ty Smith and Bryce Myers, Coach Donnie Simpson is not worried about the upcoming season. A few things will look different for the Gators, the flex bone that Gator fans have come accustomed to will change into the wishbone. The lack of big stars on this years team has forced the Gators to spread out and get the ball to the skilled kids on the outside.
