High School

  • Some silly ideas

    In most professional sports, portions of the off-season are often referred to as "the silly season." That's when ridiculous rumors and speculation are rampant. If high school sports has such a time of year, it would be now.

  • Schedule set for football jamboree

    It has become the final tune-up local teams have before kicking the season off for real and it's the only opportunity for fans to see all three Chester County football teams on the same field.
    The schedule has now been set for the seventh annual Chester County Football Jamboree. The event was created in 2009 as a way to fill the void left by the discontinuation of the Rock Hill jamboree and has turned into an event that showcases Chester, Lewisville and Great Falls and a host of former county athletic standouts.

  • Young Red Devils ready for the season

    In every respect, the Great Falls football team will be young this year.

  • Lions have a strong finish

    Normally, linemen are not active participants in 7-on-7 competitions, since there is no blocking or tackling and every play is a passing play. Only skill position players on offense and linebackers and defensive backs are even on the field...accept at Lewisville.

  • Cycs wrap up summer passing season

    A summer of 7-on-7 competitions helps quarterbacks and receivers get on the same page, gives young players a taste of competition and gives a defense lots of work on covering the pass. However, they are held in sweltering heat and aren't real football.
    "We're 7-on-7'd out," said Chester Coach Victor Floyd.
    The Cyclones are finished with the summer passing circuit now, having concluded a long two months of work on Saturday.

  • Thieves steal sled, pads, equipment from CHS

    With Chester High School's football team being off for the week of July 4, no one was supposed to be on the practice field for several days. Someone was, but it unfortunately wasn't a Cyclones coach or player.

  • The finish line...Kenneth Schofield

    Kenneth Schofield remembers his last football game as a player pretty well, since he scored a deciding touchdown...and didn't hurt himself in the process.

  • Cycs and Lions have a good night

    With a mix consistency, big plays and steady improvement, Chester and Lewisville both got what they wanted out of a 7-on-7 session on Thursday at Chester High School.

  • Cyclones show well at Irmo

    The Chester Cyclones football team had a good morning on Saturday...but not a good afternoon.
    Chester, in its first real 7-on-7 tournament of the summer, went a perfect 4-0 in pool play at Irmo High School. However, the team lost in its first game of tournament play to bow out in the quarterfinals.

  • Stealing ideas, saving the world

    If you're going to steal somebody's material, you should at least steal good material. That's what I'm doing.
