  • Lions and Vols both gunning for first region win

    The Andrew Jackson High football team has been impacted by key injuries this year. Obviously, Lewisville Coach Will Mitchell can relate.

  • Chester hosts top-five matchup with Bulldogs

    Tonight’s Chester-Camden game is not officially for the Region IV-AAA championship and number one playoff seed that comes with it. The stakes, however, are still high.

  • Tunall nominated for "Mr. Football" award

    A good offensive lineman, for the most part, does a lot of hard work that allows others to shine. Chester’s Wyatt Tunall is a good offensive lineman.

  • Cyclones roll to 8-0 with blowout of Keenan

    After his team struggled offensively and racked up more than 130 yards of penalties in a close win over Indian Land the previous week, Chester Coach Victor Floyd wanted to see better execution and more discipline from his team. He got both in a big way.

    The Cyclones offered up a thoroughly dominating performance as they blew out Keenan 54-6. Chester scored on its opening drive quickly, getting a 65-yard touchdown run from Pha’Leak Brown to go up 7-0. The team’s only misstep of the night came on the ensuing kickoff.

  • Hoyle wins football picking contest

    A tie-breaker was needed to determine the winner, but when all was said and done, Brian Hoyle of Chester as emerged as the week’s victor in the News & Reporter’s football picking contest.

    Hoyle actually finished in a five-way tie for first with Johnny McKay, Steve Hall, William Farmer and Bobby Flynn at 14-6. In the tie-breaker, though, which was the total number of points scored in the Boston College-N.C. State game, Hoyle’s guess of 44 was the closest to the actual total of 51. For his efforts, Hoyle wins the weekly $50 prize.

  • Lions back home, face Stallions tonight

    There is a new opponent on the schedule for Lewisville in Lee Central, but there is a familiar one in the injury bug.

    The Lions (0-6, 0-2) return home tonight for a region contest against the Stallions. As has been the case in Lewisville’s first two region contests, Coach Will Mitchell said his squad will see a big, strong opponent dedicated to the ground game.

    “They are hard-nosed. A downhill running team that is very physical and athletic,” he said.
