  • Good judgment and college football

    When a football team is in the huddle, the quarterback is the one who calls the play whether he makes the decision or it is sent in from the sidelines.
    When the team gets to the line of scrimmage, he then decides whether the play call will be successful against the defensive formation or an audible needs to be called.  
    If you are a fan or a member of the team you hope that the quarterback’s judgment is sound and the decisions he makes will be the right ones.   

  • Cross country opens season with good performances in two meets

    Tuesday was to be an all comers meet and several middle school teams were there, but Scott County and Harrison County had the only varsity teams.
