    CHS (4-4) scored early and often during the Wildcats’  homecoming game as senior signalcaller Josh Hicks got the party started with a 19-yard strike to fellow senior Dra Thornton for the Eagles’ first score.

  • Move handshakes to pre-game

    I first noticed this in the mid-1970s in Euclid, Ohio (suburb of Cleveland) where I was watching a baseball game as the University of Tennessee was recruiting a basketball player who just happened to also compete on the diamond.
    After the game, I noticed both teams going through a line, shaking hands or giving each other opponent a high five.
    I thought it was odd then and as time goes on I think it’s still odd.
    I know the standard lines — it’s good to show sportsmanship and youngsters need to learn to be “good” losers.
