  • First sighting of Ballinger left...

    Sports editors aren’t the best judge of athletic talent. But, the old saying “a blind squirrel will find a nut ever once in a while” holds true in at least this one case.
    It was December of 2005 when I traveled to Russell County to watch Taylor County play Marion County in a holiday tournament basketball game.
    The game before that pitted Glasgow vs. Carroll County. I found a little interest in that game since the Carroll County coach, Randy Mefford, had played basketball and golf at Campbellsville College.
