Football world better; softball readies for state

Football’s world seemed a lot better Saturday morning after diehard fans dried out from being outside in the Friday night elements, while those listening on the radio stayed tried to stay dry under shelter.

Region 3AA has turned upside down; check the standings

What happened in Region 3AA last week?
What a Friday night! Where do we go from here?
Look at the standings after one week: Jefferson County 1-0 (OK, not upside down); Harlem 1-0; Metter 1-0; East Laurens 0-0; Dublin 0-1; SCHS 0-1; and Swainsboro 0-1. Three of the favored playoff teams are at the bottom. Is that upside down or what?
One thing that happened is for sure, I don’t have a clue about anything relative to this region do I? I have been exposed. Am I a fraud? Whatever the case, there is certainly no punditry here. The facts bear that out.

Jefferson County’s Warriors in Sylvania for region opener

Looking to extend their current winning streak to three games and end a two-game losing streak at the hands Screven County’s now sixth-ranked Gamecocks, the powerhouse Jefferson County Warriors will invade Kelly Memorial Stadium this Friday, Sept. 25, for the Region 3AA opener for each team.

Was speed the difference?

Strap it on, whoop it up; 3AA play begins in earnest

So far the ride has been smooth and easy with very, very few bumps.
In fact, I can really think of but one real bump in the road so far. The drive is about to get a little tougher.
But, while the drive so far has been all about practice; about getting to this point ready to go with a full tank of gas and plenty of experience, Friday night the drive gets serious.
Now the destination is the postseason football playoffs and maybe a repeat as region champ.
Looking into the numbers (remember that numbers can be deceptive) this drive is going to be very, very bumpy.
