Sports news for Screven County and surrounding areas.

Duncan’s Gamecocks make a return to the Patriots’ Battlefield

Friday night Ron Duncan’s Screven County football Gamecocks return to Augusta and Westside High School’s football stadium The Battlefield for the first time since Oct. 18, 2013. On that night nearly two years ago, a seeming crime was committed in the name of football by our Roosters.
The crime you ask? Impersonating a football team I say.

SCHS routs Islanders 57-6 in 2015 opener

With their first six possession totaling a mere 26 plays, the home-standing Screven County Gamecocks of Ron Duncan nevertheless scored on all six as they ran to a 41-0 halftime lead en route to a 57-6 rout of the visiting St. John’s, S.C., Islanders.
Opening their 2015 season in grand fashion, the Roosters will have this week off as they prepare for the AAA Westside Patriots at The Battlefield in Augusta on Sept. 4.
As the defending Region 3AA champion, the Gamecocks made very short work of South Carolina’s defending Region VI A champion and 10th-ranked Islanders.

SCHS softball gets well, wins three straight

After a slow start their opening week, the SCHS Lady Gamecock softball team of Billy Pollock has won three straight to even their record at 3-3 heading into this Aug. 27 afternoon’s Region 3AA opener with Jefferson County at the local field starting at 5:00.
Next week the Red and White will travel to 3AA opponent Dublin on Tuesday, then host AAAAA South Effingham and region foe Swainsboro on Wednesday, Sept. 2, and Thursday, Sept. 3, respectively.

The Gridiron Gamecocks ‘survive’ season opener

The worry -- which I don’t think was ever really on anyone’s mind -- never materialized.
From the outset, the red-hot Gamecocks were never threatened last Friday in their season opening win over the visiting St. John’s Islanders. The final score of 57-6 was not nearly what it could have been. In fact the 65-year-old team record of 72 points in a game could easily have been surpassed. That was certainly no reason to allow that.

Screven County fans anxiously awaiting the upcoming kickoff

Football is not the only game on the SCHS agenda this fall; there are three other sports with a full schedule on tap.
Softball already has played four games; the first cross country meet is Sept. 3; and the first cheer competition is Sept. 19.
Despite all of the activity among the sports of those clad in the Red and White in the fall of 2015, one thing is for certain, the most anticipated event is Friday night’s kickoff against the visiting St. John’s, S.C., Islanders.

Lady Gamecocks drop opening pair of games

Scoring a combined two runs in their first two games, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks fell to homestanding Southeast Bulloch 5-1 on Monday and homestanding South Effingham 9-1 on Tuesday.
After a game in Vidalia Wednesday after the Sylvania Telephone press deadline, the Red and White will go to Springfield on Aug. 18 before participating in Burke County’s Diamond Day on Aug. 22.
The team will not be at home until Burke County comes here on Aug. 25.
Futility with runners on base was the crucial point in the season opener against AAA SEB.

GHSA has big meetings on schedule

Tomorrow night local eyes will look toward Effingham County and the preseason scrimmage that kicks off the 2015 season, a season that good, bad, or otherwise, is already greatly anticipated.
That scrimmage is for the football season that is upon us, but Sunday and Monday there are some really big GHSA meetings that may well have great impact upon the athletic calendars of the 2016-17 and 2017-18 campaigns.
The scrimmage is what it is, a tune up, but, again, the GHSA meetings are, well, important. Among the two most noteworthy things are reclassification and tennis.

Lady Gamecock softball opens Aug. 10

With a couple of key positions to fill, the 2015 Lady Gamecock softball team will open with three consecutive road games in three days beginning on Monday with a trip to Brooklet to face the Lady Jackets of Southeast Bulloch.
On Tuesday, the team will face host South Effingham before a trip to Vidalia on Wednesday.
The Red and White will not play at home until Aug. 25.

Effingham scrimmage a week away; heat cancels contact

The wait will soon be over.
Football contact drills at SCHS were supposed to crank up on Tuesday, however, the contact did not commence as the heat index was above the limit allowed by the GHSA for a practice in full pads.
With more of the same, indices over 100, predicted for this week, the first day of contact may be further delayed. The team did go though its two-hour limit in helmets and shoulder pads.

Boosters getting their SCHS football seats now

The Screven County Athletic Booster Club’s annual membership drive continues.
The club’s meetings are the first Monday of each month at 7 p.m. Films from the previous Friday night football games are shown every Monday at 7 p.m. All meetings/films viewings are in the high school health room, which is past the weight room.  
Members also are invited on Fridays of football home games at noon at R&D’s Restaurant to have lunch with the fall season athletes of cheerleading, softball, cross country and football.

Countdown to kickoff just keeps getting closer

For at least the third week in a row, I am opening some type of story with a countdown. Sorry to be so redundant.
We are now two weeks and a day from the trip to Springfield and the season-opening football scrimmage with the Rebels of Effingham County on Aug. 14. More importantly, we are but three weeks and a day away from the regular-season opener at Kelly Memorial Stadium when we host the Islanders of St. John’s Island, S.C., on Aug. 21.
Big football dates are that close and we have not yet donned the full pads and will not until next Tuesday.

‘Cooter’ at speedway for July 25 ‘Rebel Yell’

Ben Jones, who played “Cooter” on “The Dukes of Hazzard,” was confirmed Wednesday as the grand marshal for the 16th annual “Rebel Yell” at the Screven Motorsports Complex on July 25.
Jones will meet with fans and deliver a message on all four PA systems at the complex between Sylvania and Newington on Highway 21.
His message will in part be about the Confederate flag and how recently the “The Dukes of Hazzard” has been taken off television because of the flag being painted on the General Lee that was driven during the series.

Duncan extremely pleased with Gamecocks’ Mercer mini-camp

With the opening Effingham County scrimmage now four weeks and a day away, SCHS Gamecock head football coach Ron Duncan expressed pleasure after his team’s trip to a three-day “mini-camp” at Mercer University last week.
The intensity of preseason work continued to increase this week as the team went to Effingham County for passing league contests with, among others, the Rebels, Jenkins of Savannah, and Groves.
Tuesday the 21st will find Effingham County here for passing before the team goes to Burke County for an “uppers camp” (including shoulder pads) on July 23.

‘The Snake’ Stabler joins 'The Dream' in pro sports heaven

Within less than a month of each other, two of my all-time favorite professional athletes passed.
On June 11, Virgil Riley Rummels Jr., much better known as Dusty Rhodes, died and on July 8, just last week, Kenneth Michael Stabler, known to many as “The Snake,” died. Born two months apart in 1945, both were only 69.

The boosters will only meet for home football games this year.

Mite boys sub-district tourney begins June 18

The Screven County Recreation Department will host several Georgia Recreation & Park Association baseball tournaments this summer, including one that starts this evening.
From June 18-20, the Mite Boys (10 & Under) Sub-District Tournament will be played at the SCRD Complex. Two early round games are on tap tonight with Reidsville against Jenkins County #1 at 6 p.m. and Glennville versus Jenkins County #2 at 7:30 p.m.

Hawkins verbally commits to GSU Eagles

Saying “it feels like the place for me,” the reigning Region 3AA Player of the Year and rising SCHS Gamecock senior Jermany Hawkins has verbally committed to play for Head Coach Willie Fritz and the Georgia Southern Eagles in the fall of 2016.
“It felt like the place for me,” said Hawkins. “My family and friends will be close so they can see me play. I like the program … how the coaches treat the players -- like another Screven County.”
In recent weeks, with a plethora of colleges making offers, Hawkins narrowed his final choices to Marshall, Troy, and GSU.
