  • Vols club Knights in 40-6 victory

    KERSHAW – Andrew Jackson coupled a punishing ground game with two long-scoring plays to whip North Central, 40-6 on Friday night at Volunteer Stadium.

    AJ sophomore Javaris Clyburn rushed for 113 yards and scored three touchdowns to lead the Vols in the 34-point win.

    AJ coach David Moore celebrated his second straight win, as the Vols improved to 2-1.

    “It was an ugly, ugly win, “said Moore.  “I salute Coach Clyburn and his staff. They did an excellent job of getting our offense out of our rhythm.”

  • Warriors' ground attack...

    INDIAN LAND – Indian Land grounded winless Whitmire in a 56-8 rout at the Reservation on Friday night.

    The 3-0 Warriors used a potent ground attack, which cranked out 331 yards on the ground, to post the 48-point victory.

    The Warriors are off to their best start since the 2005 campaign.

    Indian Land, behind the ace rushing tandem of Breyon Williams and Rondreas Truesdale, ignited for a 49-0 halftime lead and cruised to the lopsided win.

  • Bruins ignite, jolt Jackets

    BUFORD – An aroused Lancaster Bruins’ team roared in the second half for a 32-0 win over county rival Buford at Jackets Stadium on Friday night.

    Lancaster forged a 14-0 halftime lead, and took control in the final half to notch its second straight shutout of the Class AA Jackets.

    BHS battled for the better part of the night, but a late third period LHS spurt spelled doom for the host maroon and gold.

  • Rodgers big hitter for AJ

    Andrew Jackson senior defensive end Tyler Rodgers gets his share of hits.

    Rodgers, a stalwart in the Vols’ defense, can shoulder the load.

    Same can be said of Rodgers in the spring when he hit .479 as the Volunteers’ first baseman and reaped all-region honors for the playoff-bound Vols under first-year baseball coach Mike Lucas.

    Rodgers said he sees a similarity between the diamond and gridiron at AJ.

    With BHS up, 24-21, McBee started a 22-play drive with 30 seconds left in the third quarter that kept Buford’s offense on the sideline until the dramatic stand.

    A swarm of Jackets, led by Josh Kennington and DeMarcus Brown, stopped Panthers’ workhorse running back Greg McDonald a yard shy of the end zone to preserve the victory.
