Congrats to George Wythe's football team who survive another week of playoff football with their unexpected triumph over Radford!

Well, we didn't get the #hogosweep we wanted last Friday but we did get 50% of our teams through to the next round.  It's not a passing grade but we'll take what we can get.  Bland County and Patrick Henry lit up the scoreboard down in Emory last Friday.  I got to see first hand one of the craziest games I've been to in a long, long time.  Northwood and Eric "Touch" Doane got off to a hot start over in Russell County but some late mistakes came back to haunt the Panthers.  Both Patrick Henry and Northwood had very solid seasons and vaulted above expectations many had coming into the year.  

Rural Retreat pounded what can no longer be referred to as an upstart Auburn program.  The Eagles are a good program now that competes regular with their Three Rivers gauntlet. Rural Retreat deserves credit for dispatching them in the first round.  George Wythe took on Twin Springs, a team that had beaten a couple of Hogo teams already this year.  The Maroons had no problems keeping the Titans out of the endzone en route to a first round win.

So who plays this week and what do the old, dusty history books have to say about it?


2012-Current (Matte finish)



It finally happened.  I finally went to a game that had a memorable ending.  It's been a while for me.  I couldn't tell you the last time I went to a game that was supposed to be close and actually ended that way.  Most of the time there's hype and then I show up and the game is decided before halftime.

Last Friday started out that way for me.  George Wythe pulled ahead 21-0 in the first half and a lady bullied me out of the way with her chair so she could sit on the side of the hill. There was plenty more hill, lady!  Needless to say, my experience for the first half of the game in Wytheville last week was subpar.  Then I realized that it depends on where I stand.  See, I came in on the George Wythe side and just kind of stayed over there for the first half because that's really close to the hot dogs.  But after getting the rub by some lady who had no respect for my existence I decided to check out Rural Retreat's side.  There was a guy yelling obscenities and wandering around shouting anything and everything he had ever heard about football so I decided to stand beside him because I like to be entertained and being able to hear anything is overrated.  As it would turn out, Rural Retreat then scored 22 straight points to take a brief lead.  Be careful where you make me sit when I come to games, I'm a touchdown magnet.

It was a tale of two halves though and Rural Retreat almost pulled off the most amazing comeback I've ever witnessed.  That is to say, the last time there was a giant comeback I attended, I left at halftime and Chilhowie came back to defeat Rural Retreat.  I digress.

But I stayed for this one and I'm thankful I did.  It was a great ending to a great regular season in the Hogo.

Deacon "Laser" Beamer led the champion Roons through the air, completing 10 of 17 passes for 135 yards and one touchdown run.  Opposite of him was Wyatt "Watch Out" Sowers who was a tripped up two point conversion away from giving his Indians a late lead.  Sowers finished the night completing 9 of 18 passes for 135 yards, a passing touchdown and a rushing touchdown after gaining fifty ground yards on the night.

There was another tightly contested game in the Hogo between Northwood and Patrick Henry.  The Rebels were led on the ground by Dakota "Hump-Daddy" Humphrey, of course.  The Humphreak amassed 257 yards on 32 carries and found the endzone once.  His cohort, Andy Cuddy, supplied 103 ground yards and two touchdowns in the 36-30 victory.  The Panthers were led by Eric Doane who supplied 97 ground yards and completed 9 of his 19 pass attempts for 214 yards.  He also tossed a pair of touchdowns to receiver Brendan Turley.

Down in Chilhowie, Holston and the Warriors were trying to stay out of sole possession of last place.  Chilhowie came out victorious and avenged last season's final regular season defeat to the Cavs.  Greg Sanchez poured on 174 yards on 16 carries while Cameron Kestner, who has played a multitude of positions this season, found himself at running back and gained 246 yards on just 12 carries.  He tacked on four touchdowns as well to lead Chilhowie to the 33-14 win.

All that said, how did the panel choose in the last Player of the Week segment this season?


The playoffs are finally upon us!  The Hogo was fortunate enough to have four teams qualify and none of them are sympathy contenders either.  Some years teams make the playoffs that have no business seeing the postseason but you can't say that about any of the four that qualified from our Hogo collective.

Chilhowie, Marion, and Holston concluded their seasons with 2, 1, and 0 wins respectively but they fought the whole way.  There's a lot to be said about that. All three programs expect to be better next season and build off of what they were able to learn from this season.



Northwood (6-4) Honaker (7-3)
