Dribbly ball is in season and schedules are posted all over the place around here. For individual team schedules and links to write-ups, you know where to find them. But if you don't, because you're new or not smart, look over to the right and you'll see a "Schedules/Roster" section. Select your school, then your sport, and wall-ah!
For updated results, schedule changes, etc., I invite you all to help moderate and keep track of these two threads in the forum:
I literally just typed myself into some serious carpel-tunnel syndrome so please appreciate this and help keep it updated. We've slacked off around here the last couple seasons. I say "we" because I have a mouse in my pocket. Really, I just got lazy and busy, at the same time. Yes, that's possible. This year instead of trying to take it all on myself, you guys can help out by posting schedule changes and score updates for me to sort out. Team work! That's what it's all about.
Tonight the Hogo tips off the season as Rye Cove boys and girls travel to Patrick Henry. Good luck Rebels, lets get this Hogo campaign started off with a dub-ya!
Wrestlers, don't get mad at me. I'll be doing some wrestling stuff probably later in the week. Q23 and Fryeburg may be called upon for some assistance in that department.
(and wrestling season, too!)
That was over quicker than expected.
The good thing about being a fan of seven teams, as I am with the Hogo, is that generally I'm never completely disappointed. At least one team will always pull through as the odds are completely in my favor. But, on Friday night the universe had other plans and all six Hogoheegee teams were sent away with L's at the end of their schedules. It's tough, as I love heading to games and Game Casting and meeting you guys at times. This season, unfortunately
Tomorrow night I will be Game Casting all the live action taking place at George Wythe High School at 7PM. Check that, not 7:30 as is usual here in the Hogo, but 7PM! That's Mountain Empire time, they like it a little earlier over there even though the game is to be played in Wytheville. Be sure to follow me on Twitter @HogoOnline for all the news and score updates from around the district and GO HERE at 7PM for the play-by-play action.
It's Wednesday again which means our weekly honors continue here on Hogoheegee.com. This past Friday, every Hogo team closed out its regular season and four did so with victories. Northwood moved to 6-4 for the first time since 2005 led by another strong offensive night for Jason Prater as the Panthers downed Patrick Henry 27-14. Trey Skeens and Elijah Onks combined for 288 yards and 7 touchdowns against rival Rural Retreat to complete a 6-4 campaign of their own for George Wythe. Marion obliterated Abingdon quickly as Trey Crook had a big game throwing the ball, Keith Norris went crazy catching the ball, and Sam Wagner stiffarmed his way through Falcons as Marion topped their old Southwest District foe Abingdon, 52-14. Down in Chilhowie, Justin Jones made extra sure the Warriors brought home that elusive Hogo District Championship by carrying the ball 45 times in a 28-13 win over Holston.
So who did the panel decide earned this week's top honors?
Coming off of a two week hiatus, getting back into the swing of filming was tough on my companion. A few screw-ups but overall not bad. Don't criticize too harshly.
