Saturday afternoon can't get here soon enough for Will Rice and his Camden Military Academy football team. Only then will the Spartans be able to erase the bad memories from last week's 34-28 loss to the Carolina Wildcats.
Their offensive numbers may not be as gaudy and they may not have a nationally ranked recruit, but don't think that the Spring Valley squad which will host Lugoff-Elgin tonight is not dangerous.
How long could tonight's North Central at Indian Land football game last? To hear NC head coach Louis Clyburn tell it, fans could return to the cars with the engines still hot from the drive to the contest.
For several weeks, Camden was missing something. And, it perplexed the Bulldogs' coaching staff.
It was not going to happen on their watch.
Golf, for better or for worse, has turned into a power game. Players grip it and rip it in this era in which thinking one's way around 18 holes has almost become a thing of the past.
Recovering one onside kick in a game is great. You do it twice and you raise some eyebrows. Getting the hat trick draws the ire of the opposing coach. But when they all happen in the final six minutes of the same game on three successive attempts?
This was not the way she and her Lugoff-Elgin volleyball team would have scripted it, but Jessica Mullins and company still have some unfinished business left in front of themselves in this, the final week of the regular season.
Parris Island can be hell on earth for most United States Marine Corps recruits who are sent there for boot camp as they learn the ropes as to what it takes to be a Marine.
BLYTHEWOOD --- On a muggy night in Blythewood, the Westwood Redhawks are who Lugoff-Elgin Demons thought they were: A very good football team.
Like the song says, sometimes "you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone."
HOPKINS --- Don't tell Kendrice Slater he was operating behind a patchwork offensive line. The Camden tailback is having none of that talk.
As he watched his team's defense scrimmage against its offense on Tuesday afternoon, Camden Military Academy head coach Will Rice was concerned about the Spartans' conditioning.
Look at the personnel, not their record.
While those coaches in classes AAA, AA and A whose teams are having rough starts in the non-conference portion of their football schedules look to the conference campaign as a new beginning, for 4A entries, week seven is, well, week seven.
No trick. No treat.
A team which will include Kershaw County School District (KCSD) Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan, KCSD attorneys, Camden High School (CHS) Principal Dan Matthews and CHS head football coach and athletic director Jimmy Neal will appeal the Bulldogs football team's post-season ban before the S.C. High School League (SCHSL) Executive Committee at 2 p.m. Thursday in Columbia.
It was business as usual for the football program at Lugoff-Elgin in the early part of the spring and summer.
