  • Farris signs with Carson-Newman...



    JACKSBORO—On Wednesday evening, Bo Farris’ dream came true.

    The Campbell County catcher signed with Carson-Newman University under head coach Tom Griffin.

    “I started going there my freshman year,” Farris said. “They had a catching camp, and that’s when I met Coach Griffin for the first time. We’ve stayed in touch throughout high school, and he’s watched me. He came up here for a visit, and that’s when they offered me.”

  • It's a Miracle!: Humbled in...

    This past week and the last leg of my journey, I had the honor to be a coach and lead a skills clinic in Hodmezovasarhely, which literally means "Beaver Field Market Place."

    The club in Hodmezovasarhely has only been established for three years with an adult team, 11-12 year old team and 13-15 year old team.

    The story of how baseball started in this town is pretty neat. It sure is a God story.

  • Douglas ditched


    JELLICO—After three years as head coach of the Lady Blue Devil basketball team, Nancy Douglas was released from the position on Monday morning.

    Following a slow season, in which Jellico finished with a 3-25 mark, Douglas was told she would not be coaching during the 2013-14 campaign.

    For Athletic Director Danny Oakes, it was a hard decision to make.

  • Campbell County preparing with 7...


    FARRAGUT—Campbell County has started it’s season off with some tough competition.

    The Cougars traveled to Farragut High School on Tuesday morning to face off with the Admirals in the first 7-on-7 scrimmage of the season.

    For the coaches and players, it was a welcome sign to see.

  • Column: #FillDossett

    It worked for the University of Tennessee, so why won’t it work for Campbell County High School?

    The Cougars had played Powell Valley High School in the mid-80s and early 90s, but the team hasn’t played the new version of Cumberland Gap High School.

    However, on Aug. 23, it’s all going to change. Cumberland Gap will come to L. Hope Dossett Stadium to face off in a border battle atmosphere in Campbell County’s first game of the season.

    With such a close new rival, what better way to welcome them than with a full stadium?

    Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.

    ―Alexander Pope

    The last few days have been some of the most challenging days while in the mission field.

    Remember last week when I was talking about expectations? Yea, well I believe I set myself up again to realize that God is the only one that needs to set expectations. He continues to blow me away.
