    Simply standing next to ‘Big Mike’ is intimidating. For Cumberland Gap’s small running back, he looked like a not-so-gentle giant.

    Standing at 6-foot-2, Mike Rhodes has been one of the most physical players for the LaFollette Owls. As an eighth grader, weighing in at 225 pounds, he’s a force that hard to hold as an offensive line.

    Campbell County did everything right against the Panthers of Powell, taking a 13-6 lead in the half. Defense stood strong for the entire game, giving the Cougars a chance to hit a game winning 32-yard field goal with only 1:19 remaining in regulation.

  • Runnin' Riley Faulkner

    It may have been an unusually cold day on Monday afternoon, but Riley Faulkner stayed hot.

    The third grade runner has run six races this season on the elementary cross country team, and he’s taken the first place finish in all six.

    In Monday’s region meet, Riley Faulkner posted a 5:54, which was good enough to overtake Davis Clem, a fifth grader in the Episcopal School.

  • Eagles keep Egg Bowl trophy

    “This is no longer a game. This is a war.”

    Jacksboro defensive specialist, Jared Ray said it best last Thursday night as the Eagles took on LaFollette in the 12th annual Egg Bowl.

    Jacksboro’s stingy defense managed to stop a quick witted Owl offense in order to take the game, 28-8.

    “He kind of summed it up there,” Eagle head coach Mike Miller said. “If we had one game that the boys wanted to be sure they won, it would be this one. That’s just kids.”
