    One Joe Thomas Sr. is no exception to this cliché. At 55, he took the field for the South Carolina State Bulldogs in their game against the Savannah State Tigers on Saturday in the first quarter, and in gaining three yards on his first carry, is now believed to be the oldest college football player to see game action in a Division l football game.

  • Woods and Waters: Spend Black...

    Here come the holidays - and most hunting seasons are open. Between the available hunting and fishing it’s sorta hard sometimes to make up your mind on what to do!
    Being retired, I have more time to enjoy my outdoor addictions. Those who have jobs know all about the overload. By the time most work schedules are over it’s too close to dark to hunt anything. Same for fishing. You’re forced to cram in as much as possible on weekends and holidays. Of course, with a family, even those days are limited.

    "Over the past year he has gone from somebody nobody knew with low major recruitment to a high level top 50 player in the class," said Zach Ferrell, Alexander's coach at Hamilton Heights. "His size for a point guard is awesome. He has a great work ethic and knows hows to treat teammates. He's a great person."
