  • Attitude is everything

    By Bailey Foxworth

    Sports are physically demanding.
    Well, duh.
    As someone who plays two sports at the college level, I’m practically a connoisseur of the physical demands of sport. I practice two to three times a day and compete almost every weekend. I’ve had my fair share of practices in extreme heat and the cold, injuries and days when I’ve had to give it my all when I’ve had no gas left in the tank.

  • Finding a way to participate in...

    Having, according to the doctor, a “very complicated” break in my upper left arm and being advised to “stay away from groups of people” my summer has been less than spectacular!
    Wouldn’t you think if you broke most anything back in April you’d be OK by Sept. 1 to participate in our 2015 dove opener?
    So, when I went back to the doctor in August and got told, “Come back in October and we’ll see how it’s coming along,” I was bummed out!

    The Marion County Knights hosted the Elizabethtown Panthers in the home opener on Aug. 28.  
    The Knights struggled out of the gate, and could not get much going as they fell to the Panthers, 53-6. After the game, Knights Coach Corey Crume said his team is still attempting to figure things out.

  • One plus one equals one

    The math geeks out there are probably cringing at this if they’re reading this. One plus one equals one!
    While it doesn’t in the math world, if you’re in the sports world, one plus one does indeed equal one.

  • Soccer: Knights have rough week...

    “It was just a frustrating match,” Knights Coach Greg Conley said. “We were outplayed, outpossessed, and outshot.”

  • Diving deep, getting into a good...

    I read a lot of outdoor themed magazines and books for several reasons. Mostly it’s for pure enjoyment. I can imagine myself hunting mountain goat, elk, bear, deer or anything else the story centers on. While I consider it a gift, a lot of people consider my ability to mentally insert myself into a story just a little strange.
    As a result of inserting myself deeply into a story, I often wonder if I actually did some of the things I wrote about. Or, maybe I’m just living someone else’s adventure. Then again, it could be simple plagiarism.
