  • Rockets manhandle Southern, 55-0

    The SCHS football team’s victory over Southern on Friday night was a lot like a train ride: The start was slow, but once the Rockets’ started rolling, there was not stopping them.

  • EARLIER: SCHS-Southern? Trap game?

    It’s staring them straight in the eyes, and some may not even realize it.

    This could be the most difficult Friday night – not necessarily the most difficult opponent – of the season, but without a closer look, most might miss it.

    The team is feeling good after whipping a top-10 opponent last week and asserting itself into the heart of District 4 race.

    And now in limps Southern (1-7), the same set of Trojans that have failed to score in the last two games, falling a combined 90-0 to Fern Creek and Male.

    But they've seen that achieving grin on old school Nintendo box art. They've heard his stuttering football commentary, and they've played his video game - for the last 20 years.

  • Marshall takes coach's mentality from court to sideline

    On the court, Charlotte Marshall always played like a coach – barking at her teammates, pointing them to the right spots on the floor.

    Even as a high school player at Shelby County, it appeared evident that Marshall would wind up pacing the sideline. Former SCHS girls’ coach Sally Zimmerman always said she hoped that Marshall would go into coaching.
