  • Friends, former teammates now...

    Very rarely has the ‘house divided’ motto been taken so literally, but in the house Alex Matthews and Branden Cresap reside in together, it may become an ironic mantra.

    Matthews returned to Shelby County High School to be the new defensive coordinator for his alma mater, while Cresap recently joined the Collins High School football staff, where he graduated from in 2011, as a quarterbacks’ coach.

  • Back where it all began

    With the beginning of each new sports season coaches and players come and go and new faces are the norm.

    Florence compiled nine hits in the fifth, while Shelbyville logged just seven hits for the entire contest.
