  • GIRLS BASKETBALL PREVIEW: Eighth...

    Don’t be surprised if the Eighth Region earns the nickname “The Crazy Eight” this season.

    “I think on any given night, any of us can beat anybody,” Collins Coach Phillip Conder said. Here’s a closer look:

  • EARLIER: Titans face Western...

    As if facing off against a Top 10 team wasn't hard enough, the Collins football team will do so without one of its biggest playmakers Friday night.

    Senior wide receiver/free safety Ben Axline has a torn anterior cruciate ligament and will miss the Titans' Class AAAA quarterfinal, Region 2 title game against visiting Western. Axline suffered the injury in Collins' second-round playoff win over Fairdale last week.

    "It's one of those unfortunate things that happen in sports," Titans Coach Jerry Lucas said.

  • EARLIER: O-line big reason for...

    One of Jerry Lucas' biggest concerns entering his first season as the head coach of the Collins football team was up front.

    That's because he had absolutely zero starting, and barely any varsity, experience on the offensive line.

    Fast forward a few months and Lucas has no distress. In fact, he couldn't be happier.

    "They have just been phenomenal all season," he said recently.

  • Class AAAA football playoffs:...

    Instead of revenge, the Collins football team gets a rerun of sorts tonight.

    Many, if not all, of the Titans wanted a second (-round) date with Marion County, the only team to beat them this season, in the Class AAAA playoffs.

  • EARLIER: Brooks' five TDs...

    When the final buzzer sounded Friday night all Michael Brooks could do was take a knee.

    The Collins High School junior was exhausted after leading the Titans to a 42-32 victory over Fairdale in the second round of the Class AAAA state playoffs. Brooks rushed for five touchdowns - all on short runs; recorded seven tackles and caused, and recovered, a fumble as Collins (11-1) won its ninth straight game.

    Shelby County sophomore Taylor Webb wasn’t too far behind in fifth-place (20:02.83).
