  • GIRLS BASKETBALL PREVIEW:...

    This season will be as much about laying a foundation as it will be about the present for the Shelby County girls’ basketball team.

  • Brooks quarterbacks Titans...

    Michael Brooks has scored 10 touchdowns this football season.

    The Collins High School junior has eight TDs as a running back and two – returns of an interception and a fumble – from his linebacker position.

    But there’s one thing that Brooks says he likes more than a touchdown – making a tackle.

    “It stops the other team from scoring,” he said. “Defense is more important than offense at this point.”

  • Collins' comeback falls...

    Collins’ comeback came up just short Friday night in the Class AAAA football quarterfinals. 

    The Titans nearly made an improbable rally from a 21-point first-quarter deficit, and a 17-point one in the fourth quarter, before falling to Western 31-26 in the Region 2 title tilt at Titans Stadium.

  • Karas ready for state meet

    The first time Caterina Karas competed in a running event, she ended up in tears.

    “It was a track meet...I was last in all three of my events,” Karas recalled earlier this week. “I came home and told my mom I didn’t want to run anymore, I was crying.”

  • 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.
