ADDISON - Bradley Willette is not your typical 14-year-old. The Addison youth stands 6’5” tall and weighs 240. He excels in sports and in the classroom, as an honor student.
Willette has been invited to play in the Elite All American football game that will be played in Las Vegas, Nevada in January. This is an invitational only event through the Diamond Sports Group.
This event will include the “best-of-the-best” from the D1 Savage regional games in an east versus west format.
DOUBLE SPRINGS - What turned out to be the coldest football night so far this season also turned out to be an intense game when Lynn high-stepped over Winston County High for a win in double overtime Friday night, Nov. 1.
The tough and tumble first quarter involving a quarterback sack by Lynn Bear Cruz Cheatham and a WCHS Yellow Jacket interception by James Abbott ended up scoreless. The Bears made a 65-yard drive between first and second quarters to turn the scoreboard bulbs on with a 5-yard play touchdown. Their PAT was no good, leaving it at 6-0.
