Dome Day: Wolves ready for early kickoff

BUFORD - T.J. Pridemore admitted that he has a hard time with staying up too late and having to get up early.

Football: Trojans' young guns make big impact

Thomas Sprague had to make a split-second decision. And there was no room for error.

Against Perry last week in the Class AAA state quarterfinals, the North Hall sophomore linebacker was in the end zone, in coverage, when the ball came right in his direction. His first reaction was he wasn't in position for the interception, so he went with his next best option to bat the ball down and prevent a touchdown. It proved to be a very wise decision.
