High School football kicks off with it’s first scheduled practice around the state for all schools on August 1st. I know it‘s a little early, but I thought why not preview both conferences that affect Rutherford County.
The South Mountain Athletic Conference is a two-tier conference this season whether you like it or not. One through four and five through nine should be in a heated battle all year long. I wish I could pick R-S, Chase and East Rutherford among the top, but this is what I honestly foresee.

Rain is expected for today. I’ve been hearing these words almost every day for the past two months. June was one of the wettest months in our history and July has followed suit. During one stretch it rained for five straight days. I went to church during that time and they were only letting us in two by two – male and female. I am having to mow my grass about every five days; between the showers. I know there will be some good results that will come from all this rain. The crops look really healthy. The corn and bean fields that I have witnessed have looked pristine. Many oak trees will flourish with acorns.
