TJCA Football Will Not Go Undefeated, Conference Play Begins

This coming Friday, conference play begins for the South Mountain Athletic football teams, but first up is Gryphons football.

Unfortunately, Thomas Jefferson doesn’t play as well as they are capable of doing and end up falling for the first time all year in a 34-13 loss in the home opener to Avery (2-1). 

Avery won the field position battle all night with great punts by Tre Jackson and forced Thomas Jefferson to go the length of the field on offense. The Gryphons were down at the end of the third, 27-13, but cut it to 20-13 on Coty Flynn’s run to pay dirt. However, a big run led to one touchdown and another short field in back-to-back possessions allowed the Vikings to pull away.

Outdoor Truths

Outdoor Truths
   It’s beginning to feel a lot like deer season. The temperatures today will range from the mid-sixties to the mid-seventies. Days like these are sure to get me rubbin’ and ruttin’. Even though the season is open in one of my border states, I still don’t get too excited until I can see my breath in the morning. I love the cool, damp air. As a child I struggled at times with asthma but I always remember how good my lungs felt when I took a deep breath of that early morning, fall air.
   I’m such a morning person. You can call me at six a.m. but if you call past ten at night you’re probably going to hear the voice of an unhappy bear that was just wakened from his hibernation.
