R-S Central (16-6, 6-2) has two games left in the regular season as they play East Gaston and Chase. Should Central win twice, they are the Southwestern 2A Conference Champs and make the playoffs as they likely 1 seed in conference. They own the tiebreaker over Shelby as they have beat the Golden Lions twice this season.

"During our many years together we have said countless goodbyes to one another. Every working day we would wish each other a good day, followed with a kiss, before we each went our separate way. Over time, you had many business trips, some were overnight and others as long as two weeks in length, but, as we said goodbye, we knew we parted in love, secure in the knowledge that we would always be reunited after a short time apart. Our love for one another sustained us and we knew those goodbyes were temporary. We would see one another again and be one in mind and heart.
Now, however, you are taking a very long journey, one where I cannot accompany you. You are taking a trip accompanied by the disease of Alzheimer's. Neither of us know how long this trip will last or the exact time frame we are working within."
