High School Football
Congratulations to the Buffalo Gap High School football team and their fans in SWAC Land. The Bisons defeated my neighboring Clintwood 28 - 19 to win their first State Football Championship. Clintwood surprised us all by defeating a heavily favored JI Burton team to advance in state. Saturday the Bisons Pickle Nuckols ran all over the Greenwave gaining over 200 yards. That is impressive. On a good note for Clintwood - They return all but four starters next season.
Gate City vs Gretna - Gretna who?
They say Gate City is where football pride began in SWVA. No one told Gretna.
According to Miller, the entire Gretna team drew extra inspiration Saturday from a large banner in the Gate City stands which read "Gretna Who."
"We saw that sign when we first came on the field," Miller said. "That was like a spark that really got us going."(Read it All)
Gretna 52 Gate City 0. Heh. I never liked that old smart ass sign stuff.
