Saint Xavier Insider- week three

By AvidTiger - This was a tough pill for me to swallow but I have to swallow it. I'm not so much upset that we lost but more so how we lost. I don't know why I expected anything different in the third week, but it was the same song just the third verse. Poor Qb play, poor third down defense, and an over emphasis on passing the ball. Though there were new lyrics in this verse .poor tackling. The rumblings in the stands and from fans I've talked to are not positive; Questions about why X didn't run the ball more? You have to wonder about Browning and how would Glaser have done with this talented team? ... Read More →

Caldwell County 2013 Week 3 Preview

By DreamKiller - Calls 2A #1, Caldwell County, is headed into a matchup of unbeatens at Class 5A Ohio County tonight. For Caldwell County, star quarterback, Elijah Sindelar, has yet to jell with his stable of receivers so far. Much of the load has been carried by the running backs, Jaylen Boyd and JaMichael Ellis, with Boyd doing most of the dirty work. The passing game has been there just enough to open up the running lanes for Boyd. The defense has given up 22 and 20 points in the the 1st 2 weeks, but a lot of that has been in the late going, after the game is way past decided. Running against these Tigers... Read More →

By DragonFire - A Rivalry Game Years in the Making Fans stood on the sidelines loudly yelling their support for their respective teams.

They can create moments that players and fans can never recapture but can always remember. ... Read More →
