They call them "trap games." A non-traditional opponent on the football schedule, and also with extenuating circumstances, played just before a battle with a long-time rival. For Chester County High School, the trap was a 90-mile plus bus ride to play Obion County Central, on the slate of games just ahead of a conflict with rival Lexington. Additionally, the CCHS team was stunned to learn that star running back Tyler Dysart had been declared ineligible and two victories stripped from the Eagles' record. No problem. CCHS kicked on-sides to start the game and recovered the kick. It took only a few plays to put points on the board, and the Eagles were off and running to a 28-7 half-time lead, and 42-21 region victory.

I hope you looked for my column last week, but am sorry you did not find it. I had surgery on my right wrist the Friday before and could not type. It seems that the surgery was a success so far and has done extremely well thanks to prayers and a good doctor.
Hello from Enville! I hope everyone had a wonderful week. It was a hot week, we went to our granddaughter's soccer game and on to our grandson's football game Saturday morning and we almost had a melt down.
