Over the last two weeks, Friday nights filled with fantastic football games were overshadowed by some strong disagreement of calls. A week after Dadeville thought it made a game-winning field goal at the last second, Wetumpka did not get the benefit of a flag thrown when a deep ball fell incomplete late in the fourth quarter of a one-point game.

We're always interested in hearing about news in our community. Let us know what's going on!

Over the weekend, Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger — the most accomplished quarterback of the 2000s who isn’t named Tom Brady — went down for the season with an elbow tear, killing any hope of a Steelers Super Bowl for 2019.

The No. 8 Auburn Tigers (3-0) will travel to College Station, Texas, this weekend and take on the No. 17 Texas A&M Aggies (2-1). It will be the eighth meeting between the two teams since A&M joined the conference in 2012.

Antonio Brown has been in the new cycle constantly for the past month and periodically over the past year for his antics on and off the football field. He has committed acts of selfishness whether it consists of temper tantrums, frostbite on his feet or calling out coaches and teammates on s…

The Auburn Tigers are 2-0 on the season and ranked No. 8 in the country by the Associated Press. They are also one of only six teams in the nation with a quality win over a top-25 opponent. 

As a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan, it gives me physical pain talking about the Dallas Cowboys, mainly from gritting my teeth when I have to use their name or the heartbreak they cause me once — sometimes twice — a year. However, my job is to be unbiased when it comes to the NFL and I am a…

Would You Rather...

Would you rather be a regular scorer and contributor or be someone who comes off the bench for one big moment of glory?

The lexicon of sports is full of wonderfully awful clichés like: “We have to play them one game at a time,” and “We must win the line of scrimmage” and “That guy really gives 110%.” 

As much as I love college football Saturdays, there are times during the offseason where I feel like the hype is just a little too much. I do not need to read an article or watch a show every day on schedule releases, recruits, Heisman potential, new coaches, etc.

Former Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham has continued to wow both general managers and fans alike. The former Tiger can easily be forgotten with all the first-round drama at the quarterback position that happened in April, but once Stidham stepped on the field teams had to be scratching th…

After pining longingly all summer for football to return, what were we treated to? A Florida-Miami game that had enough bad plays to discredit Broadway. 

One of my favorite things about my job is getting to do things I normally wouldn’t do and learn things I often know nothing about. So when Lake magazine editor Betsy Iler asked me to take an Aqua Stand Up class for an article, I was eager to check it out.

With just a few days until college football’s official 2019 kickoff, I now present to you my final, set-in-stone, for-real-this-time predictions. Feel free to use these picks at your local gambling establishment. You can thank me later. 

The best time of year is upon us with high school and college football starting this week and the NFL preseason underway. With a new season comes new expectations and new household names but who should you draft to your NFL fantasy team?

As you know, the football season is just around the corner with high school and college regular season games beginning next week. However, for one final time this summer, I’m here to talk about what to pay attention to across the pond with the football season underway.

Recently, I pointed out how Major League Baseball has agreed to let the Tampa Bay Rays explore playing some of their home games north of the border, bringing baseball back to Montreal for the first time in 15 years.

The clock is ticking and we are now only 408 hours (give or take depending on what time you’re actually reading this) away from Auburn’s long-awaited Duck-hunting trip in the state of Texas.

The Auburn Tigers will scrimmage for the first time during preseason camp Thursday and all eyes will be on the quarterback position. Redshirt freshman Joey Gatewood and true freshman Bo Nix are currently in a heated battle for the coveted spot which, as of right now, is too close to call.

Last week I wrote about how student-athletes are putting in work year-round for just a few short months of actual play. I wrote about how important that offseason work was for building team chemistry, getting bigger, stronger and faster and bonding as one unit.

College football teams will finally begin practicing this week and not a moment too soon. As of next Monday, we all should be through the silly-season of miscellaneous polls, rankings and nonsensical quotes turned bulletin board material.

This is where the fun really begins. In just over a week, local teams will hit the fields for their first fall practices, and in just under a month, it’s officially game time.

With just one week to go until the Major League Baseball trade deadline, there are plenty of teams in both leagues with eyes on a spot in the postseason this October. Executives and coaching staffs will be working together to find the right piece to help their team get over the hump.

In a recent column, I mentioned how, over the past nearly two years, the United States men’s national soccer team has been attempting to turn the ship around since missing the 2018 FIFA World Cup. This push has paid some dividends since, as the men’s national team had a relatively strong sho…

All 14 SEC head coaches and 42 different representatives (three from each school) invaded the Hyatt Regency in Hoover last week to take part in the spectacle known as SEC Media Days.

Part of the charm of going to a professional sporting event is watching the insane antics of the team mascot. With so many crazy and unique mascots out there, I decided to put together a list of what I felt are among the best North American sports mascots. For this list, I stuck with profess…

The 23rd annual AHSAA summer conference is upon us this week as administrators, coaches and players converge in Montgomery for practices, games and other events across nine different sports. Eight of those sports focus on upcoming seniors, giving them an extra opportunity for exposure to col…

Ever since the final whistle of Sunday’s World Cup final, I don’t think I have stopped being in a good mood. Despite the U.S. men’s soccer team losing to Mexico in the Gold Cup final that same night, the feeling of seeing the women’s national team win back-to-back world titles is something t…

I can still remember that moment as a little kid in El Paso, Texas. We took the field against our opponents, the Red Raiders, a team from a different league. As I chased down a Red Raider who was looking to score, I noticed something unusual — it was a girl. She eventually passed the ball to…
