  • Athletic training growing in...

    Athletic training conjures different images in everyones’ minds.

    Most everyone shares the idea that athletic trainers are the people that wrap ankles for sports teams and stand on the sidelines during football games with water bottles.

    Some of this is still true, but in the 21st century, there is so much more to athletic training.

    According to Chip Ladd and Jon Beach of Star Physical Therapy in Midtown, there is a lot that goes into helping athletes and it all starts with the athletic trainer.

  • Are you ready for some football?

    Although the heat and humidity may trick you and have you thinking summer is here to stay, you would be wrong.

    Summer’s end is fast approaching and fall is coming.

    With fall comes football.

    For me, a transplant from the West Virginia and Kentucky border, it’s going to be exciting to experience my first Tennessee football season.

    I don’t think it will be drastically different. After all, football knocked baseball out of the coveted “America’s game” spot a long, long, time ago. So football is football.

  • New direction for Roane State...

     

    “If it isn’t broke, then don’t fix it” is a cliche to live by in sports. Most coaches and players are content to keep to a routine and not change.

    For Roane State Lady Raider basketball Coach Monica Boles, this isn’t the case. The long time coach shook things up this summer and started a position focused camp for high schol players.

    This is the first time Boles and her program have attempted something different than the normal camps that focus on fundamentals.

  • New lease on life for O. S....

    One year ago, a promising freshman football player at Oliver Springs High School named Lane Lee was poised to make his mark on the gridiron for the Bobcats. Instead, Lee was diagnosed with AML, which stands for Acute Myeloid Leukemia, and was forced to sit out the 2016 football season fighting the battle of his life.
