    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.

  • 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.

  • The err of entitlement: fans...

    When we watch sports, we always want to believe the righteous shall triumph over the corrupt and that good will always conquer evil. We watch in the hopes of watching the teams and athletes whose arrogance is the bane of our existence will get their come-uppance, somewhere, some-how. After all, we like to tell our children that bullies never prosper, right?

    Unfortunately, real sports seldom ever have the feel-good narrative we crave.
