Though the Richard Hardy Hawks had to settle for runner up in the district 6A championship game, they were well represented in the coach’s choice all-district team as Allan Wynne, Simon Klompein and Aaron Robinson were all recognized for their season contributions.

Other area teams also had representatives for the coveted selections. Marion County High School saw Kane Hale and Isaiah Sampson selected to the ceremonial team. This made a nice night for the Warriors as they had earlier in the evening defeated Sale Creek to finish the the district in third place going into regionals.

South Pittsburg Pirates would also have a couple of players recognized as Jabrale Ford and Hogan Holland would receive the nod from the district coaches.

Congratulations to all the team’s and individual awards that were awarded Tuesday night.

New Whitwell Tiger football head coach: Randall Boldin

Whitwell High School didn’t have to look very far for their new head football coach. Defensive coordinator Randall Boldin was recently announced as the head coach after Tracy Malone resigned earlier to pursue another line of work. Speaking with Boldin, we found out what makes him get up in the morning…and it’s not football (though it appears to be a close second). Be sure and check out our full interview in the 2/28 Jasper Journal.

Tigers fall to South Pittsburg Pirates

0

The South Pittsburg Pirates traveled to Whitwell High School on Friday, October 2 for the 84th meeting between the two schools. With the all-time record being dominated by the Pirates 69-12-2, the Tigers entered the game with the hope of ending South Pittsburg’s 24 year victory streak. The first quarter of play began with a South Pittsburg possession, resulting in a touchdown by Dylan McQueen. After E.J. Cagle’s PAT, the score became 7-0 Pirates, early in the first. Whitwell’s first drive ended abruptly with an interception made by South Pittsburg’s Sawyer Kelley, which started a drive that resulted in another touchdown for the Pirates. After another score by McQueen, Whitwell’s Austin Nunley kicked a solid 43-yard field goal for the Tigers, making the score 21-3 at the end of the first quarter. The second quarter was once again dominated by the Pirates, who scored two touchdowns to add to their score. At the end of the half, the score was 37-3. During half-time, the seniors at Whitwell High School were recognized and introduced. The second half of play was overseen by a running clock, although time went fast, it wasn’t fast enough to keep Whitwell from putting points on the board. The half started with a Tiger possession, once again ended with a Pirate interception and score. The Tigers then started to increase their momentum with a five yard run by Trace Condra for a touchdown, followed by some scores from Hudson Petty. South Pittsburg also scored twice in the second half, making the final score 50-24 from Vernon Holtcamp Field. On this Friday night, a special fan was recognized for the Tigers. Allen Holloway received the 2016 Tiger Award for all of his outstanding support and hard work for Tiger football.
