SCHEDULE MONDAY FEBRUARY 11th

Clinton at Powell (WYSH)…Anderson County at Halls.

Before Saturday’s girls’ game between Cosby and Clinton, the Dragons and Lady Dragons of Clinton High School recognized their seniors. Clinton’s girls saluted Nikki Jones, Danyel Joy, Kinley Martin and Abbie Stinnett while the boys gave props to Luke Harrison and Andrew Shoopman.

The brief pregame ceremony also included the presentation of a plaque to yours truly marking the completion of my 20th year as the voice of the basketball Dragons. I just wanted to thank everyone at CHS for the recognition, and to let everyone know that, except for my association with my wife and my child, I am prouder of nothing more in my life than I am my association with the basketball program at Clinton High School.

I have had the privilege of announcing football, basketball and baseball at both Clinton and Anderson County High Schools over the past 20 years, and can say with certainty that one of the reasons my wife Kelly and I made the decision to move and raise our daughter, Carolina, here in this community is the quality of the people we have met through our association with local sports, from the parents to the coaches to the players.

Again, thanks and Go Dragons!
