It's coming to an end

It seems like just yesterday that we in The Star's sports department started working on the football preview sections.


I don't know what it is (maybe it's because I'm sitting in a different chair), but this football season has flown past my eyes at a blinding rate. Today the Class 1A football season will come to a close with our own TC Central in the finals against Sweet Water.

Clay County will play the next-to-last high school football game, when the Panthers take on Cordova.

In Friday's Star, we'll bring you all kinds of coverage from the TCC game. And we'll also continue the buildup to Clay County's (what seems like annual) state title game appearance.

In the next day or so, we're taking a look at something at something most people don't put enough thought behind with Clay County and its success: the coaching staff. It's a group that has been together for quite a long time.

And if you don't think that counts for something, think again.

On a non-football note, I'm heading to Talladega today at lunchtime when the good folks at the International Motorsports Hall of Fame will announce their 2008 Hall of Fame class. I have no idea who it will be, but I can tell you this --- they'll be some retired folks.
