I think we all knew this time would eventually come.  

I started this website 10 years ago.  I remember the very night I got started - I was watching New Year's football with my laptop on my knees trying to figure out how to buy a domain.  I distinctly remember Boise State's trick plays that led to their defining win over Oklahoma as I navigated my way through the back-end of the internet's shaky depths.  The website began and so did a really neat chapter of my life.  I fancied myself an amateur reporter at times and went to tons of sporting events within the district and met a ton of awesome people.  The website slowly grew and before I knew it a coach took interest and sent me an email.  I looked for the email for this post to see if I could cut it in here but unfortunately it was deleted long ago.  Basically Coach Bailey, Northwood's basketball coach at the time, told me he enjoyed the site.  At that time the site was just a bunch of HTML boxes and colors.  Anyone could have done better. I was just the only one doing anything like that for the Hogoheegee.  His words meant a lot to me - "Wow, a coach actually looks at this?".  I figured at that point I had better straighten up and do better - so I did.

Congrats to George Wythe's football team who survive another week of playoff football with their unexpected triumph over Radford!

Well, we didn't get the #hogosweep we wanted last Friday but we did get 50% of our teams through to the next round.  It's not a passing grade but we'll take what we can get.  Bland County and Patrick Henry lit up the scoreboard down in Emory last Friday.  I got to see first hand one of the craziest games I've been to in a long, long time.  Northwood and Eric "Touch" Doane got off to a hot start over in Russell County but some late mistakes came back to haunt the Panthers.  Both Patrick Henry and Northwood had very solid seasons and vaulted above expectations many had coming into the year.  

Rural Retreat pounded what can no longer be referred to as an upstart Auburn program.  The Eagles are a good program now that competes regular with their Three Rivers gauntlet. Rural Retreat deserves credit for dispatching them in the first round.  George Wythe took on Twin Springs, a team that had beaten a couple of Hogo teams already this year.  The Maroons had no problems keeping the Titans out of the endzone en route to a first round win.

So who plays this week and what do the old, dusty history books have to say about it?


2012-Current (Matte finish)



It finally happened.  I finally went to a game that had a memorable ending.  It's been a while for me.  I couldn't tell you the last time I went to a game that was supposed to be close and actually ended that way.  Most of the time there's hype and then I show up and the game is decided before halftime.

Last Friday started out that way for me.  George Wythe pulled ahead 21-0 in the first half and a lady bullied me out of the way with her chair so she could sit on the side of the hill. There was plenty more hill, lady!
