Ever since Lee County’s intense and exciting win against Coffee County last Friday, everyone has been hyped up about the upcoming game. The Trojans had a tough loss the Friday before but the guys had an outstanding comeback with a win of 23-7. The team has spent many hours preparing for this moment in the season and they played outstandingly throughout the whole game and not once gave in. The Trojan Spirit and determination was without doubt pumping through the whole team’s veins.
This Friday October 18th, @ 7:30 the Trojans are going up against Richmond Hill High School. The fans are ready to watch and the players are even more ready to get out on the field and play. Our very talented Outside Linebacker, Baron Hopson says, “We are really excited for this game man. It’s a big stage and it’s time to do big things.” The guys are ready to go out and play like they know how to play. Magwood and Hopson says that, “We have no doubts. We have faith in our team. Our team always provides us with a great scout book and we are definitely ready for this Friday.”
Hopson says, “Richmond Hill is a great team but I don’t think they match us physically. We definitely have the potential to go out there and win.” Magwood knows, “As long as our defense plays like they know how to play we should be good in the long run.” The Trojans are 100% ready for game day Friday and we all can’t wait to go out and support our boys at the big game!
“Haley is simply a joy to teach. She comes to class daily with a bright and cheery attitude and she is always ready to work. She is eager to participate in class and gives 110% daily.” These are the words Mrs. Edwards used to describe Haley Wells, our recent student of the month. When walking into school, Haley always seems to have a positive attitude and ready to work. She is always nice to others. That is, if they have to same attitude towards her.

McKinzie Mctyiere, Braden Bell, and myself went to the middle school campuses late in January along with Mrs.Mills (school counselor) and delivered speeches to the future ninth grader’s of Lee County and told them what to expect as a freshman and what to prepare for. Proffering the speech was eye-opening not only for the 8th graders but us as well. We did not realize how acute and potent freshman year truly was until we said it aloud.
That being said, the speeches given were well received by the eighth graders and was veritably interactive with the wisecracks and queries asked. I enjoyed performing the speech as did Kinzie and Braden, along with Mrs.Mills. I assume the kids of eighth grade were informed with the right knowledge and any questions they might have had, were resolved by one of us from the ninth grade campus and expectantly were able to determine their classes for 2017 and quite possibly prefer a career pathway.
