Nathan Wehunt always has believed off-season work is what gets high school football teams where they need to be, “then the fall will take care of itself.”
After serving as Cherokee County’s defensive coordinator, including for the Warriors 2009 Class 4A state championship season, Wehunt certainly knows success. However, when he was hired to take over Ohatchee’s head coaching job only six days before the Indians’ 2012 spring game against Weaver, he faced immediate challenges.
It’s easy to trash Johnny Manziel after the off-season he’s had since becoming the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy. Off-field headlines have many sizing him up as a one-hit wonder.

Sam Cain knew going into the season Jacksonville had a special team, which wound up going 8-0 against Calhoun County teams and making the quarterfinals of the Class 1A-4A state playoffs.

LeBron James led a title-saving charge, and now his crown will be on the line one more time in Game 7.

Zack Wheeler lived up the hype in his major league debut, pitching six scoreless innings to lead the New York Mets to a 6-1 victory over the first-place Atlanta Braves and a doubleheader sweep on Tuesday.
Dillon Gee pitched brilliantly until Freddie Freeman hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning, giving the Atlanta Braves a stunning 2-1 victory over the New York Mets on Monday night in a game delayed nearly four hours by rain.
Jacksonville High girls soccer coach Sam Cain noticed future star Sharon Osterbind at a camp while she was in elementary school and knew then he wanted to coach her.
Cain said that at the time, Osterbind clearly had talent and passion for the game. About a decade later, that hasn’t changed.
