A labor of love A labor of love

Noel Martin can be found almost every night sitting in the sunroom of his home overlooking the Old Hickory Lake and whittling blocks of wood, with his wife of nearly 35 years by his side.

"We practically live on the porch," Noel, a Gallatin native in the rental business, says.

Noel and his wife Patsy have filled their "porch" with pastel colors, giving the sunroom a beach-like atmosphere. Family pictures, a Maltipoo named Honey, Vanderbilt memorabilia and wicker chairs fill the room.

And ducks.

Blue Devils not to be overlooked

Not much has gone right for second year Lebanon Head Coach Sam Harp and his Lebanon Blue Devils in the 2014 season. Lebanon enters Friday night's contest with Gallatin winless on the year, (0-6, 0-3 9-AAA) and has yielded 131 points to their last two opponents.

Last week, the Blue Devils lost 69-6 to the ninth-ranked Cookeville Cavaliers. Lebanon's only score came on running back Taye Davis's 80-yard kickoff return.

Bison look to bounce back

Two teams will be fighting for their playoff lives this Friday night when Station Camp hosts Wilson Central. Both teams are 1-2 in the district and in desperate need of a win if they hope to keep playing in the post-season.

Station Camp is coming off a big loss to Pearl Cohn. The 58 points they allowed the Firebirds is the most they have given up in a game since the school opened its doors in 2002. Interestingly enough, in the win over Lebanon the week before, the Bison scored 62 points, the most in school history.

Banks statement; Wave cash in on Dorian's big night

On homecoming at Calvin Short Field last Friday night, junior Dorian Banks rushed for 162 yards and the Gallatin Green Wave avenged last year's one-point loss to the Trousdale County Yellow Jackets. Banks scored two touchdowns on just nine carries, including an 89-yard burst in the fourth quarter, to seal the game, 27-9.

"We had some success running the ball," Gallatin Head Coach Mark Williams said. "We made some plays offensively when we needed to. This was a good win for us tonight."

Firebirds' big plays too much for Bison

Firebirds' big plays too much for Bison

A year ago, the Pearl Cohn Firebirds spoiled Station Camp's homecoming by handing the Bison a 49-28 loss. Pearl Cohn converted several big plays in the win.

Fast forward to the 2014 meeting and it seems very little has changed. Pearl Cohn entered Friday night's contest averaging 55.4 points per outing and they showcased their high-powered attack once again in a 58-17 win over the visiting Bison.
