    The 2-2 Braves use “kind of a pistol look” on offense, said Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson. “Sometimes they’ll have three receivers on one side and sometimes double receivers on both sides - a lot of spread stuff.”
    Those receivers are usually decoys, though, as the Braves run the ball 70 percent of the time.

  • Small rocks making TC life a little nicer




    Rocks ...


    We skip them across ponds and occasionally throw them when angry. As kids we might collect them but as adults, we pretty much ignore them.

    Until now.

    A movement is afoot to turn the everyday stones we step over or relegate to our driveways and landscaping into works of inspirational art.

    The messages, painted in craft paint, spray paint, Sharpies and even fingernail polish, are as uplifting as they are beautiful.

    “Be happy.”
