    On Saturday, Aug. 25, the Spencer County Stallions traveled to Okalona to take on the Highview Mustangs at Southern High School. Both the Mighty Might and Junior divisions would play games on a sunny and warm morning.
    First up were the Mighty Mights, led by starting quaterback Brayden Duke. Though the hard-hitting and fast Highview team is always tough, the fast running style of the Stallions was too much to stop. The Stallions scored repeatedly, closing out the fast paced game with a pass from Duke to Wade Hutt for a touchdown, making the final score 31-0.

    Joe Paul Smith of Spencer County traveled to Pigeon Forge, Tenn., on Aug. 4 for two reasons — first to celebrate his 63rd birthday and second to run the Pigeon Forge Midnight 8K Road Race.
