Pink out turns to blowout

Eastside to face No. 3 ranked Griffin

This isn't David vs. Goliath. Eastside (2-0 Region 4-AAAA) is too good of a team to be David, but Griffin (2-0 Region 4-AAAA), ranked No. 3 in the state by maxpreps.com, is definitely goliath-level football. A better comparison would probably be Rocky Balboa vs. Apollo Creed - the first time - with Eastside being Rocky and Griffin, the undisputed champion, being Apollo.

Eagles fly by Tigers

Both Alcovy and Eastside have starting lineups majorly made up of either sophomores and/or freshmen. The question coming into the game was "which team's inexperience would show more?" The answer to that question is Alcovy, as their inexperience showed throughout the game where they fell 36-6 to the Eagles.

A collection of stars

It was a softball season full of highs and lows in 2011. Eastside and Newton both returned to the state playoffs and Alcovy made strides to reclaim its standing as one of their region's elite. But the three coaches will tell you they fell short of their ultimate goals. That doesn't mean 2011 was without its share of stars.

Off the schneid

All the Eagles needed to pick up their first win under first-year head coach Gregory Freeman was a little home cooking. It didn't hurt the Eagles played an offensively-challenged Locust Grove team too. Nevertheless, the Wildcats were just what the doctor ordered and the eagles took advantage.

At least Eastside doesn't have Tim Tebow

Eastside football may have its problems this year. Injuries and suspensions, a talent drain on the offensive line and a new quarterback come to mid. But at least the Eagles don't have to deal with what the Denver Broncos are going through with Tim Tebow.
