These are the games I've circled in November and December
Last season was my first operating AugBball alone. I was able to concentrate only on a few stories and teams. The Laney boys, eventually the Laney girls, the Butler boys, the top half of the region 3 race, and the Augusta University Jaguars were the teams and stories that got a full season of my attention.
But there are so many stories I want to follow. So I’ve set ambitious goals for the coming season. In addition to the highly competitive 3A boys race, I’ll closely follow the 4A and 5A races.
|Transfer Madsion Williams and Richmond face Laney (Dec 1),|
Glenn Hills (Dec 8), and Westside (Dec 15) on three consecutive Tuesdays.
And this season will include full coverage of the girls 5A and 3A action.
|Laney's Desha Benjamin leads the defending state champs into early season|
tournaments at Greenbrier (Nov 20-21) and Glenn Hills (Dec 21-23)
I’ll also add Paine and USC Aiken coverage to go along with Augusta University, forming a "local college" grouping I look forward to following.
|Returning All American and preseason Peach Belt Player of the Year|
Keshun Sherrill leads Augusta into an early season showdown with Paine (Nov 21).
Finally, I'll add Aquinas, Westminster, Alleluia, and Lincoln County to the mix, as well as special features about areaguys who are elsewhere (Matt Miller, Ricky Moore, Mike Curry, and Ahmed Hill, to name a few).
In the video above, I describe my plans, and I go into detail about the November-December non-league match ups I've circled on my calendar. I'm excited for the season to start. I'll see you in the gym!
