First the chicken, then the goose egg
A game hen from Food Lion, decapitated and hanging in apparent effigy at Washington and Lee: $6.99. Canceling practice because of a nor’easter from Wednesday until Monday’s game and failing to adequately prepare for Colonial Beach’s unique single wing offense: $3.49 for Rolaids for Coach Malcolm Lewis’ heartburn. The Eagles beating the Drifters 41-0 despite it all in the regular season finale: priceless.

At 6’3” and 285 pounds of solid muscle, King George grad KC Camp is more than just another prototype offensive/defensive lineman. He has become, in two seasons at Blue Ridge School, the complete athletic package and one of the best iron-man football players in the Old Dominion Football Conference.
The former Battlefield All-District lineman has adjusted to the next level of football, both on the field and in the weight room. “The level of competition is a lot more competitive than what I experienced in the Battlefield District,” Camp said. “Every player that I’ve compete against was recruited to play football on both sides of the ball.”
