    At last, Gayle fits his family genes
    Football was always in his DNA. The problem was, somebody apparently forgot to tell his DNA. When James Gayle moved to Hampton as an eighth-grader, he stood just a shade over 5-foot-6. Nice size for a jockey, but not for a kid whose father and uncle both...
  • Oscar Smith grounds out rout

    Oscar Smith spent this season running roughshod over the Southeastern District with a strong passing game and little help from the rushing attack. But with a soggy and downright muddy field Friday night, the Tigers used their legs to upend visiting Bethel...
  • 'House boy' staying out of trouble

    Tim Boyd is a Navy man, so it makes sense that he'd run a tight ship. His oldest son, Tajh, is a football hero and Big Man On Campus at Phoebus High, but the rules at home still apply. Among them: No driver's license, at least not yet. Doesn't matter...
  • Bethel defensive end picks HU

    This is one birthday present Daryell Walker isn't likely to forget. Walker, a Bethel High defensive end who turns 18 on Feb. 4, National Signing Day, verbally committed to Hampton University on Thursday. Walker said he was impressed with HU's coaching...

  • There's no room at the Inn

  • Big day for Phoebus, other seniors

    Boosted by the most successful senior class in Phoebus football history, both on the field and on Signing Day, 20 players from Peninsula-area schools officially accepted college scholarships Wednesday. Seven are going to Football Bowl Subdivision...
  • Three times the danger

    Relaxing on a sofa a few minutes before a photo shoot, they're three buddies who, as all buddies should, are goofing on each other. Yet under the Friday night lights, when things really matter, they're rivals. Three running backs at three different...
  • Bethel rolls in season opener

    — All in all, things could have been a lot worse. Somebody could have been hit with a season-ending injury, or all those early mistakes could have resulted in a touchdown. Instead, after getting fooled on an onside kick to start the game and...
  • Stunningly easy rout: Phoebus 52, Bethel 0

    Stunningly easy rout: Phoebus 52, Bethel 0
    Here's all you need to know about Phoebus' domination Monday night: With just over a minute left in the first half, 270-pound lineman Dominik Davenport had gained nearly twice as many yards as Bethel's entire team. Yes, it was that bad. And, for the...
  • Bethel comes from behind, beats Warwick 31-28

    If you're going against Bethel, you have to like your chances if Jontel Evans rushes for only 25 yards. And that's what happened Friday night at Todd Stadium Warwick stuffed the Bruins' best offensive player at the line of scrimmage. But the Raiders...
