Speaking of Game On...

The Asheville Citizen-Times reports "Asheville High won its first state title in football since 1922 on Saturday with a 13-10 win over Western Alamance at Wallace Wade Stadium."

"The Cougars (15-0) trailed 10-7 midway through the fourth quarter when quarterback Crezdon Butler completed a 70-yard touchdown pass to Rahkeem Morgan on a trick play.

Morgan ran toward the Asheville bench like he was going to the sideline but stopped short of crossing the out of bounds line.

No defender covered him and Butler’s pass found a wide-open Morgan, who sprinted to the end zone for the winning score.

Butler clinched the win with a leaping, one-handed interception with 2:44 remaining.

Johnny White scored Asheville’s first touchdown on a two-yard run in the first period."

Go Cougars! You fellas played hard all year. Grats to Butler, Morgan, White, and Coach Wilkins and the whole team!

Asheville High Cougars are the 2005 3A State Champions in Football!!!!!

Now Uptown can shave his beard. At his leisure, of course.

Though, I kind of like it now.
