Devils open 2012 with comeback win over Panthers

Warren County brought a perfect 16-0 record into Friday night's contest against the Glascock County Panthers.  It was a game that most people thought that the Screaming Devils should win easily.  Taking a closer look however, lead many close to the program to think otherwise.  Several key starters for Warren County were unavailable to play, leaving a team that lost much to graduation last year struggling to find leaders among a very young and inexperienced team of players.

Warren County's inability to get anything going offensively gave the Panthers excellent field position for most of the first half.  The Panthers capitalized early with a 17 yard run by Levi Key for the first score of the game with 2:38 to go in the first quarter.  A Warren County turnover allowed Glascock to extend their lead when Joe Brown scored on a four yard run to give the Panthers a 12-0 lead.  The lead marked the largest lead ever for Glascock over the Screaming Devils.

With Warren County down 12-0 and his offense struggling, quarterback Damien Clark literally put his team on his back and carried them down the field.  That drive included a 44 yard run setting up a touchdown run by Richard Wilburn.  It looked as though the second quarter would end with the Panthers holding a 12 point lead until Anquavious Hill returned a kickoff 74 yards to narrow the score to 20-14 with 1:48 to go in the half.

Warren County caught another break just 65 seconds later when when defensive end, Jeremy Norris, stripped the ball loose from a Panther running back and recovered the fumble on the Warren County 38 yard line. That began a 62 yard Warren County drive that included a 38 yard pass completion to freshman Jermaine Berry with only 7.4 seconds left to go in the half.  After a Warren County time-out, Richard Wilburn ran the ball into the end zone to tie the game 20-20 at the end of the first half.

The second half was a defensive battle for both teams.  Neither offense was able to move the ball effectively for much of the second half.  Warren County finally took the lead for the first time in the game when Wilburn connected with Antron Gilbert for a 51 yard touchdown pass 2:49 to go in the 4th quarter.  A depleted Warren County defense held on for the win in one of the closest battles between the two teams since 1974.

Damien Clark led the rushing attack for the Devils with 94 yards with one TD on 15 carries.  Richard Wilburn carried the ball 9 times for a total of 41 yards and one TD.  Wilburn also went 3-8 in the passing department, accumulating 107 yards through the air.  Wilburn connected with Jermaine Berry for 38 yards, Antron Gilbert for 51 yards, and Devocee Lott for 19 yards.

Warren County will have two weeks to rest their team and to hopefully return to full strength before taking on the Tigers of Washington-Wilkes.

Warren County Athlete Leaping to New Heights

Warren County's Ed'Ricus Williams has set his goals high this year.  Williams' goal is 7'2 1/4" to be exact.  That is what the Class A high jump record is in the state of Georgia.  Williams hopes to best that mark next week in the state track meet.  Williams has already jumped 7' earlier this year.

Ed'Ricus was featured in a WRDW News report as the top high jumper in the state and one of the top 2 high school high jumpers in the nation.  Williams has accomplished this despite the lack of high jump equipment to practice with at the school.  His only practice comes when he goes to meets to compete.

Ed'Ricus has already been awarded a full track scholarship to Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach.


Braves Host Warren County Students

A group of Warren County students travelled to Atlanta to catch a Braves game as guests of several Atlanta Braves players on April 18th.  Students from Coach Carey's Freshman Transition class who had met certain academic requirements were rewarded for their work this past year with tickets to the ballgame.  Coach Swann also took members of the Warren County High School baseball team.

The trip marked the first time at a Major League game for many students.  Not even the rainy weather could dampen the excitement as Atlanta dominated the Mets by the score of 14-6.

The Warren County baseball program, after years of lying dormant, was restarted about five years ago.  The team has improved each year despite the lack of a field to play on and severely limited practice facilities.  "We have gone from being run ruled in the least amount of innings played to scoring in every game this year and having no game played go less than five innings," stated Coach Swann.  Swann added, "We have the athletes to compete in baseball.  We just have to do a better job of getting them to play at the younger age levels.  We also suffer from a huge disadvantage due to the lack of practice facilities, however I could not be prouder of how far this team has come."

The Warren County students and coaches would like to thank each member of the Atlanta Braves "Reach Out, Be Our Guest Program" that contributed tickets.  The players include Tim Hudson, Chipper Jones, Brian McCann, Craig Kimbrel, Michael Bourn, and Martin Prado.

WCMS Soccer Program Continues Improving


Warren County Middle School's soccer team continued to show improvement Monday.  The Devils took to the field against Wrens Middle School in what amounted to their most competitive game of the season. 

The Devils scored their first goal of the program's history in the first half of the contest.  Stedman Hall scored on a shot that hooked past the Wrens goalie to tie the contest 1-1.  The half would end on the same score and mark the first time that the Devils had not been trailing at the end of the first half.

The numbers game seemed to take a toll on the Devils in the second half.  The Colts began to substitute fresh legs into the game and used depth as an advantage to take control of the game.  Wrens scored 3 goals in the second half to win by the score of 4-1.

Coach Dominguez was extremely pleased with the performance of his team.  "We didn't have as many kids as they have, and our team got tired," stated Dominguez, "but excitement for the program is growing as the team improves."  Coach Dominguez is especially proud of the play of his goalie, Tylexia Few.  Few has improved each game and played a key role in keeping Monday's game close by blocking several goal attempts, including a penalty kick.
