Filling the void

Coming off one of the school’s best seasons in recent memory, the Riverside football team is putting the pieces in place to try to make another strong run this fall.

The Warriors, who were knocked out of the playoffs by Spartanburg last October, will lose some senior leadership to graduation, leaving several key jobs up for grabs.

The Rebels made strides this spring, reloading for another Upper State title appearance in 2015.

Rebels show progress

After back-to-back trips to the Upper State championship game, Byrnes is hoping a reloaded, experienced roster will hold the key to success in 2015.

The Rebel football team recently wrapped up spring practice sessions, and head coach Brian Lane said he was pleased with his team’s progress.

Honoring the champs

It was the summer of 1957.

The local mills were bustling, Greer was a much smaller community and the Post 115 team was on its way to making history.

Thursday night, that team reunited, celebrating its run to the American Legion World Series.

“It was great,” Former player Steve Brown said. “It meant the world to us.”

Back to the basics

The Tigers won’t be starting from scratch this fall, but there’s plenty of rebuilding to be done.

Waving goodbye to a key group of seniors, the Blue Ridge football team tested its new look for the first time Friday during the annual spring game.
