Marshall, a proclaimed athiest, had nothing to do with Love INC when the organization rst got involved with him, dropping food off from its food pantry. Wood, Love INCs new executive director, said gradually Marshall started going to the food pantry. That led to him volunteering to help at the food pantry, which is housed at the First Baptist Church. It eventually led to him accepting Christ as his savior. Thats an example of how we would like to see things happen, Wood said about Marshall, who passed away last year after battling can cer. They go from being a person that is being helped to being a person that is helping. ntbft rfntb nrn jamie.wachter@ganews.com LIVE OAK The Live Oak Community Rede velopment Agency agreed Tuesday to think outside the box when it comes to possibly utilizing its por table restroom trailer at Christmas on the Square. The Suwannee County Chamber of Commerce and CRA discussed using the trailer at last years event but couldnt come to an agreement, mainly due to the rental fee. Jimmy Norris, the Chambers executive director, asked the CRA board at Tuesday nights meeting if a partnership was possible to help offset that cost. For us, we just were thinking, the event is in the City of Live Oak, in the CRA district, so we were thinking maybe the CRA could partner with us so you have a presence there at the event with the trail er, Norris said. And maybe even a booth space there. But we dont want to overstep the policy but maybe theres something that helps yall and maybe CRA to think outside the box on utilizing restroom trailer jessie.box@gaflnews.com LIVE OAK The Suwannee County School Board tabled the approval of an interlocal agreement with the Suwannee Coun ty Board of County Com missioners at Tuesdays meeting. The Federal Emergen cy Management Agency (FEMA) requires coun ties to pay school boards for the use of schools as storm shelters in the case of emergencies. According to Superin tendent Ted Roush, the commissioners wanted to ensure the county would not be on the hook for reimbursing the district unless the district made the deadlines for FEMA reimbursement. We were anticipating having the document back with those changes made but we have not yet re ceived them, Roush said. The school board did pass a resolution requir ing the display of In God We Trust in all dis trict schools and adminis tration buildings. This resolution is re quired by state law after House Bill 7055 was passed. Im kind of ashamed we didnt have this in there before, board member Ed daSilva said. Im glad it is in there now.

That included members of both departments recently taking part in the Lip Sync Challenge that has swept the nation. I just felt like it was a good thing for the guys to do, to have fun and show the lighter side of life, I guess you can say, LOPD Chief Buddy Williams said, adding his ofcers denitely had my approval.

The case will be prosecuted by the Ofce of the State Attorney, 8th Judicial Circuit. Live Oak veteran recognized for military service LIVE OAK Live Oak resident Richard Crowe was recognized by Ha ven Veteran Volunteers recently. Crowe served in the United States Army for two years and then went on to serve in the U.S. Navy for two years as well. I was drafted into the Army during Vietnam and was sent to Fort Ben ning, Georgia for infantry training, said Crowe, who is originally from Live Oak. From there I was sent around to different bases for various training before they nally sent us over to Germany for 18 months. After his two years in the U.S. Army, Crowe decided to join the U. S. Navy where he served as a gunners mate aboard the USS Sellers. At the conclusion of his military service, he returned home to Live Oak. When I returned home I got a milk and ice cream route, said Crowe. Then I spent time in sales and went on to work at UPS for 35 and a half years before I retired. The Haven Pinning Ceremony for veteran patients includes a veteran pin, a thank you card signed by the staff and a certicate of appreciation from Haven, which are all presented by volunteer veterans. The presenta tion ends with a salute to honor the veterans service.

Second, a discussion from the mayor of Live Oak regarding a visit to the health re sort of White Springs: To Messrs. Wight and Powell: Gents: I visited the White Sulphur Spring, in Hamilton County, FLA., in the latter part of August, and remained there about two weeks. I was in a low state of health, and had a vi olent attack of fever, and my kidneys were seriously involved. I had the best medical attention, but could get no permanent relief. But in two days after I reached the spring, I was relieved from pain, and am now entirely well. I drank both of the Sul phur and chalybeate water. I take pleasure FRIDAY, JULY 27, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 3A Remembering Suwannee 117464-1 Old advertisements for Suwannee County It is very fascinating to read newspaper articles prior to airplanes, fax machines, computers and other more modern con veniences. Despite the antique methods of passing information, information still spread from coast to coast. Some time ago, I came across the May 23, 1885, edi tion of the Tropical Paradise newspaper of Jacksonville that contained several adver tisements and news reports of Suwannee County and its environs, and I thought that I would share. First, there was the discussion of im proved water facilities in the town of Live Oak: The artesian well at Live Oak is now nearly, if not quite, 500 feet deep, and is still going down. Strong fumes of coal gas came up from the depths during the rst days of last week, but the crev ices from which the gas came have been passed. in giving this testimonial, that other like sufferers may avail themselves of the ben et of the waters. John Frazier, Mayor, Live Oak, Fla Third, there was a discussion of trans portation between White Springs, Well born and nearby communities: White Springs Hack Lines Parties visiting the White Sulphur Springs, on the Suwanee River, if going by the Florida Railway and Navigation Companys roads, are given half-rate round-trip tickets, with hack coupons attached, to Welborn, where the hacks of the McLeran Bros. line are in waiting to convey them out to the Springs, the dis tance being only eight miles. The equip ments of this line are in every way ample and satisfactory, making the trip through the country quick and pleasant. Courteous attention is guaranteed all passengers, and delays are specially avoided. These tickets are on sale at all ofces of the railroad company named, and allow any time at the Springs desired. At Live Oak, passengers for the Springs by the Savannah Florida and Western Companys lines which also accords half rates and sells tickets with hack coupons attached will be for warded promptly to destination by Gus Potsdamer, who keeps in readi a rst-class turnout and spares no pains to secure the comfort and satisfaction of patrons. The roads from either point to the Springs are good, and the trip through the country en joyable by either route. More history next week!

Soil moisture sensors are one of the most popular precision tools that have been and are still being adopted by producers in the Suwannee River Basin. This technology helps the farmer make better irriga tion decisions, aides with record keeping, and allows him to keep an eye on the crops roots. This serves as a win-win scenario for both the grower and our natural resources. How Does it Work? Soil moisture informa tion from sensors helps farmers make better wa tering decisions based on output from near real-time data. The sensors, located at varying depths along the soil moisture probe, send out electrical signals periodically. The time it takes the signal to transmit through the soil and then return to the sensor along with changes in the signal structure are entered into a mathematical algorithm which calculates the soil moisture content. The sig nals are emitted at many depths along the probe (beneath the soil surface) which show farmers the depths where roots are actively taking up wa ter. Farmers can also see where fertiliz er salts might be ac cumu lating in the soil serving as a guide for making improved decisions on fertilizer inputs as well. The data is viewed online and can be observed shortly after installation and obtaining a log-in. Economic and Environmental Benets With this tool farmers can potentially decrease both water and fer tilizer inputs as well as costs. One way the pro ducer can reduce input costs is by making better use of rainfall and grow ing a healthier crop by not overwatering which can increase yield. Using soil moisture sensors, a grower can dry down the soil pri or to a rain event thereby increasing the capacity of the soil to store rain wa ter. Any water a grower does not need to pump saves money. Addition ally, many producers are now looking at irrigation schedules (a game plan for how a crop should be irrigated) for individual crops. The information in this watering game plan is based on things like: planting date, type of crop and season or time of year. Employing soil moisture sensors, coupled with an irrigation schedule, provides new opportunities for growers to increase yield and re duce costs. By managing irrigation more precisely and accurately, nutrients are much less susceptible to be lost before they can be taken up by the plant. Overall, the quality and quantity of our precious water resources are being enhanced through the use of this little tool. Impacts Since January 2017, the Suwannee River Wa ter Management District has partnered with farms throughout the district to en able the use of 228 sensors, which has helped reduce water use by more than 4 million gallons of water per day (Suwannee River Water Management District home page). This number does not include sensors cost-shared by other conservation agen cies, or the farmers who are increasingly purchasing the technology without any assistance. Dr. Charles Bar rett, UF/IFAS Regional Spe cialized Extension Agent of Water Resources, is leading a region-wide effort which entails loaning out probes to commercial producers who have not yet imple mented the use of probes on their operations. So far, within only a couple of recent months, this project has introduced the sensor technology to more than 15 new irrigated farms and going. For more information on soil moisture probes, con tact your local agriculture or water resource extension agent.

Page steps into new role as NFCCs Dean of Academic Affairs MADISON Jennifer Page stepped onto the North Florida Community College campus as a student, recently graduated from Suwannee High School, in 1995 and essentially began her NFCC career. She began accumulating knowl edge on that first day that would later serve her well as an NFCC administrator. After receiving an Associate in Arts degree, she moved on to earn a B.S. in English Education from Florida State Uni versity and a Masters in Education from the University of North Flor ida. In 2010 she returned to campus as an adjunct instructor teaching English and Student Life Skills. She became a full-time faculty member in 2012, was promoted to Academic Success Center Coordi nator in 2014 and in 2015 moved to the Office of Academic Affairs as Director of Curriculum and Instruction. This April she was named NFCCs new Dean of Aca demic Affairs. I have been fortunate to expe rience different roles preparing me for this opportunity class room teacher, academic support coordinator and administrator, Page said. For three years, Dean Frances Adleburg allowed me to work side-by-side with her. Her leadership helped prepare me for what has so far felt like a seamless transition into my new role. As Dean, Page wants to help fuel the success of programs, courses and, most importantly, students at NFCC. Her office has two new projects on the horizon to do exact ly that. Im excited about our initiative to reduce the cost of textbooks by implementing Open Education al Resources (OER) across the curriculum, she said. Our goal is to eventually offer a complete degree with no textbook costs. Im also excited about expanding our distance learning opportunities, making it possible for a student to complete an A.A. degree complete ly online. Helping students reach their academic and career goals will drive everything I do, Page added. And when its all said and done, I hope faculty will feel that I did my best to give them the support, re sources and encouragement needed for them to do their jobs well. Page credits NFCCs caring and talented faculty, her assistant Cheri Green and her work family with making her job rewarding. I can walk into any office on this campus and be greeted by indi viduals who are committed to serv ing NFCCs students, she said. We are a team: we share common goals, we help each other and we learn from one another. Page is a native of Suwannee County and grew up in Dowling Park. She currently lives in Madi son with her husband Ernie. They have been married for 15 years and have two children, Logan, 8, and Abby, 6. rfntbr rrrrnntr nf OBRIEN Looking to help reduce accidental in juries, the Florida Department of Health in Suwannee County is holding a summer safety awareness event next week. The DOH-Suwannee is hosting the event Friday, Aug. 3, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Little River Springs in OBrien. The Suwannee County Sheriffs Ofce, the Suwannee County Sheriffs Ofce Division of Emer gency Management, Suwannee County Fire Rescue and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission are partnering with DOH-Suwannee to conduct the event. Those attending the safety event will learn how to prepare for storms as well as receive an emergency items checklist and hurricane tracking information. The event is designed to be a learning experience as well as allowing parents and children the chance to enjoy Little River Springs, which is located at 24891 105th Lane. The summer safety awareness event comes after DOH-Suwannee hosted a bike safety rodeo July 20. Were surrounded by water, DOH-Suwannee Health Administrator Kerry Waldron said at that event. Weve got not only the rivers, but weve also got lakes. So what can we do to make people more aware of how to respect the water and also be safe on the water.

You are collateral damage only if you are a manufacturer, farmer or consumer, so relax and enjoy the following reports. Whirlpool, which makes wash ing machines and demands for government protection, wheedled Washington into imposing tariffs on, and quotas for, imported machines. Unfortunately for Whirlpool, American steel and aluminum makers horned in on the protectionist fun, getting tariffs taxes paid by Americans imposed on imports of those materials that, The Wall Street Journal says, account for most of the weight of 200-pound washing machines. And for part of the decline in Whirlpools share price. And for declining demand for applianc es, the prices of which have risen as protectionism increases manufacturing costs and decreases compe tition. Citing the threat to Americas national securi ty from American consumers (they caused 2017s imports of $192 billion worth of cars, 44 percent of all cars sold in America), the administration contem plates imposing tariffs on cars. USA Today estimates that the tariffs would add $4,000 to $5,000 (approx imately the size of this years tax cut on $125,000 in income) to the price of a car (average price: about $32,000). U.S. auto manufacturers oppose the tariffs, which would also cover vehicle components, $147 billion of which ($100 billion more than steel and alu minum imports combined) were imported last year for cars made in America by Americans and sold mostly to Americans. General Motors supply chain includes 20,000 busi nesses worldwide. Of the seven most American car models, measured by the value of domestically made components, four are Hondas, three models made in Alabama and one made in Ohio. The number of 2018 models whose parts are all American or Canadian: 0. However, the hundreds of thousands of Americans employed by Japanese automakers have less to fear than other American autoworkers do from the Amer ican governments fears about American consumers threat to Americas security. China, retaliating against new U.S. tariffs on Chinese products, has raised to 40 percent the tariffs on imports of American-made autos. These include BMWs (87,600 of the 385,900 made in South Carolina in 2017 were exported to China) and Mercedes (The Wall Street Journal reports that two-thirds of the approximately 300,000 vehicles made in Alabama are exported worldwide). The New York Times reports that BMW has stopped export ing the X3 crossover from South Carolina to China, shifting production of it to plants in China and South Africa. Volvo, formerly Swedish but now Chinese-owned, just opened a $1.1 billion South Carolina plant that currently employs 1,200. Volvo has planned to in crease employment to 4,000, with half the workers building cars for export, especially to the worlds largest auto market, China. (In 2018s second quar ter, GM sold 758,000 vehicles in America, 858,344 in China.) So, under current policies, China will impose a 40 percent tax on imports made by a Chi nese-owned company. Last year, soybeans were $12.4 billion of Amer icas $19.6 billion in agricultural exports to China, which might impose a 25 percent tariff on soybeans. The Wall Street Journal reports that University of Il linois and Ohio State University researchers estimate that over four years this would result in an average 87 percent decline in income for a midsize Illinois grain farm. The caroms of trade aggressions and retaliations call to mind an experience Gulliver had when his travels took him to the grand academy of Lagado. There he met a man who had worked eight years upon a project for extracting sunbeams out of cu cumbers, which were to be put in phials hermetically sealed, and let out to warm the air in raw inclement summers. To those who say that this is as plausible as trying to produce prosperity with protectionism correctly likened to pursuing wealth by blockading ones own ports todays trade warriors respond: Have patience. Given sufcient time, protectionism will pay. But as the comedian Steven Wright says, every where is walking distance if you have the time. Speaking of time: In the 1830s, a Baptist preacher predicted Jesus would return to Earth sometime between March 21, 1843 and March 21, 1844. When the world persisted, its end was re-predicted by the preachers followers for October 22, 1844. Between March and October, the number of believers increased substantially. Despite their great disappointment on October 23, many followers held to their beliefs and went on to found the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The les son from this story, as from the protectionists sun beams-from-cucumbers economics, is familiar: The persuasive power of evidence is overrated.

Dr. Walter Williams, PhD, professor of economics and ONLY economics, opines over a range of matters as in the Suwannee Democrat July 18, 2018, Justices Should Up hold, Defend the Constitution. He writes ...President Trump can return us to the Fram ers vision of the Judiciary---a vision thats held in con tempt by many liberals and conservatives. Dr. Williams association of contempt to liberals and conservatives is uncharacteristically generous, and charac teristically contrived. Dr. Willams assertion that a living constitutional view is anathema to the Framers intent is curious. Following ratication in 1788 ten improvements were tacked on in 1791, by the Framers, a move which originalist Williams evidently disparages, and as far as the First Amendment is concerned, Donald Trump clearly disapproves. Dr. Williams then provides a problem solving technique wherein equanimity is achieved as one party slices a pie in two, while the other gets rst pick. Dr. Williams misin terprets this intervention as a method for improving aim. Dr. Williams next discusses the Super Bowl suggesting rules are for referees, not players, and should we devise neutral rules, football would essentially play itself, leaving referees to go do something else, along with the originalist Supreme Court Justices? Concerning the conversation the County Commissioners had regarding animals being housed inside the schools while being used as shelters, I submit that perhaps the School Boards new administration building be built with

I understand that children have allergies and also have the potential to encounter feces on the outdoor surfaces that could be detri mental to their health. Therefore, the newest building should designed to accommodate this need so the children they are sworn to protect are not at risk. The administration staff should assume that health risk. Russian Federation prosecutors want to interrogate United States citizens. Thats an interesting idea respond ed the President of the United States. He had just refreshed his under standing of a 25 September 1789 Amendment to the United States Constitution, ...no person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of the law... He reached in his jacket, dug out a well worn pocket oath, and looked at it it: I, Donald John Trump, do solemnly swear (or afrm) that I will faithfully execute the ofce of Presi dent of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, pro tect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. then, tucking the oath into his wal let, said, Ill run this by my team.

A rant about some so-called lawn maintenance professionals and resi dents that nd it acceptable to deposit large amounts of grass clippings into the streets and leave them there. Some from negligence. Some inten tionally. The results are the same. In wet weather like were having, it rots and gets slippery. People and vehicles slip and slide on it. When it can wash away, it washes down and clogs up the storm drains. Surely there is a city code or ordinance against this practice. It is regular and frequent. Where is the enforcement? Take a drive around Sherwood Forest and Oakhurst subdi vision for examples. Youll nd plenty of it. Its just a shame. And would not even hope for a city street sweeper as havent seen one of those in these neighborhoods in over 20 years. I have a couple questions for our commissioners. On their tour of the county, did they show everyone Ses sions road that the taxpayers spent $250,000 for? Second, last year with Irma they moved everyone with animals from the Coliseum to the schools. Here we are into hurricane season and now they want studies on the Coliseum. Why did they wait until now? Shouldnt it have been done a long time ago? It just shows how they work. P R I C I N G P R I C I N G it helps us too. The portable facility cur rently is used at CRA-spon sored festivals, such as the Freedom Festival on the Fourth of July as well as the Candy Carnival for Halloween. It also was used when the city held JAB Fest downtown. The CRA also will rent the trailer to groups holding events in the CRA district for $520, which covers the usage fee as well as a clean ing charge. And that is where that talks with the Chamber stopped a year ago. You guys know we ght as a non-prot and working that event over there, Norris said. We couldnt resolve the issue we had, which was basically the cost. I know theres a cost in volved and there has to be. But the thing is never used. Maybe a time or two a year. Indeed, George Curtis, the citys Planning/Zoning and Development Director, said the facility was rented out one time in the past year. I think the other night at the reworks, I think that was the rst or second time Ive even seen the trailer, Councilman and board member Mark Stewart said. I dont know what that says, maybe I dont get out to the events. CRA chairman David Burch said the issue is de nitely one the board would be willing to discuss possi ble options. He asked Curtis and City Manager Ron Williams to bring ideas back to the board at the August meeting. The policy is the policy, Burch said. But maybe thinking outside the box, maybe that could be some thing sponsored through the CRA. Where we dont have to change the policy. We could look at it. Norris agreed, saying that is where the Chamber hoped a partnership would come into play. Its there to help the community and these events, thats what it is for, Burch said, adding though the CRA cant just give the trail er away to be used at every event. Property purchase The CRA board approved the purchase of a property at 202 Georgia Ave. at Tuesdays meeting at its ap praised value of $29,000. The property sits in the CRAs Heritage Square de velopment area. The board previously purchased the property next door at 210 Georgia Ave. This is another key piece to the redevelopment of Her itage Square, Curtis said, adding that it would give the CRA the land all the way up against the CSX rightof-way. The 210 Georgia Ave. property was purchased for $28,500 in January, which was above the appraised value. Curtis added the 202 Georgia Ave. property is slightly larger. The way it ts into our plan, its worthwhile, Cur tis said. Board member Cindy Robinson did ask if it was possible to try and save the house on the property, rather than have it demolished. Curtis and Williams said they would look into seeing what that would all entail and the cost of doing so. Continued From Page 1A CRA Thats always our goal. Its the goal she hopes Love INC continues to work toward now two months into her tenure as executive director. She said she would like to see more classes or counseling being offered to help clients improve their lives. It could be nancial classes, cooking classes or coupon classes. I would like to, Love INC national, their goal is not just to give a handout, Wood said. The goal is give a hand up. It would be nice if we could get some of those things into place where were not just doing a transaction, but rather that were loving on our people and helping them become all that they can be. In order to offer some of those classes, though, Wood said rst Love INC would need either vol unteers or churches step forward and assume those tasks. Ideally, Wood said it would be area churches getting involved and being willing to offer the class es with Love INC then nding clients to attend. It would also be a way to get the people into the churches, which could lead to more stories like Mar shalls. Church is how Wood got involved with Love INC. She attended church with Lisa Kriehn, the former executive director who stepped down in April. From talking with Kriehn, Wood could tell the organization needed help. She offered to bring her youngest son by as a vol unteer. She did that two days a week. She came ve. When I got up here, I just loved it, she said. That was four or ve years ago. Wood never left, becom ing the clearinghouse coor dinator for Love INC two years ago and now becom ing executive director. My heart is for the people, she said. I just want to try and help the people in the best way that we can, the best way that we know how, the best way that God leads us to rise above their cir cumstances. Continued From Page 1A Wood badge. Its just good for people to see that were just like everybody else, said Tyler Harmon, with the SCSO. We like to have a good time. We take our job very seriously, but we like to cut up and giggle and have fun. LOPD ofcer Ryan Mc Fadden added: Its just not seriousness and, Hey, we have a gun and a badge. Were people and human too. We have charisma and we have character. I think thats what shows, that were not always trying to put some person in jail. Suwannee County Sheriff Sam St. John, much like Williams, was in complete support of his ofcers taking part in the challenge. St. John said while it allowed the hu man side of the ofcers to be shown, he added the timing could not have been any bet ter, with the negative percep tions circulating around law enforcement nation-wide. I think its such a good thing, he said. We show the public that were just like you, that we like to have fun. This is a way to convey it. This is a positive all the way around. Once both departments decided to take part in the positive movement LOPD was challenged by the Jen nings Police Department before challenging the SCSO how to approach the vid eos became the challenge. When you start thinking about lip sync, a million things come to mind but you dont know which one ts, Williams said. Theres a lot of songs you can lip sync to. You have to pick the right song that ts with what you want to do. At the LOPD, the nal decision was on Journeys Dont Stop Believing The popular 1981 rock hit was a song ofcers both new and old knew. The SCSO went with a medley of songs, from A Thousand Miles to Its Not Unusual to You Dropped a Bomb on Me to a car scene from the movie Tommy Boy. One of our biggest things was we wanted to be a little Continued From Page 1A Lip Sync rfnfrtbtrtr nr rf rnt rnt nn t bit different than everybody else, Harmon said. We didnt want to do the tradi tional sit in the car. We want ed to be a little different and do the best we could. One way the SCSO sepa rated its video which was shot and produced by Kim berly Harrell Photography from others was the inclu sion of bloopers at the end. It was an addition that paid off. Ive seen more comments that they love the bloopers than the singing, St. John said. It also likely wont be the only addition to the lip sync challenge craze from the local law enforcement agencies. Williams hinted that there could be an additional video from LOPDs management. St. John, too, said there has been nothing ofcial set, but it likely wasnt the SCSOs last video. That would be OK with the ofcers too. I personally wouldnt mind some of us doing sin gle cars instead of a group, MacFadden said. We could show off dance moves and get people to laugh.

There is no shortage of talent and expe rience at the running back position for the Bulldogs, Buccaneers, Hornets and Trojans. All four teams have seniors as their featured backs. Suwannee Carlton Hall Carlton Hall is set to begin his third sea son as Suwannees starting running back. Tough, physical and fast, Hall has demon strated a big-time skill set in his time with the Bulldogs. He can pound inside the tack les for tough yards, and his speed has led to some big plays and long touchdown runs. The only thing that has keep Hall from 1,000-yard rushing seasons he ran for 836 in 2016 and 904 yards in 2017 was missing some time with injuries each of the past two seasons. Hall has run for 100 yards or more on 11 occasions, which is more than half of the games he has played. The Bulldogs lost a good backup running back in Demarius Thompson. So it will be important for Hall to stay healthy as he tries to lead the Bulldogs back to the playoffs after a two-year drought.

FRIDAY, JULY 27, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 3B year as starting running back. Hes coming off consecutive 1,000 yard seasons and was an Honorable Mention All-State selection in 2017. Edwards was a key factor in the passing game last season with 22 receptions. He ran for more than 200 yards in two games last season and had three games where he scored three touchdowns. Edwards will be running be hind an entirely new offensive line. Hamilton County Keyvon Webb, Melvin Brown, Tyler Whetstone, Denadre Johnson, Bailey Hawkins, Foster Bristol (fullback) The Trojans averaged just 13 points per game in 2017 and nearly half of their points came in a 60-0 win against North Florida Education Institute. Even though HCHS was down, Keyvon Webb didnt let that affect his motor. He averaged more than four yards per carry and led the team in rushing. New Hamilton County head coach Ric Whittington said Webb will play a mix of run ning back and quarterback this season. Theres plenty of depth at running back, especially with the talented Melvin Brown, who has had success on the ground. Whittington named ve play ers who could see time at RB. At fullback, Foster Bristol gives the Trojans another option in the running game. Bristol is only a freshman, but he saw action last season as an eighth grader. Branford Aaron McQuay Of all the area running backs, Aaron McQuay had the biggest impact on his team in 2017. As McQuay went, so did the Bucs. In Branfords ve wins, Mc Quay averaged 162 yards rush ing per game. In ve losses, he ran for 65 yards per game. In his rst year as a starter, McQuay ran for 1,135 yards and 11 touchdowns while being named a Class 1A All State Honorable Mention. Hell be the main focus of the offense once again this season and will give Branford a serious shot at the playoffs.
