The Starting Five

The real deal at South?

by on Sep.23, 2012, under College Baseball, Prep Football, Prep Sports

Little heading into week 5 of the high school football season did anyone think South Hagerstown would start the season with a 4-0 record. After all, it’s only been since 1990 when the Rebels started off similarly.
Following Friday’s 21-14 victory over Thomas Johnson, the Rebels are now 4-0. It looks to me like South could very well be 9-0 when it locks horns with rival North Hagerstown to end the regular season.
I mentioned regular season — in Class 3A the win over Thomas Johnson is going to have a favorable impact for the Rebels in first level points and they’ll likely get hlp from TJdown the road with points from TJ wins.
Isiaha Smith has been a rushing workhorse and Brandon Jackson appears like he’s becoming more comfortable at quarterback. There are others such as Michael Hill and Jakerian Jones helping shape the offense.
But the defense has been superb, coming up with five interceptions against TJ.
Hopefully the players continue to work hard this week and in each of the upcoming weeks. Maybe School Stadium can begin to rock again.

    With the success of the current SHHS football team, maybe it is time to look back at with out a doubt was the greatest HS football team ever to play in Hagerstown. This is the 50th anniversity of the 1962 SHHS football team coached by Doug Couchran,Adam Craven and Bill Malesky, not only went undefeated,but beat 2 teams that only lost one game.Playing in both the Tristate league and the Cumberland Valley Athletic League, this SHHS footbal team this team defeated both Fort Hill and Chambersburg High School, teams that only lost one game.
    For additional information you can possibly contact Buzz Sawyer, who used to cover high school football for the newspaper.
