  • Columnist encourages joining the 'Dove Club'

    By Tony Young

    To me, the best part about hunting is not harvesting game – but spending quality time outdoors with friends and family. One of the best ways to do that is through dove hunting, which is one reason why great dove hunts are in such high demand but often difficult to find.

    That’s why the FWC created its Special-Opportunity Dove Club Program – to offer hunters the chance of experiencing exceptional dove hunting on the state’s best public dove fields.

  • Jenkins transferring from Bronson to The Rock

    A family member has confirmed that DeVaughn Jenkins, one of the top basketball players in the region, has decided to transfer from Bronson High to The Rock in Gainesville.

    This is quite a blow to a Bronson Eagles team that struggled despite Jenkins averaging a double-double as a freshman this past season. The 6-foot-7 guard/forward even recorded a pair of triple-doubles, putting up double digits in points, rebounds and blocked shots.

    Three Chiefland football players were not on college coaches’ radars before this summer. That certainly has changed as the trio of Quan Coffee, Jeremy McClellan and Alphonzo Timmons has advanced to the third stage of Schuman’s National Underclassmen Combine. 

    After impressive showings at the NUC in Orlando, they were invited to the Ultimate 100 Camp in Atlanta last month. Strong performances by all three there have resulted in them being invited to the Elite 22 Combine in Oklahoma on July 23-24.
