  • Cappy's Corner: Thanks...

    Regular readers may have noticed a story titled "Fuller CHS's First All-American?" last week. In it, we wrote about several former football players that we researched, trying to determine if Chiefland catcher Taylore Fuller was the first All-American the school had ever produced.

    We couldn't find any evidence of a previous All-American from Chiefland, but we still were unsure. Hence, the question mark at the end of the headline.

    The Suwannee River Breast Cancer Awareness Association held its first Charity Open Bass Tournament at Clay Landing in Chiefland on June 25.

    Legal fishing hours were safe light to 3 p.m. Despite weather forecasts of thunderstorms and hot weather, 59 boats showed up for a great cause and some friendly competition. Legal fish consisted of largemouth and Suwannee bass with a minimum length of 12 inches.

    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.

    Former Florida Gators and Dallas Mavericks forward Corey Brewer will host his second Gainesville area camp Aug. 1-3 at The Rock School.

    The Back 2 Back Youth Basketball Camp, powered by Five-Star Basketball Camps, will feature Brewer and top coaches from the area teaching sport fundamentals.

    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.

  • 'Chiefland 3' continue...

    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.

  • Camp adds more names

    Several new names, including former college players, have been added to the lineup for the Suwannee All-Skills Camp on July 9 at Chiefland High School.

  • Fuller CHS's First All-...

    Taylore Fuller may be the first player in any sport from Chiefland High School to earn All-American honors. 

    Fuller, a junior catcher who is verbally committed to the University of Florida, was named to Louisville Slugger's All-American team last week by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association. She also was named to the All-Region first team by the NFCA and was a 2A first-team All-State selection by the Florida Athletic Coaches Association.

  • BREAKING: Bronson bigman Jenkins...

    The Chiefland Citizen has confirmed DeVaughn Jenkins, one of the top basketball players in the region, has decided to transfer from Bronson High to The Rock in Gainesville.
