Fire up the hype machine, just don’t ask Khavon

The pot is being stirred for Westside-Pace Academy, a game many wish could be put off until the GHSA Class 3A boys basketball championship round.

Falcons win will be great sendoff for Georgia Dome

Additional signing periods good for early football commits

The NCAA has proposed adding signing periods in June and December for football, giving high schoolers a chance to set aside recruiting pressure. And while that’s a good step, incoming players should also have the opportunity to void their national letter-of-intent should their head coach or position coach leave before the player arrives on campus.
