We will be heading down to Brookville (Lynchburg) here shortly for our radio broadcast of the R.E. Lee - Brookville contest and we will also be keeping an eye on the Buffalo Gap @ William Campbell contest. Both schools from Augusta County that are still playing this week are both on the road and both facing football teams with impressive resumes.
________________________________
1.What will R.E Lee have to do to defeat Brookville ?
* Contain Logan Thomas - Thomas plays both sides of the ball for the Bees but does most of his damage from the Quarterback position.
________________________________
2. Just how good is young Mr. Thomas ?
* Thomas is 6'6 and has already signed with Frank Beamer & Va. Tech. He was just named to play in the U.S Army All American Football Game in San Antonio, Texas on January 3,2009.
________________________________
3. The Bees are UN-defeated at 11-0, have they been tested ?
* They opened with a 24-21 victory over Amherst County. ACHS is the 2-time defending State Champions and had a 26 game UN-beaten streak stopped that night. Note - ACHS is also playing tonight for their Region Championship.
________________________________
4. How talented were the other teams Brookville faced this season ?
* A third team from the Seminole District is also still playing football tonight. Jefferson Forrest faces Amherst County. The Bees defeated JFHS 19-7 back in early October (10/4/08)
________________________________
5. Where is Brookville located and how do I get there ?
* Brookville High School plays its home games at "The Hive" which is located on US-460 Business in the Timberlake section of Lynchburg...

What about Buffalo Gap and the Bison ?
________________________________
Region B Finals:
Buffalo Gap Bison (11-0) @ William Campbell Generals (10-1) (Naruna, Va.)
Kick Off : 7:00 P.M.
The winner of this game has advanced to capture the State Championship each of the last 3 seasons. WCHS in 2005, Riverheads in 2006 and Buffalo Gap in 2007. The winner of tonight's game should be favored to make it 4 in a row.
Both teams had impressive victories last week in the Semi-Finals. The Generals jumped out to a 64-0 lead over a solid Riverheads squad on the way to a 64-6 final. Gap took to the road and defeated Cumberland 46-12 in one of their most impressive performances of the season.
The fans leaving Swoope for the game need to take US-501 South out of Lynchburg, Va. to get to the contest. Remember that kick off is slated for 7:00 P.M. not 7:30 P.M. so if you are driving down remember to allow yourself the extra time...
Pickle's #'s heading in - 223 carries / 1,810 yards / 30 TD's
Go Bison !
