By STEVEN MARSH - Sports Editor

First-year Brookville head football coach Jonathan Meeks has a cast full of Muhammad Ali-like performers on his squad -- players who float like butterflies and sting like their moniker: bees.

Senior Daequan Myers is the king bee and Friday night, he showed Franklin County why that's so.

Myers gained 201yards on 12 carries and scored three touchdowns in leading Brookville to a 35-7 triumph over the Eagles on homecoming at C.I. (Cy) Dillon Stadium-Fred M. Brown Memorial Field.

The Bees (7-1), who compete in the Seminole District and who entered the game ranked No. 8 in the state in Group 3A by won their third straight game and avenged last year's loss to the Eagles (1-7), who suffered their sixth straight loss.

By STEVEN MARSH - Sports Editor

FERRUM -- Huntingdon (Ala.) College's defense locked Ferrum College out of the end zone for a half and its offense had no problem finding paydirt for three quarters Saturday.

That summed up the second USA South Athletic Conference match-up between the Panthers and the Hawks, won by Huntingdon, 35-16, at W.B. Adams Stadium.

With the victory, the Hawks (4-1 in the USA South, 5-2 overall), a winner of four straight games, maintain a share of first place in the league standings with three conference contests to play.

Huntingdon earned a berth in the NCAA Division III playoffs the year before it joined the USA South, but this year, the Hawks are seeking to become the sixth conference team to qualify for postseason play since 2001, the league's inaugural intercollegiate football campaign.
