Gray King waited two and a half years to get his hands on the football. The redshirt sophomore has rarely seen the playing field for Auburn outside of special teams, but when fellow receiver Stanton Truitt went down with an injury at Arkansas, King's name was called — and he delivered.

The annual Cheer Off was a bug success!  The weather may have been dreary, but the field was full of smiles!  All of our nine cheer squads did a fantastic job, but ultimately the Packers took 1st place!  They were followed by the Bears in 2nd place, and the Steelers in 3rd.  We had a great showing of support by our football players who presented the girls with flowers as a token of their appreciation for supporting them throughout the season.  A great big Thank You to Eric Olsen who rocked the music, and to our wonderful coaches who have dedicated so much of their time to working with our girls!

 Each year revisions are made to improve NYO’s Football program. The most significant changes that will be implemented in 2015 are summarized below.

  1. 1).  Training Camp – Immediately prior to tryouts a new feature of NYO Football will be introduced called Training Camp beginning on August 4, 2015 which will involve several days of instruction and light conditioning. Player safety is the primary objective of Training Camp which will be lead by former NFL player Buddy Curry who is a Heads Up master trainer. Objectives for Training Camp will include: teaching Heads Up drills to NYO coaches, providing players with appropriate Heads Up instruction, heat acclimation and light conditioning before contact drills in Tryouts. A secondary benefit of Training Camp will be that it will provide coaches with more time to evaluate players prior to the draft. The new player orientation will be eliminated.

Marist Seniors, Ian Gipson and Sage Hardin have played in 128 football games together, beginning in 2004. They have been teammates since Ian’s father, Jay Gipson, drafted Sage for the NYO Pee Wee Hornets. Both boys, seven, had never played football before. When Gipson drafted Sage, another coach jumped up and said “You’ve got to trade him to me, his father, (Allen Sage Hardin, III “Bo”) and I are going to coach together!” Gipson was adamant. He wasn’t going to trade the “biggest kid in the league.” Legend has it that Hardin had a few choice words about the situation to his wife, Sheri. As an olive branch, at the first practice, Gipson asked Hardin to be his assistant coach. Click photo or headline and read more ...

I swore to myself that I wasn’t going to get emotionally involved.  I’ve been down that road before with 8 yr. old football - another great championship run.  I wasn’t going to let it happen again.  The fact that I am actually having this discussion with myself is a bonus for my son and my family - championships are hard to come by, let alone winning one.  We watched it rain non-stop for 14 hours.  The temperature dropped like a lead zeppelin.  The threat of postponement loomed large. Finally the rain stopped only to watch the thermometer settle in at 38 degrees.   Click Picture to Read More.
