Two of the seniors who will take to the Mike Callas Stadium turf on Friday in the 53rd renewal of the North-South football game are ready to end their prep careers on a positive note.

View all of the photos for purchase! Greg Kellick sees South Hagerstown's football season quickly turning historic, but for all the wrong reasons. "We'll probably set a record for fumbles lost in a season. We might be the lowest scoring team in school history. We might give up the most points," Kellick said. "We could go in the history books, but not for anything good. "The good thing is, there's only one way to go -- and that is up. " Kellick is hopeful that the Rebels hit their rock bottom Monday night, when they were trounced by Walkersville 50-0 at School Stadium in a game that was postponed from Friday.

SMITHSBURG -- Playing smash-mouth football is like Christmas gifts. It's better to give than receive. Unfortunately, the Smithsburg football team probably has its collective jaw wired shut today because it received a lot more than it gave on Saturday in a 51-0 loss to Walkersville. Quentin Ezell ran for 179 yards and three first-half touchdowns, while quarterback Jeremy Musselman threw for three more as the Lions overpowered the Leopards. It brought a sour ending to the day earmarked to rename Smithsburg's football field in honor of Carroll Reid, the Leopards' late, legendary coach.
