Bears’ Scott Backs Up Big Talk

If football doesn’t pan out for Manny Scott, perhaps he has a future in psychic readings. Central’s 13-7 victory at Springstead Friday night may have surprised many, but the Central senior called it two days earlier. “When we beat Springstead,” said Scott on Wednesday, stressing he didn’t mean if, “that’s when Hernando (County) is going to wake up. When we beat them is when everyone is going to open up their eyes... We’re hungry. All we’ve got to do is beat Springstead and that’s what will make us dominating this season.”

Season Openers Deliver Drama

So much for easing into the season. Friday night saw the official start of the prep football campaign, and three of the four games involving Hernando County teams came down to the wire. Perhaps the most dramatic conclusion occurred at Springstead’s Booster Stadium, where long-downtrodden Central pulled off a shocking 13-7 victory.
