RING OF HONOR

SOUTHERN'S STATE 3-AA FOOTBALL CHAMPIONS GET THEIR RINGS

Southern High School celebrated its first state football title in style Friday, presenting state championship rings to players, coaches, school officials and program associates.

On hand for the elaborate two-hour ceremony in the school theater were guest speakers who included departed state title coach Adrian Jones, school coaching legends Chip Gill and Pete Shankle, new coach Darius Robinson and several hundred fans, cheerleaders, marching band and dance team.

Not to mention the 41 players who made the day possible.

They were treated to a video montage tribute recalling the 3-AA state championship win at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem in December and performances by the dance team, cheerleaders and band.

Southern School of Energy and Sustainability — Southern’s official name — principal Kenneth Barnes drew a few laughs during his welcoming remarks when he made it clear the ring presentation evening couldn’t have come sooner. Barnes admitted that players and coaches have pestered him for months asking when the rings would arrive.

Robinson, Southern’s athletic director who moved up from defensive coordinator to the head coaching job when Jones left to become an aide at N.C. Central after the season, admitted he was among the impatient.

Kenseth wins 2nd Chase race

Matt Kenseth just might win a championship with a touch of dominance, not dullness. Kenseth has firmly defended the style of his 2003 championship, stating his one-win season in the final year before NASCAR made the move to the playoff-style Chase format was as meaningful as all the titles collected by Jimmie Johnson or Tony Stewart. He probably won't have to justify anything about his Cup run this season. There are plenty of checkered flags.
