The Lamar County Trojans called for a Red Out and broke out throwback red jerseys with black numerals outlined in white but yellow was the color of the night Friday at Trojan Field as LC dropped to 1-2 under a virtual avalanche of penalty flags as they fell to Mary Persons 20-7.
These were not bad calls by the officials; LC earned them all legitimately.
It appeared the pressure got to the Trojans. LC lost last year due to a controversy over lightning but, this year, LC, though out-athleted on the lines of scrimmage and well short of MP depth-wise, shot themselves in the foot in what was, otherwise, a competitive game. [Full Story »]
The Lamar County Trojans host the Mary Persons Bulldogs in the home opener Friday night at Trojan Field.
The two teams have always been rivals but this game took on added significance after last year’s debacle in Forsyth.
MP built a 29-13 lead but Lamar came roaring back and cut the margin to 29-27. The Trojans were lining up for a two-point conversion at the 1:53 mark of the third period when an MP administrator ran onto the field and halted the game due to lightning. Lightning was visible but well off in the distance.
The game never resumed though the lightning abated. LC never got to try the PAT, lost its appeal to the GHSA and the game went down as a 29-27 loss.
You can bet the bitter taste of highway robbery will be in the Trojans’ mouths when they take the field Friday night.
After graduating 10 seniors following the 2014 season, the new Trojans and Lady Trojans cross country teams opened their seasons on Saturday, August 22 at the 1st Annual Twilight in the Grove hosted by Locust Grove High School.
The field was packed with top 4A and 5A schools, 13 in all, on the hot, muggy evening in Locust Grove. And, the 5K course proved to be challenging as runners were continuously trotting up and over the rolling landscape and through the woods around Locust Grove high and middle schools. Junior Wyatt Harris led the JV Trojans in the first race of the day by earning a medal and finishing 9th overall with a time of 24:13.
Newcomer, Abel Manley was next for the JV Trojans with an overall placement of 28th.

The #7 Lamar County Trojans (1-1) went through long periods of struggle Friday night but still managed to pummel the Pike County Pirates 30-8 in the annual Battle of Potato Creek.
The game, worked by a struggling offiicating crew that never really took command of the game, may have been the longest regulation time contest in high school football history as it ran two hours and 49 minutes. It seemed there was a flag thrown on every play in the second half.
The dislike for each other among the combatants was obvious from the start. There were fisticuffs, borderline hits, one ejection and several instances of players taunting fans.
The #4 ranked Lamar County Trojans took it on the chin Friday night in Macon.
LC's speedy offense, accustomed to turf, went 37 plus minutes of the game without a score on a very muddy field at Ed Defore Stadium before Juan Tucker scored with 2:43 left. The PAT failed, sealing the Trojans fate.
Offensive line play was inconsistent for the Trojans who never really got any push up front. Cutting in the mud was a challenge and there was a noticeable lack of continuity which could be attributed to missing many starters during two preseason scrimmages. LC also struggled in the kicking game, missing two of three PATs and its only field goal attempt. [Full Story »]
Coming off a spirited midnight scrimmage that attracted about 400 fans last week, the LC Trojans will be back on the Trojan Field turf Friday night for a controlled scrimmage with Northside of Columbus.
