After 24 seasons together, Ardnt Middle School football coaches Lee Drum and Scott Frank are calling it a career.
The duo is making the 2013 campaign their final on the sidelines, but both are hoping to lead the Redskins to yet another championship.
The pairing between Drum and Frank at Arndt almost never happened, though.
In fact, both men had planned to coach football in high school.
Hickory Crawads third baseman Joey Gallo closed out his first-ever minor league baseball season with a bang on Tuesday.
The 19-year-old Gallo was named the South Atlantic League Player of the Week for the second time this season.
During the week, Gallo hit seven home runs in six games during the week with 11 RBIs, seven runs and three walks.
