Local doctors participate in ice bucket challenge

By Leah Schmalz

Why did eight local doctors sit in the parking lot of Mint Hill Dentistry on Friday as ice water rained down on their heads?

They were part of the Ice Bucket Challenge, designed to raise awareness for ALS, a disease of the nervous system that weakens muscles. In addition to disease awareness, the doctors’ goal was to call attention to the Joe Martin ALS Foundation in Charlotte. The non-profit aims to help those with ALS live actively through free home care services.

“I’d like for everyone to realize the point of doing this is to not just get your doctor wet; it’s to raise money to beat ALS,” said Dr. Earle Sullivan of Mint Hill Dentistry. “In particular I hope we raise awareness for the Joe Martin Foundation.” […]

Rocky River faces North Meck


By Andrew Stark

Who: Rocky River (1-3) at North Meck (3-1)

When: 7 pm

Last Meeting: This is the first meeting

Key Players: Rocky River: quarterback Tyshawn Carter, running backs Elijah Henry, Justice Styron and Nygle Farmer, receiver/defensive back Kendall Lewis, receiver Johari Alexander, lineman Bryson Adams, defensive back Tyrell Robinson, linebacker Larry Blanton; North Meck: quarterback Kendall Coles, running back Emmanuel Wilson, receivers De’Montrez Burroughs and Dalon Tucker, linemen Chris Moore, Preston Ellison and Keon Cezar, defensive backs Nyree Hardy and Amaur Mason

The Keys: This is a battle of teams headed in opposite directions. Behind a strong senior class, North Meck is in the midst of its best season in years. Their 3-1 start has been fueled by a strong defense and the play of quarterback Kendall Coles, do-everything receiver/defensive back De’Montrez Burroughs and the emergence of sophomore running back Emmanuel Wilson, who is going to be a special player. The Ravens got throttled by Charlotte Catholic last week and aside from a late score had little to no offense. Quarterback Tyshawn Carter is a bona fide star, but he’s going to need help if Rocky River is to earn this win. […]

Independence v. Vance


By Andrew Stark

Who: Independence (2-2) at Vance (3-1)

When: 7 pm

Last Meeting: Vance won, 35-0, on Aug. 30, 2012

Key Players: Independence: quarterback Christian McPhail, running back Quantavious McGill, cornerback/receivers Elijah Small and Cedric Stone, linebackers Tylon Clawson, Jerome Cochran and Rob Casanova, defensive ends Christian Colon and Kima Bell; Vance: quarterback Kingley Ifedi, receivers Myles Dorn, Nathaniel Jones and Jonathan Ifedi, tight end Jeremiah Hall, defensive backs Emauel Phillips and Jalen Weddington, linebackers Gerald Nathan, Jr. and Anthony Butler, running back Donnavan Spence, linemen Marlin Edwards, Jirod Carr, Kedrick Brown, Jason Gaston and Jason Cascen

The Keys: The Patriots took until into the fourth quarter to get on the scoreboard before pulling away from West Meck last week. They can ill afford a slow start against the Cougars, who are ranked fifth in’s statewide all classification poll and has playmakers all over the field. It’s another tough out-of-conference match-up for the Patriots, but one they are capable of keeping close, especially if their defense continues to play as it has the past two weeks, where they’ve allowed nine total points.
