Independence v. East Meck.


By Andrew Stark

Who: East Meck (2-3) at Independence (2-3)

When: 7 pm

Last Meeting: Independence won, 38-0, on Sept. 26, 2014

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; East Meck: quarterback Khalil Gilliam, running backs Juan Powell and Khamal Howard, receiver Aaron Walker, linebackers Jonathan Jones, Trey Hodge and Tyler McCall, linemen Cody Allen, Keyshawn Barnes and Xavier Jackson

The Keys: The Patriots have a losing record for the first time since 2010, but hope is on the way. East Meck has a pair of wins, but the next three Independence opponents are a combined 2-12 so they should make a run. The Patriot defense has been a little shaky and the Eagles will try to attack it on the ground with Juan Powell and Khamal Howard, who have combined to run for over 1,000 yards already. If they can find running lanes, they could have another big day. […]

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.” […]
