SF announces dates

South Fulton has scheduled a pair of banquets to honor athletes at both the middle and high schools.

The South Fulton High School boys’ and girls’ basketball squads, along with the cheerleading team, will be honored on Thursday night at 6:30 at the same venue.
For further information, call the high school at (731) 479-1441.

Red-and-White game
to end Devils’ drills

South Fulton will complete its spring football drills under new head coach Kelly Spivey with a Red and White intra-squad game Friday.
The Devil squad will be equally divided for the contest, which will begin at 7 p.m. at SF Athletic Field.
Admission to the game will be a towel and a bar of soap for the team’s future use.

Ex-Falcon, star TE
inks deal with Titans

NASHVILLE (AP) — The agent for former Atlanta tight end Alge Crumpler says the Pro Bowl tight end has agreed to a two-year contract with the Tennessee Titans.
Crumpler had been courted by two other teams, but agent James Williams said this morning that Crumpler and his wife liked Nashville when they visited last week.
The Titans also have offered the plus of playing with quarterback Vince Young, whose style is similar to Atlanta’s Michael Vick.
Crumpler, a four-time Pro Bowler, was released Feb. 15 by the Atlanta Falcons. He was plagued by knee problems in 2007 and had only 44 catches. He was cut because he was due to count $5.1 million against the cap in 2008.

UT’s McNeil out
after knee surgery

KNOXVILLE (AP) — Tennessee starting center Josh McNeil is out for spring football practice after undergoing arthroscopic surgery last week on his knee.
Head athletic trainer Jason McVeigh said McNeil injured his left knee a week ago.
McVeigh said Friday that McNeil will miss spring practice but should return in time for all offseason conditioning and workouts.
McNeil was an All-SEC honorable mention selection as a sophomore in 2007.
The Vols open spring drills March 11. After spring break, Tennessee resumes practice March 25 with the annual Orange-and-White game April 19.
