Football preview tab
just seven days away
The Messenger’s widely-acclaimed annual preseason football tabloid will be a part of next Thursday’s edition of the paper.
The much-anticipated preview section, voted the “Best Special Section” of any kind in the state by the Tennessee Press Association last year, will feature in-depth previews of the Union City, Obion Central, South Fulton and Fulton City football programs.
Information, statistics and photos on 35 teams in all will also included in the tab, including clubs from District 13A, 14A, 13AA and 14AA, along with the Kentucky First District.
Feature stories covering the TSSAA’s new heat policy, the debuting playoff “Z” plan, pre-game prayer and area coaching changes are also among the recommended reading in the section.

New UK mentor Cal
sells Memphis home
MEMPHIS (AP) — Kentucky coach John Calipari has sold his Memphis home, but for less than he paid for it nine years ago.
Documents filed Wednesday by the Shelby County Register of Deeds show Calipari and his wife, Sue Ellen, sold the house last week for just over $1.4 million.
The sale, first reported by Memphis newspapers, was $70,000 below what the Caliparis paid for the house in 2000.
The five-bedroom house went up for sale with an asking price of $1.7 million when Calipari left the Memphis Tigers in April to take the coaching job at Kentucky.
The house has five bedrooms, four baths, two half-baths and swimming pool.
