It’s all happened quickly for Eastside’s Jaquavious Dodd.

Dodd, who didn’t begin playing football until three years ago, remembers when the switch flipped for him.

“I think it was last year’s game against Travelers Rest,” he said. “That game, I think I had six sacks. I knew at that point I could really do something.”

The Professional Bull Riders (PBR) Challenger Series made a stop in Tryon Friday night.

During two hours of breathtaking action, the bulls were the clear winners, with only four riders making it to the eight-second mark.

By weekend’s end, 26-year-old Keyshawn Whitehorse of Utah stood atop the leaderboard.

With Byrnes basketball sitting at just 4-3 on the season, losers of three of its last four games, head coach Layne Fowler needed to find a spark for his team.

He didn’t have to look far.

KB Henderson rushed for 1,095 yards and 15 touchdowns in his junior year at Blue Ridge.

Blue Ridge star running back KB Henderson didn’t imagine himself playing football.

In fact, Henderson didn’t begin playing the sport until his freshman year of high school. Even then, he still hadn’t found his footing as a running back.

He hadn’t even found the right side of the ball.
