I wasn’t going to write about Richard Sherman.

Tiger coach Ray Riley had no problem with the result, however.

Blue Ridge has been hot as of late, and senior Reggie Stoddard caught fire against Pickens and Eastside last week.

Stoddard scored 31 points against the Blue Flame and 19 against the Eagles in back-to-back wins, earning The Greer Citizen’s and Clock Restaurant/Clock Express’ Player of the Week award.
