editor’s letter

W

ow, eleven years ago while brainstorming in our coach’s office at St. Andrew’s School with Deb Morrell this magazine was born. The Prep Sports Report would be a local magazine to promote Savannah area high school sports. It has been a roller coaster Karl DeMasi ride, but it has been a passion of mine to make this publication a free and reliable source to promote the athletes and teams in our area. Every team and athlete dreams about being in a publication just like their favorite teams and professional heroes. The Prep Sports Report is that source and in full color for the first time ever! Well my dream is still going. With the assistance of Moesch Media and bMacConsulting, the magazine is back, bigger and brighter then ever before. Dean Moesch, Jr., owner of Moesch Media, alumnus of Savannah Country Day and an avid local sports fan approached me and said, “Let’s get this magazine back on the newsstands.� Of course I jumped on this “hanging curveball� and with his helped we have “hit it out of the ballpark!� New to The Prep Sports Report team is Beth McLaughlin, owner of bMacConsulting, who with her expertise in marketing, promoting, and help locating sponsors to make this dream of ours happen. Beth is an alumnus of Calvary Day School and also an avid fan of local high school sports. Her commitment is unbelievable. As my mission has stated in the previous issues, it is the goal of this publication to provide coverage for all sports. We believe that all athletes in any sport should be recognized more often than they are. It starts from the youth leagues all the way to our local professional athletes. All sports require hard work, dedication, and skill. Sports teaches our athletes a lot of life’s valuable lessons and helps relieve stress in our daily adult lives. We will take all local teams and athletes’ stories and triumphs to the public and help give our teams and athletes the awareness they deserve. Thank you for being a part of our vision. The Prep Sports Report looks forward to serving our fine athletes and our community for many seasons to come. Sit back, thumb through and enjoying reading the “BIGGER, BETTER, and BRIGHTER� version of The Prep Sports Report!

What Did I Do On My Summer Vacation?

T

he most famous assignment when we went back to school after a long restful summer was What Did I Do on My Summer Vacation? Well, one local student from Savannah had an exceptional summer making waves. Josh Richardson a junior at Islands High School took to the water with his surfboard and like a “Shark” ate a lot of awards. It all started in April; Richardson paddled out to the surf and won the Junior Longboard and finished second in the Open Longboard at the Florida Surfing Association’s States Championships at Jacksonville Beach and May was an even busier month. Then on May 16th, Josh won the Junior Longboard division at the 28th annual WaveMasters Pro/Am surfing contest in Jacksonville, Florida. He also placed fifth in the Pro Longboard division. On May 23rd, Josh came in second in the Junior Men’s Longboard Division at the MidAtlantic Regional. This qualified him for the Eastern Surfing Association’s finals coming up in September in North Carolina. Then on Memorial Day Weekend Josh competed in the Amateur and Pro Longboard divisions at the Steel Pier Classic at Virginia Beach, Va. Josh made it to the finals of the Noserider division and competed with all ages and came in fourth. On July 9th, Josh won three titles at the first Eastern Surfing Association contest in Georgia. He won the Junior Longboard, Junior Shortboard (ages 15-17) and Open Shortboard (all ages) divisions. In the past year, Richardson has won the Junior Longboard titles in Georgia, South Carolina and Florida. Winning three titles gives Josh the unofficial title as the Longboard Champion in the states of Georgia, South Carolina and Florida. As of this publication, he is leading in the point

system of the Eastern Surfing Association Georgia District, that is comprised of the Junior Men’s division (15-17 year olds), Junior Longboard division (15-17 year olds), and the Open division (any age). With his talent and determination we just might see this surfer riding a wave to a national championship. That would be a great way to end the story of What Did I Do on My Summer Vacation?

T

he main point for the Bulldogs will be to work hard. Head Coach Ulysses Hawthorne enters his 14th season as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Dogâ&#x20AC;? in charge and is looking for his team to be bluecollared workers this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to get after it in the weight room, in preseason conditioning, and then on the field. We are so close every year to making the playoffs. We just have to get over that hump.â&#x20AC;? Beach High School has missed the playoffs by one game, 9 out of the last 11 seasons, according to Coach Hawthorne. In a recent radio interview broadcast over a local station, Hawthorne indicated he has always had a vision of playing at the Georgia Dome. The Macon born Hawthorne played football at Central High before coming to Savannah State College. He got his first break from former Beach High guru Charlie Smith in 1988 and his passion has grown for

the sport. After a short-stint at Jenkins High under Walter Luten, Hawthorne was offered the job at Beach and has not looked back since. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no off season in football; vacation is over when you enter high school,â&#x20AC;? said Hawthorne. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our weight room opens twice a day and the kids know they have to work hard. I work my schedule around theirs,â&#x20AC;? he added. After finishing at .500 with a 5-5 record, the Bulldogs return eight players on offense and six on defense.â&#x20AC;? As I get older the shorter my patience gets,â&#x20AC;? said Hawthorne. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Close only counts in horse shoes.â&#x20AC;? The top two players for the Bulldogs are seniors Larry Murray and Isaac Wright. Quarterback Murray will have junior running backs Maynard Potter and Craig Reed to hand the ball to. Seniors Horace Griffin and Wright will anchor the offensive line. On defense, Hawthorne switched Wright from his center position to middle linebacker with the hopes of his quickness reeking havoc on offense players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only is the kid a good football player, but he is No. 2 in academics for his senior class,â&#x20AC;? Hawthorne said. Maybe that will be the turning point in this season for the Bulldogs, making smart plays at the end of games to get over the hump.

BC Football. The Benedictine Football Team has worked extremely hard since coming under new leadership. With a solid group of young players with talent, they hope to show continuous improvement throughout the 2011 Season. Senior Cadets to watch are Sean Spellman at quarterback, Matt Ginn at running back, Patrick Fogarty and Thacker King on the offensive line, Bobby Crider at defensive back and Jack Autry at linebacker. Underclassmen to watch are wide receiver Mike Huggins, Joseph Ireland at defensive back, Conner Forbes at linebacker and Nicholaus Koncul on the defensive line. Britt brings with him college-level playing experience at Georgia Southern University, which includes the sweet satisfaction of both the 1990 National Championship title, as well as the 1993 Southern Conference Title. Britt also brings over 15 years of coaching experience. 13 of those served across town at Calvary Day School, where as head coach, his record was 32-21 for the 2001 through 2005 seasons.

he current squad of cheerleaders from St. Vincent’s Academy will yell their hearts out this season for the 2011-2012 Benedictine Military School football and basketball squads. The Benedictine cheerleaders are comprised of girls from St. Vincent’s Academy, who are known as the Saints. The squad has seven seniors this year, Willa Bouy, Rebecca Fogarty, Hayle Mathis, Megan Mowers, Elizabeth Mulherin, Emily O’Connor, and Katelyn Whelan. The team attended UCA cheerleading camp this summer where, due to their outstanding performance, the seniors qualified to cheer in the pregame festivities at the Capital One Bowl. In addition, the BC Cheerleaders visited Cheer Savannah for a two-day camp with Mrs. Stephanie Britt.  s 0REP 3PORTS 2EPORT s )SSUE  s 

Furthermore, each year the BC Cheerleaders host a Mini Cheer Camp in July. This year’s camp theme was “BC Mini Camp on Broadway.” The 135 girls in attendance, ages 4 to 13, were from several local elementary and middle schools, and they spent the week learning cheers, chants, dances and stunts. Coach Veiock says of the upcoming season “Our girls have been extremely dedicated this year! We have a senior heavy squad with lots of talent, and all the girls have put in so much work before the season even starts to prepare for the first pep rally and football game. We look forward to supporting the football and basketball teams this year and cheering them to victory!”

K

nown as the oldest orphanage in the country, the recent prowess of the football and basketball programs has made the school very prominent in the Georgia Independent School Association. Trying to build on that reputation will be the football team under the guidance of Head Coach Antwain Turner. His team finished the 2010 season with a 4-7 record. The Bethesda Academy football program has begun to turn out players, who now range in skills to be classified as Division I level football players. Coach Turner will be counting on seniors Marquis Mason at defensive end, Quincey Scott at linebacker and wide receiver, Ray Ferguson at wide receiver and kicker, Rasheik Wilson at running back and linebacker, Ahkeem Holmes at wide receiver and cornerback and Naji Cooley also at wide receiver and cornerback. Underclassmen that will get a lot of experience in the backfield is Shidel Williams, Brenden Carter, and Devonte Taylor. The offensive/defensive lineman will be Henry Brown,

Daniel Carter-Sweatte, Raydell Martin, and Isaac Caesar. David Grayson will see playing time at wide receiver and cornerback. “This year we are preparing to raise our game play to the next level,” said Turner. “We are excited to get back to the gridiron and make a run for the GISA 1AAA playoffs,” said Coach Turner.

e often hear the stereotype cheerleading isn’t a real sport. What is a real sport? Cheerleading requires hard work, dedication, athleticism, constant support from all team mates and there are a variety of important roles within the cheer squad. This in turn makes cheering a legitimate sport. This year the cheerleaders from Providence Christian School will be leading the crowd from the sidelines to root on the Bethesda Academy Blazers football team during the football season. During the basketball season they will cheer on their own boy’s basketball team at Providence Christian. The Providence Christian cheerleaders demonstrated that it takes dedication and hard work to be successful at their sport. Over the summer they worked with a trainer to perfect their gymnastic skills. They taught their routines to the Cheer Cubs, elementary school girls, who will be cheering with the

ible Baptist only had to look outside its gates on Laroche Avenue to find a new football coach. Alan Hall, former offensive coordinator for Savannah State University’s football team, will lead the Braves during the 2011 season. Hall’s team will undoubtedly be a work in progress, as no seniors make up this year’s squad. The underclassmen Coach Hall will count on in the Brave’s backfield will be Mike Blake at quarterback, Asa Nelson and Malik Simmons at running back. Nelson and Simmons will also play linebacker on defense. Austin Lipski and Jacob Brand will anchor the offensive and defensive lines. Luke Long and Keynard Campbell will play double roles at the wide receiver and linebacker positions. Aaron Stiney and Chad Boatwright will also see action as wide  s 0REP 3PORTS 2EPORT s )SSUE  s 

receivers on offense and cornerbacks on defense. As he becomes acclimated to his team, Hall, who backed up former Heisman Trophy Award winner Gino Turretti when he was at the University of Miami, is optimistic but cautious about his team’s chances this season. “Coming off a state title loss, this will be a young team in 2011 and there are no seniors and only a handful of juniors,” said Hall. “This team is athletic, and what they lack in size, they make up for in speed. If we can stay healthy and continue to progress and mature, we could go a long way,” he added.

T

he 2011 version of the Calvary Baptist Day School football team will look to replacing a group of unsung players who just graduated and led the Cavaliers to their first football region title since 2002. The program though has over 70 players out for preseason practice. The kids are buying into the system, but three seniors will carry the ball as far as the team is concerned. With their absence, Head Coach Mark Stroud hopes his three top seniors will take the reigns of the Cavaliers’ hopes and improve on a 2010 record of 8-3. Senior Skylar Strickland will hold down both a linebacker position on defense and running back on offense. Furthermore,

joining him in a two-way spot will be senior Stephen Trull as a defensive lineman and convert on offense in the same capacity. Rounding out another two-way player to watch will be senior defensive back Sam Dunning, who will turn it around on offense as a widereceiver. “The season ahead will be an exciting year in which team unity will be critical to our success,” said Stroud. “We will rely on many guys to make contributions each time we take the field. How well we come together as a strong unit will be the key to our success,” he added.

his summer the Calvary cheerleaders hosted their own cheer camp at Calvary Day School. It was led by former graduate and UGA cheerleader Paige (Martin) Robbins. She also brought along two other UGA cheerleaders to assist in running the camp. The camp was three days long, and it consisted of learning many sideline cheers, stunt routines, individual dances and combined squad dances. On the third day, there was a parent performance in Tippett Gym, and it was extremely successful. Paige and her team leaders did an incredible job of balancing the camp time schedule for cheer skills, team building and spiritual growth with daily devotion and small-group sessions. These years’ team leaders consist of Jessi Wigley as Captain, Madison Bocook as Asst. Captain and Reagan Bocook as team chaplain. These girls will have extra responsibilities and  s 0REP 3PORTS 2EPORT s )SSUE  s 

requirements outside of school practice time in leading the squad for the 2011-2012 season. Head Coach Karen Taylor said, “The squads are excited this year to be planning for the football season, but looking forward to the Homecoming Pep Rally on Friday, October 7th.” This year marks Calvary Day School’s 50th anniversary, and the squads are working hard to make it a memorable, exciting rally for our current school body and alumni. In addition to cheerleading at Calvary Day School, the team has also instituted a requirement that each squad needs to complete a community service project during their season. The team is currently in the process of arranging the JV and Varsity cheer squads to work the Rock-n-Roll Marathon in November and are excited to see how that will all play out according to Coach Taylor.

Head Coach: Rick Tomberlin 2nd Year at School Offense: Multiple I Defense: 4-3 2010 Record: 6-4

S

econd year coaches, who have had successful first-year campaigns, usually have to get over an old adage called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;sophomore jinx.â&#x20AC;? The Effingham County High School football team hopes they can elude the dreaded curse and keep building on a 6-4 record posted last year. Head Coach Rick Tomberlin turned around the fledgling program, which hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a winning season since 2006. Tomberlin came into the program with a high-profile resume most coaches only dream of having and delivered a winning attitude toward not only his team, but the student body and community. The offense for the Rebels in 2011 will see a lot of brand  s 0REP 3PORTS 2EPORT s )SSUE  s 

new faces. With the graduation of the entire backfield, they will be breaking in a new quarterback and as well as replacing both of their top running backs. Looking forward to leading the offense in the ground game will be either senior Cris Harrell or junior Cal Baker. Harrell and his 6-foot-3, 220-pound frame may be the likely candidate to take the job. The running back positions will be led by veteran juniors Cameron Edwards and Markese Herbert, who will play mostly fullback. Getting the bulk of work at tailback are sophomore TyJohn Williams and senior Jacob Rader. The offensive line will return two experienced players in senior Jackson Corbin and junior Marlon Counts. The Rebels will look to get the ball in the sure hands of seniors Colby Pierce and McCorvin McFarlin. The defense will be a different story. The Rebels have two returning starters on the defensive squad with a lot of experience, senior linebacker L.T. King and cornerback junior Stewart Hamilton. The Rebels will also look to several underclassmen who are ready to step in and prove themselves. Some early season games before key region matchups should enlighten Tomberlin and his coaching staff as they break down films and make adjustments for their season opener. Tomberlin is an experienced coach with impeccable credentials to prove it. You can bet the Rebels will be prepared and ready to rumble on every Friday night.

Competitive Cheerleading: What It Takes By: Mallory Ansel, Junior

I

t takes more than a set of pom-poms and a Friday night football game to be a competition cheerleader. Cheerleaders need to posses the ability to balance themselves not simply while performing a stunt, but in life as well. Balancing practice, tumbling, academics, and church proves difficult during the year. Being a straight â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aâ&#x20AC;? student, I realize that academics are vital to my future success in whatever I choose to do. Katie Ward, our competition cheerleading coach at ECHS, understands the pressure on us and ensures that valuable time is not wasted at practice. By doing this, Coach Ward allows us plenty of time for us to balance our other important responsibilities. Contrary to stereotypes, competition cheerleaders have a strenuous summer in preparation for the upcoming season. By making a year-long commitment, we know the hard work and dedication it will take to succeed: summer practices,

weekly tumbling classes, and mandatory practices everyday after school. Without all of these commitments, however, we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to achieve the success we seek. Competitive cheerleading teaches many lessons, the most important to me being teamwork. Having competed as a gymnast for ten years before I began cheerleading, I was used to competing for myself. Now part of a team of twenty, I realize that every decision I make affects the team in some way. I constantly have to think about what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing and the impact it has on others. One doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily have to like everyone they encounter, but he/she has to learn to amiably coexist with that person to achieve a significant goal. As a team, we practice, we commit and we strive to bring Effingham County High School another trophy home.

roves finished last year with a 6-5 overall record and a 5-3-region record, which qualified the Rebels for a state playoff game. The last time the Rebels made the state playoffs was in 2006. Head Coach Greg Hunter has been around a longtime. A former Rebel himself and the defensive coordinator in 2006, was glad to see his team finally get back to the playoffs. “We struggled early and gained momentum towards the end of the season winning 3 out of our last 4 region games,” said Hunter. “The kids hung tough and it paid off.” This year the Rebels will have to rely on an experienced offensive line to carry the load according to Head Coach Greg Hunter. Seniors Alan and Chris McKinnon will be the anchors on the offensive line. Groves graduated most of their skill positions on offense. Defensively, the Rebels have a solid core returning. “We will be looking to some of last year’s returning defen-

sive players, seniors Juwan Johnson, Dartanya Bruin, Rasheed Brown, and Paul Glover to lead our defense along with other senior players Kadesh Armstrong and Janard Coney,” said head coach Greg Hunter. Hunter’s outlook for the season is optimistic. He stated, “We graduated a lot of skilled people and will have to change what we’ve done in the past to utilize our strengths. Our strengths this year will be our line play, speed on defense, and the experience of making the playoffs. When you have success it carries over to the next season.” Hunter was chosen by the Atlanta Falcons as their “Coach of the Week” for the week ending November 8, 2010. The fivewin improvement on last year’s record was the greatest improvement for any AAAAA school in the state of Georgia. The Rebels behind departed quarterback Chris Cutter will be hard pressed to match last year’s success story, but Hunter, who has began to distinguish himself as a player’s coach seems to have the ability to push his squad beyond expectations and this upcoming season should be no exception. 0REP 3PORTS 2EPORT s )SSUE  s  s

uring the school year, school always comes first for me. My family is very supportive of school and cheerleading. Often, families make sacrifices for both school and sports. Cheerleading is a very important part of my life, but without good grades, I would be ineligible for participating in any sports. Having good grades should be a priority for any athlete. Family, school, and cheering to make me a well-balanced student, and each play their part in my high school success. There may be a night where I have a really intense game and have homework or a test to study for. During these difficult times, I normally sacrifice a couple of hours of sleep because maintaining a high GPA is important if I plan to get into a great college. School and family go hand in hand in my household, because my mom is really big on education. Whenever I need help, my mom is always there for me. I have called on her often, and this has resulted in me being an honor student. Without my momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expectations of high performance, I would not be doing, as well as I am academically or athletically. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thankful for her pushing me to achieve. Cheerleading is a sport that I have a strong passion for. I  s 0REP 3PORTS 2EPORT s )SSUE  s 

take it very seriously as if it were part of my school work, because I love and respect the sport. Without cheerleading, my four years of high school would have been very dull. Although it may seem that cheerleading is not academically based, I learn social skills that will help me in college and my future career. On my squad, I am the team captain, which comes with a lot of responsibilities. I have to worry about the whole team and myself. I know there have been plenty of practices that were rough for us and made us all feel like crying. These times made us stronger and helped us to become a better team. Our coach empowers us by letting us help in making decisions for the team. Although it can be a little stressful with 20 girls, we love each other and our coach. This is my last year of high school. I have finally made it to senior status. During my four years, I have learned that school, family, and cheer go hand- in-hand. Not one person can be singled out as being dominant in my life. There is a time and place for everything. You have to be mature and have a strong mind to balance out your life during the school year. If you give 100% in everything that you do, you will be successful. I learned to balance family, school, and cheerleading, and it helped me to have a successful and enjoyable four years of high school.

A Lot Of New Warriors Looking To Find Their Groove

J

enkins had a good season last year, going 8-3 with the only loss in Region 3-AAAAA coming against perennial state powerhouse Camden County in a 31-10 setback. The Warriorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; season ended in the first round of the state playoffs in a loss to visiting Colquitt County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to get that first practice over with,â&#x20AC;? Adams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of new faces, and we need to get back into that groove.â&#x20AC;? The Warriors graduated seven starters on defense, but return about seven offensive starters, including quarterback A.J. Gilford and running back Terron Bradham. Also back is senior Rashamel Lewis, a dynamic offensive and defensive lineman, who has some talented fellow two-way linemen in Braden Dobbins and Jovan Saunders. On defense, senior Jameel Burroughs who according to Coach Adams is coming on strong during summer workouts. Another Warrior

who is a stellar defensive back returning and a multipurpose offensive threat, you could consider this football player a true â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ironmanâ&#x20AC;? is senior Mason Hill â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mason hardly ever comes off the field for us,â&#x20AC;? said Adams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is so talented that he is a threat whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on offense, defense, and special teams.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We lost a whole lot to graduation last year on defense and the good young kids who are back need to step up this year,â&#x20AC;? said Adams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The offense is in pretty good shape, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not quite sure what we have. One moment we look all right and then the next time I look, the players are all out of position,â&#x20AC;? he added. One of the problems Adams has is his logistics. The Warriors donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a complete complement of feeder schools, and he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really know who his freshmen ball players will be. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go into August 1st trying to get your team into shape and know who your players are,â&#x20AC;? said Adams. Adams, a Georgia Southern University graduate, played football for the legendary Erk Russell and knows what it takes to have a winning program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to always focus on what is ahead of you and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look back,â&#x20AC;? said Adams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coaches have a tremendous amount of influence on players and I have always thought I was a better student of the game, rather than a player.â&#x20AC;? With that type of attitude, it is no wonder the athletic program at Jenkins has been so successful over the past few years.

Atomsmashers Learning Football and More

J

amie Baldwin lost his father at age six and has been fighting an uphill battle ever since. Through all his struggles, football has been the one stable thing in his life. It has taught him about life experiences and with his strong religious believes, his current Sol C. Johnson football team is getting the benefit of his life lessons. The Atomsmashers had their summer camp down at Waycross and Coach Baldwin, along with his staff came away impressed with his team that finished the 2010 campaign with a 2-8 record. “We lost four of our eight games last year by seven points or less,” said Baldwin. “If we can cut back on turnovers and mistakes, then we can turn things around.” Looking to make some of those dreams come true will be senior lineman Malachi Singleton. The 6-foot-

3, 280 pounder has improved his game tremendously since his sophomore year, according to Baldwin. On offense, the development of Shyheim Roberts brings a glimmer at the quarterback position. The coaching staff was impressed with the qualities exhibited by the junior at the camp and hope it transfers over to this season. Baldwin played his high school and college football in the state of Alabama at Troy State. One of the things football players are known for is the off-season conditioning programs. “I’m a Health and Physical Education teacher at Johnson and we’ve been selling the kids on our weightprogram,” said Baldwin. “I’ve talked about Caleb in the Bible and told them how he was still fighting when he was 85 years old. He was a tough warrior and I want my team to be that way.” Malachi Singleton

C

heering as a Sol. C. Johnson High School Varsity Cheerleader for the past three years has been quite an adventure for me. Cheerleading is a sport where you strive to better your team and yourself. Being a cheerleader also means you must have very good time management skills. In order to balance practice, school, games, church, etcetera, I must personally make a colorcoated schedule so I know what needs to get done at what time. Doing so helps me remain focused on the ultimate goal of graduating high school. Typically, cheerleading season begins in June of one year and ends around the beginning of March of the following year. Our season is so long, due to the fact that our squad cheers for football and basketball seasons and also tournaments. Around the month of May, I begin conditioning for the upcoming cheer season. Running, jumping, and lifting weights are a part of my weekly routine. During our summer practices, our squad moves forward with the goal of perfecting cheers and chants for the upcoming season. We also prepare for our attendance at the UCA Cheer Camp in July. I am proud to say that currently we are the 2011 Camp

Champs and have been for the last three years. Changes I would like to see for my squad as far as competition is actually having the opportunity to compete. I strongly believe if my team was to enter, we would all work hard to win. One of the most important lessons Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned over the years concerning competitive cheerleading is that you must believe in yourself. Philippians 4:16 says; â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.â&#x20AC;? What that means to me is if you believe in yourself and in your team, no matter what the situation is, everything will work out in your favor. Many people view competitive cheerleading as not being a sport. They see cheerleaders as just the girls with beauty, the loudest mouth, and no athletic ability. Well, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here to say that is categorically â&#x20AC;&#x153;FALSE.â&#x20AC;? Yes, we are there to keep the crowd excited and to encourage the players, but cheerleading is also the perfect balance of hard work, dedication, athleticism, and teamwork. The only way our squad can pull off precise stunts and have successful performances is to have faith in your teammates and faith within yourself.

emorial Day School plays under the umbrella of the Georgia Independent High School Association. Over the past few years, especially in football, the Blue Thunder has made it a point to be one of the elite teams. This year’s team seems to set on that same course as they try to make an unprecedented fourth-straight trip to the state finals. Leading the way at the running back position will be Lamir Cohens. He led the team last year with over 1,000 yards. He heads a list of seniors that have intentions on travelling down the road to another state title. Head Coach Michael Thompson, a former Memorial Day School graduate and Georgia Southern University football player has brought a certain “swagger” to the school and each year more and more players find their way to the Savannah campus. Other players hoping to continue the tradition will be James Shuman and Earl Washington. This year’s primary target will be 6-foot-6 inch sophomore, wide-receiver Deric Wright.

he Memorial Day School Cheerleaders have had an eventful summer. They have been practicing the cheers and routines to support the football program that has made four straight trips to the state championship. This past summer the girls were rewarded with an invitation to participate in the pregame festivities for the Capital One Bowl football game in January. They earned the honor by winning a “Superior Team Award” at the UCA camp this past summer in Orlando, Florida. Furthermore, cheerleader Ashley Williams was named All-American. “The cheerleader’s season lasts all season long and they work really hard at it. That’s why I

wasn’t surprised that they earned this honor. It is attributed to their hard work and dedication,” Athletic Director Mark Sussman. The Blue Thunder cheerleaders are comprised of 21 girls. They are led by Captains Heaven Dust and Victoria Owens. Team members are Lauren Griggs, Taylor Jackson, Janesha Warren, Taylor Allen, Elexis Brown, Ciara Burnham, Denisha Green, Je Woon Kim, Julia McPherson, Tiffany Bowers, Karrie Farrar, Britney Hildreth, Jasmine Jones, Ali Kent, Megan Wallace, Rachel Wallace, Ashley Williams, Pam Fields, and Haley Pierce.

Wildcats Looking For A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winning Imageâ&#x20AC;?

W

hen second-year coach Lyman Guy took over the daunting task of being the top man in the football program at Richmond Hill in 2010, he knew he had to change a culture of mediocrity and losing. The plan he implemented came not from a coach, who came in with impeccable credentials as a college or professional athlete, but from one who knew after graduating from high school that he wanted to be a head football coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My biggest challenge to overcome was history,â&#x20AC;? said Guy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The team was not used to winning, as well as the campus and the Board of Education. I knew I had to turn the program around and change the attitude of my team.â&#x20AC;? Guy, who spent time in law enforcement, along with stints at Robert Toombs, Vidalia and Wayne County. During

his 15 years of coaching, nine has been as a head coach and he has been a part of four State Championship teams. The Brewton-Park College graduate has a knack for getting things accomplished and he wants it to begin this year. The Wildcats have one of the toughest schedules of any team in this region this year. Not only do they play three Region 3-AAAAA teams to open up the season, but there is Liberty County, Glynn Academy, Ware County and Brunswick in their own region. The Wildcats will depend on some key returning players to handle this intimidating schedule. Two senior running backs considered by many coaches as good as they get are TJ Franklin and Alex Cruz. According to Coach Guy TJ will be the workhorse in the backfield along while the elusive Alex Cruz will be a threat anywhere he lines up. The defense will rally around standout seniors Conner Beeson and Tre Thomas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This group of seniors is getting a lot of attention,â&#x20AC;? stated Guy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Richmond Hill was use to playing a single-A schedule and I wanted to make the team tougher,â&#x20AC;? said Guy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have the chemistry and the correct potential to have a good football season,â&#x20AC;? he added.

he Blue Jackets took to the field last year with a lot of determination and heart. The Savannah High Blue Jackets are buzzing that they can improve on last year’s record. The program improved from 0-10 in 2009 to 2-8 in 2010. Head Coach David Jackson enters his fourth season and like last year only had three weeks to get his team ready for the first game against Groves High School on August 19th. This year’s edition of Blue Jackets football will be more experienced and quicker on defense. Due to a small turnout the  s 0REP 3PORTS 2EPORT s )SSUE  s

theme for the 2011 Savannah High team will be “Ironman” football. A good percentage of players will have to play offense, defense and special teams. Like most of the schools in this area “The High” will count on key returning players. Key players returning for the Blue Jackets on offense are junior quarterback Javonte Spivey and senior running back Barron Smith. On defense, they will have senior defensive end Kavon Freeman, who is 6-6 and 240 pounds. Freeman will also play tight end on offense. Another “Ironman” will be senior teammate James Kittles. Kettles will be on of the field opposite Freeman as a wide receiver and then will turn around and play free safety in the defensive backfield.

If you are being seriously recruited by a school, they will invite you to make an official visit (where travel, room, and board are paid during one of their home weekends. Continue phone contact with schools. Some schools ask their top recruits to verbally commit to attending during the spring or summer before their senior year. Most schools like to be finished recruiting by the end of the volleyball season. The thing to remember is that a commitment is not binding until a National Letter of Intent (NLI) and Offer of Financial Aid is signed by the recruit. The first official signing day for VB is typically in early February and extends into August. Recruits may change their mind about a school after theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made a verbal commitment, but not after signing the NLI. If they do not attend the school they sign with or transfer before one year is completed, they will lose at least a year of eligibility. Players must also understand that being brought to campus on an official visit does not constitute an offer of a scholarship. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL YOUR SENIOR

YEAR TO MAKE FIRST CONTACT OR REGISTER FOR THE CLEARINGHOUSE. There are so many minor details for students to know about the recruiting process that thousands will never know. Recruiting classes are typically 200-300 players per year. Most recruiting is finished by April each year. Many coaches attending USA Volleyball tournaments in April and later are looking at juniors and sophomores, as well as standout freshman. Coaches still looking at Seniors in the spring may have had some lack of continuity in their recruiting (maybe a coach left), had a player transfer out of school in the spring, may be an NAIA school or lower level NCAA program, or have some other circumstance. There are lots of questions Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure that you have regarding the recruiting process. ** Alex M.

hey’re back for another run at a state title. So, don’t sell the Savannah Christian Preparatory School football program anything but a ticket to the Georgia High School State Association football state finals. You can count on Head Coach Donald Chumley having his Red Raiders ready to seek another run at capturing the elusive Class “A” football title 2011. The Red Raiders are coming off a 13-2 season and have graduated some stars, but there are some key returning players who the opponents will have to deal with. “Our

Raider family lost a lot of good, solid football players from last year’s team especially on defense,” said Chumley. “Many players and some young players must step up early on in this season if the Raiders are to go deep into the playoffs once again in the 2011.” The Red Raiders will be lead by a strong senior class. Returning on defense is stand out nose guard DeAngelo Brown, strong safety Nardo Govan, and cornerback Will Austin. Govan and Austin will also be a threat on offense to go the distance scoring a touchdown anytime they touch the ball. Throw in experienced quarterback Jonathan Chamblee who saw a substantial amount of playing time last year and you’ve got another big threat to score. Savannah Christian football is no stranger to college recruiters. Before the season even started seniors DeAngelo Brown and Nardo Govan have gained their attention. Brown had has received offers from some top ACC, Big East and SEC schools such as Georgia Tech, Louisville, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt and South Florida. Govan has an offer to ponder from Mississippi State, but you can bet by the end of the season there will be more on the table.

These girls have also been practicing since June learning cheers and preparing for the season. Senior cheerleaders who will be leading the squad are Megan Andrews, Katie Brunson, Samantha Buck, Avery Edwards, and Naomi Rivera. In July, they attended the UCA Cheerleading Camp that was held in the Upper School Eckburg Center. During the camp, they learned more cheers, band dances, sideline dances, as well as a choreographed  s 0REP 3PORTS 2EPORT s )SSUE  s 

routine that will be performed at future Pep Rallies. Furthermore, at camp, six cheerleaders from Savannah Christian Preparatory School tried out for the All-American squad, in which three made the team. Those three included: Avery Edwards, Hannah O’Malley, and Scotland Mitchell. These ladies now have the opportunity to travel in December 2011 to London, England to participate in the New Year’s London Day Parade. “The team is enthused and excited about getting this season started, as well as representing Savannah Christian Preparatory School” said Co-Head Coach Debbie Fairbanks. The other head coach is Charita N. Hardy.

ach year, Savannah Country Day School takes a cautiously optimistic view of the upcoming season. This year seems to follow the same pattern as the team tries to make another run at the Georgia High School Association’s Class-A title. With only four seniors of notoriety at this time, the Hornets will have to depend on the four veteran’s returning from Coach Dennis Coyle last year’s squad. Running backs Alex Sovchen and Hamilton Pirkle, join tight-end Ron Berry and offensive lineman Galen Schneider on a team hit hard

by graduation. The most glaring hole to be filled will be that left by star quarterback Tate O’Connor. The Auburn-bound player was granted a walk-on tryout from the NCAA’s nationally ranked top team from last season. Ready to fill the void is Stu Sligh. “We are a young team that will be replacing a lot of starters on both sides of the ball,” said Head Coach Dennis Coyle. “We will rely on our seniors to lead us, and will need our underclassmen to play well to return to the playoffs.”

The Savannah Country Day Hornets attended the UCA cheer camp in Jekyll Island this summer. They received second-place honors for a routine learned at the camp. Since receiving this honor, sophomore Elizabeth Bowden and senior Waverly Reeves have an opportunity to compete in London this fall as part of UCA All-star team. The Hornets hosted mini camps for ages 4 to 11 year olds. The squad is more than ready to cheer their football team to victory this fall. This year’s squad is under the direction of 1st year Head Coach Cristy Ammerman. The Hornets will be led by sophomore Captain Elizabeth Bowden and junior Co-captain Sarah Boland. “The girls worked real hard this summer and did a great job at summer camp,” said Ammerman. “They are looking forward to the football season.”

eing a cheerleader is more then just showing up on Friday night. There’s a lot of preparation such as learning routines, cheers, tumbling, and dance that goes into becoming a good cheerleader. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication. This summer several of our local cheerleading teams went to camp to perfect their performances that will be seen at football and basketball games. One of the most popular cheerleading camps is the Universal Cheerleading Associations Camp. Commonly known as the UCA camp, teams get comprehensive instruction and it’s a chance for teams to bond outside of a school setting. The camp covers all facets of cheerleading from stunts, dances, jumps, cheers, and sideline routines for all athletic events.

his season the young Mustangs will be bucking for a winning season. The Mustangs will gallop out of the gate and hope to maintain their speed throughout this season. They will face a tough pack of opponents down the stretch. Two solid race horses in that pack will be cross-town rival Effingham County High School and cross-county rival Statesboro. Head Coach Donnie Revell hopes history doesn’t repeat itself again in 2011 as the Mustangs try to turn around their misfortunes of 2010. They open the season up against Jenkins High (8-3) of Savannah, probably the second best team in Region 3-AAAAA besides Camden County. Playing such a strong opponent to start the season is a tough assignment for a team seeking recognition, but the Mustangs are determined to “buck” things around for a winning season. The main thing that should be on the mind of the Mustangs is trying to find more offense this year. They did scamper to pull off two victories last year against stronger opponents when they defeated Groves by a 17-6 count and Johnson 27-22. South Effingham has seven players coming back on  s 0REP 3PORTS 2EPORT s )SSUE  s 

offense and seven on defense. Head lining those returnees on defense are senior linebackers Justin McIntyre and Chris Mack. McIntyre also will play tight end along with four starting linemen who are, junior Alex Call at center, junior Stephen Wilson at a guard and tackles senior Jordan Summitt and junior Andrew Leahy. The Mustangs will improve offensively when you add in one of the most talented running backs in the area, junior Josh Mercer, who run for approximately 1,500 yards in the last two seasons. The 175 pounder will also play safety on defense. Mercer is considered a legitimate D-1 prospect and is one of the fastest kids in the state on the track. He tallied over 1,000 all-purpose yards last, while scoring nine touchdowns South Effingham will be using players on both sides of the ball. One such Ironman playing both ways will be senior Spencer Alford. The five-foot-10 inch strong safety on defense will also have to stretch his wings out in the widereceiver position to give his quarterback a good downfield presence when the team gets its offense on the field. Senior wide receiver Dontavious Young will give a good size target for the quarterbacks with his 6-foot-1, 175-pound frame. Young is the one player wgi could give Mercer some running room if he can consistently be a threat in the downfield passing game. Vying for the quarterback job will be senior Tory Hunter and junior Brandon James.

heerleading to me isn’t just a sport or a hobby, it’s my life. It all started 9 years ago when I was in the second grade and started taking a gymnastics class. Shortly thereafter I became a competitive gymnast and competed for the next 4 years. I wanted to do something different so I tried out for cheerleading at South Effingham Middle School. Now I’ve been cheering competitively for 5 years in South Effingham schools and for 2 years at Cheer Savannah All-stars. As much as I love the Friday night lights, it’s what happens on Saturdays and Sundays that I love the most. Competitive cheerleading for me is year round. I’m either practicing for South Effingham High School or Cheer Savannah almost every day of the week. Through all of my injuries over the years, the many hours I practice a week, all of my blood sweat and tears, I know it will all be worth it the moment that I step on the competition mat. Competitive cheerleading to me is a 2 minutes and 30 second adrenaline rush. Every time I compete it’s like going up to bat in the bottom of the ninth with bases loaded and full count, you have no do-over’s.. It’s now or never, so you better give it all you got!

Above are my amazing teammates of the South Effingham High School Varsity cheerleading squad. This year, we have all come together as a family. I have cheered with many of these girls for several years and I feel like I can call all of them my best friends. Anytime we are together, we have such a great time and these are memories that I will carry with me forever

his year St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School changed their nickname to the Lions. The team bore the name â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saintsâ&#x20AC;? on their respective jerseys for a many a season, but the mascot was dressed as a Lion. So this year the school unified its nickname and mascot. Playing in the South Carolina Independent Association format has been a tough assignment for the team over the years, usually winding up in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roaringâ&#x20AC;? success. The Loins got to the playoffs and posted an 8-4 record last year. Leading rushers, Oliver Hubbard and Taylor Miller and all-state wide receiver Andrew Smith will be hard to replace. The Lions will rely on some key seniors returning and some of the underclassmen seem to be ready, willing and

able to challenge their SCISA opponents this year. Second-year Head Coach Brock Miller lost 14 seniors from the last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team, but returns full-back Ashton Johnson, who literally will be called on to carry the load this year. Other seniors who will be a big part of are Ryan Hunt, Miles Robertson, Hunter Tingley, Aaron Solender, Grant Little, and Nick Hall. Underclassmen who will fill other key positions are Taylor Faulk, James Ferencsik, Conner Field, Sascha Tymchyshyn and Cole Beaudreau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have an offensive line that is young, but our senior back field should lead the offense,â&#x20AC;? said Brock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our defense should be the strength of the team,â&#x20AC;? he added.

W

hen the Varsity football team is fighting its way to victory ten yards at a time, we fight behind them. When the Angle Squad is practicing for the upcoming pep rally, we cheer with them. When the classes spirit their way to a blue ribbon on homecoming, we spirit them on. We are the St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Varsity Cheerleading squad of 2011. This year we are comprised of ten seniors, two sophomores, and two freshmen. Together we have competed in dozens of competitions and cheered at almost one hundred games. Because of the all-inclusive sports of St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and the early introduction to school spirit because of the Angel Squad, most of us have cheered together since our early childhood. Over the past decade, we have grown to become not just 2nd-in-state cheerleaders, but a team. This year we collectively decided to increase spirit in and out of the school, so we held and participated in three cheerleading summer camps as well as a Varsity Squad choreography/stunting camp. This is the first year that the Varsity Squad will assist in coaching the Angel Squad. Since the majority of the Varsity squad is in fact graduating in the coming year, we want to make sure that the St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spirit lives on in all the classes below us. The newest addition to the team and to the St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family is our coach, Megan Anderson. Megan has coached for

the St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s middle school squad as well as the ever-cute Angel Squad in years past. This summer, she choreographed our competition routine, and we cannot wait to see what we will bring home from the SCISA State Championship in November! However, the most exciting change to the team has not been the addition of two freshmen and a new coach, but the official change of the St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mascot from a Saint to a Lion. Changing the words to cheers is easy enough, changing the way we spirit is the fun part. A group of lions is a pride. A pride is exactly how we see ourselves (as a squad and as a school). Furthermore, pride is what we expect to bring to the school as a whole. No one can mess with the pride of lions, nor can anyone discourage the pride that the Varsity Cheerleading Squad has in its school. Because we do not care how silly we have to act to put spirit into the school or how difficult a stunt might be, we always strive to represent St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with pride. Meaning, we do not give half of our effort half of the time. We give 100% of what we have every day. That way, at the end of each practice, when we end in a huddle we can sincerely say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good job!â&#x20AC;? While sometimes we see defeat, we always come away knowing that we did everything to the fullest, which is why we stand and cheer, rain or shine, win or loss for our teams. In all possible meanings of the word, our â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;prideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is more solid than ever before. 0REP 3PORTS 2EPORT s )SSUE  s  s

O

ver the past five years, Windsor Forest High School’s football program has made five straight appearances in the Georgia High School State Association’s football playoffs. Second-year Head Coach Jason Roundtree and the Knights look to make it six in a row during the 2011 season. In Roundtree’s first year as head coach of the Knights, he guided them to a 6-5 overall record and kept the playoff streak alive. The Knights will rely on some key senior players to make the 2011 season another successful one. They are Jamari Ford, John Trotta, Silas Frasier, Aaron Crawford,

Aaron Hughes, Brandon Spears, and Deandre Eason. Other players to watch our Esai Morrison, Tremayne Traywick, Craig Sheffield, Nicholas Harris, and Patrick Harris. Roundtree said, “We got a good nucleus back and gained a lot of experience last year.” Coach Roundtree is very optimistic that the Knights will be in every game. He said, “Everyone is chasing Camden County. I feel that we should be competitive in each of the games we play. I don’t feel anyone outside of Camden is going to be dominating and I would not be surprised if we have 9 or 10 games decided by 7 points or less. It is going to be a very tight year for our region’s playoff spots.” 0REP 3PORTS 2EPORT s )SSUE  s  s

Injuries: To Tell or Not to Tell By Brian Tuten, ATC St. Joseph/Candler Sports Medicine

A

thletic Trainers make critical decisions on an athleteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return to play. They rely on the athlete for the history, signs, and symptoms of each individual injury. Using this information, along with an examination, the athletic trainer determines the extent of an injury. Depending on the findings, an Athletic Trainer may refer an athlete to a physician or decide to rehabilitate the individual himBrian Tuten, ATC self/herself. It is an athleteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibility to report all injuries to their Athletic Trainer or  s 0REP 3PORTS 2EPORT s )SSUE  s 

coach. Athletes should report any abnormal signs and symptoms on all injuries. Most high school athletes just want to play, no matter the cost. However, not reporting an injury or not telling your Athletic Trainer all of your signs and symptoms may put you at risk for more serious injuries. Athletes must understand that all signs and symptoms are important to the treatment of the injury, no matter how small or insignificant the athlete may think it to be. Certain injuries may require an athlete to sit out for a certain period of time, even after they are symptom free. If the athlete does not report these symptoms, an injury may become more serious and even require hospitalization. Your Athletic Trainer is there for your health and well being. Keep in mind that even the smallest of injuries can lead to critical health problems in the future if they are not treated correctly today. Next time you consider hiding injuries, remember it may cost you your future in sports.


Recycle

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle... Is the message from Chatham County’s Resource Conservation Education Center located at 1321 Eisenhower Drive

Three great ways YOU can eliminate waste and protect your environment!

W

aste, and how we choose to handle it, affects our world’s environment -- that’s YOUR environment, everything that surrounds you including the air, water, land, plants, and man-made things. And since by now you probably know that you need a healthy environment for your own health and happiness, you can understand why effective waste management is so important to YOU and everyone else. The waste we create has to be carefully controlled to be sure that it does not harm your environment and your health.

WHAT EXACTLY IS “WASTE”? Simply speaking, waste is anything discarded, rejected, surplused, abandoned, or otherwise released into the environment in a manner (or quantity) that could have an impact on that environment.

HOW CAN YOU HELP? You can help by learning about and PRACTICING the three R’s of waste management: Reduce, reuse, and recycle! Practicing all three of these activities every day is not only important for a healthy environment, but it can also be fun too. So let’s take a minute right now to learn more about waste and waste management, so you can become a key player in making our world a safe and healthy place.

REDUCE Reduce/Reduction: to make something smaller or use less, resulting in a smaller amount of waste. “Source reduction” is reducing waste before you purchase it, or by purchasing products that are not wasteful in their packaging or use. A key part of waste “reduction” is “conservation” - using natural resources wisely, and using less than usual in order avoid waste. You can practice reduction by selecting products that do not have to be added to landfills or the waste stream in general. This is really easy to do... First and foremost, buy and use less! If all the other people on the Earth used as much “stuff ” as we do in the United States, there would need to be three to five times more space just to hold and sustain everybody ... WOW! So buy only what you need and use all of what you buy. Or make sure that when you are through with something, you pass it along to other people who can continue to put it to good use. This is especially important when it comes to items where disposal is difficult or could be particularly dangerous to our environment, such as paint and chemicals (cleaners, strippers, pesticides, herbicides, etc.). Start making wise “package” selections. Why is it important to consider how something is “packaged” when you consider what to buy? You can reduce waste by selecting products that are not wasteful in their “packaging”. The package surrounding the

0REP 3PORTS 2EPORT s )SSUE  s  s 


product really only needs to be designed to protect the product from damage, keep it clean and sanitary, and present product information. Yet many manufacturers make the packaging far more elaborate (and expensive!) than necessary with the hope that it will attract your attention or give the appearance that the product inside is better than it’s competitors. So keep the following package-related tips in mind no matter what you are buying: Precycle by purchasing products in materials/ packaging that can be readily recycled. Flashy and fun packaging costs more, usually adds little or no value to the product, and (worst of all!) can do considerable harm to our environment by creating more waste or waste disposal difficulties. So whenever you have a choice, put plain and recyclable package high on your list to reduce packaging waste in our environment. Avoid single-serve containers whenever possible. You can buy juice or water in large recyclable bottles or cans and then divide it up into smaller portions in reusable, washable containers as you need it at home or to take with you. And if you want to take juice or water with you on your bike rides or to the gym, just take it along in your own reusable sports bottle. With regard to buying bottled water, first determine if you really even need to buy bottled (packaged) water. City water (and clean well water) is usually just as healthy, much cheaper, and may even be safer than bottled water products. Think BIG! Buying in “bulk” (a large amount that is not divided into separate containers) gives you the best “product to package” ratio. Many stores allow shoppers to scoop out the amount they need of bulk goods like nuts or coffee. This considerably reduces waste and packaging materials. Or you can buy in bulk by selecting bigger quantities in a single box or package -- for example, buy the largest box of toothpaste, dishwasher detergent, or cereal, rather than a series of small boxes. This not only reduces the waste (from having to throw out the old containers) but it will also save you money. Packaging is expensive, so buying in larger volumes reduces the unit cost. Buy concentrates rather than diluted products- the result is less waste for disposal when it is empty. Refuse store bags! When you buy one or two items at a store, carry them out in your hands; or take a reusable bag with you to carry the items you buy. And don’t forget to take your old plastic and paper bags back to the grocery store for reuse or recycling. Most grocery stores have convenient paper and plastic recycling bins located near the entrance. Use durable goods longer. Durable goods are sturdy things like furniture or household appliances that can (and should)  s 0REP 3PORTS 2EPORT s )SSUE  s 

be used for many years. You can save money and reduce waste by keeping these items longer and repairing them when they break, rather than buying new ones. Use durable items rather than disposable items whenever possible. For example, select reusable razors rather than the disposable one that you can only use a few times and then have to throw away. Say NO to junk mail! Call toll-free numbers in unwanted catalogs and ask to be removed from mailing lists. Whenever possible, use the Internet to obtain (and pay) bills, news, catalogs, stock reports and other information that usually comes to your house in a paper format. Reducing paper reduces waste. Start a garden. Food that you grow yourself does not have to be “processed” or “packaged”, and no fossil fuels are needed to get it to the store and then to your house. Start a compost or http://kids.niehs.nih.gov/worms.htm vermiculture to transform your household garbage (food wastes, coffee grounds, etc), into a rich earth-like material that can be added to a garden to help plants grow. Grass, leaves, paper, and some other types of food can naturally decay and turn into compost, and that compost can then be put to good use in your garden. You can also help your family replace lawns with mulched gardens that are just as pretty, but are better for our environment.

REUSE You can “reuse” materials in their original form instead of throwing them away, or pass those materials on to others who could use them too! Remember, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure! Here are some examples of reuse ... Take along washable cups or travel mugs instead of disposables; a lot of restaurants and convenient stores will be glad to fill or refill your own mug. When you do use disposables like plastic cups, plates, utensils, and plastic food storage bags, don’t throw them away! Wash and reuse them -- most of them will last for a long time with many uses. They may not cost much to replace, but it doesn’t make any more sense to throw away those things than it does to throw away your bicycle after one use. And speaking of bicycles (or other durable goods like washers, dryers, etc.) -- why not repair them rather than replace them when they break? This is another form of “reuse”. New is not always better, nor it is always necessary. You’ll be helping your environment, but your pocketbook will thank you too! When you do decide to replace something large and “reusable”, be sure to donate the old one to charitable outlets


like Goodwill, Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, Vietnam Veterans, and the many others that are probably in your area. Most of the time the item can be repaired by those groups, and then redistributed into other homes rather than landfills. Hold a yard sale or give-away. And ask your neighbors to join in too -- this shares the work and increases the number of unused things that can find new homes and new uses. And your local recycling/solid waste office may run a “swap shop” at a recycling centers -When you do need to purchase something, check those yard sales and charitable outlets first to see if they have what you need before selecting something new. Use cloth gift bags and stop ripping the paper off gifts! If you remove the wrapping paper carefully, you can use it again, and there’s nothing wrong with doing just that! And don’t forget to use canvas or cloth bags when shopping so you don’t need to make the choice between “paper or plastic.” Use washable table napkins instead of paper napkins -- cloth napkins are usually much larger and more absorbent than paper products, and they can dress up your dinner table too!

RECYCLE Recycling occurs when you save and take reusable materials to places where they can be remade into either the same product or new products, rather than to just toss them in the trash. Making new items from recycled ones also takes fewer energy and other resources than making products from brand new materials. Just about anything in your home (or office or school, etc.) that cannot be reused CAN be recycled into something else. You’d be amazed what can be done with a recycled product ...a recycled soda bottle, for example, can be made into T-shirts, combs, or hundreds of other plastic goods that can be used for many years. Even your brand new computer case might be made from ordinary recycled plastics. And paper products can take on different forms as well -- an old phone book or coloring book might become one of your school books or a composition notebook. Your recycling mission is not impossible! In fact, it is very simple: Don’t throw away anything that can be recycled! Here, in Chatham County, is a list of things you should always recycle (or reuse!) ...

Tires Oil Eye glasses Paper Plastic Bags Plastic Bottles Rechargeable Batteries Steel Cans White Goods (Appliances) Wood Writing/Copy Paper Yard Waste Some of the items listed above will require special handling procedures and special recycling places or events. Just ask your local recycling office (city, county, or state) for assistance and information. In Savannah dial 311, or for Chatham County dial 652-6840. Now isn’t that easy? There is so much that YOU can do with very little effort. And the best part is you will probably save yourself a lot of money while you are at it! Here at Chatham County’s Resource Conservation Education Center we empower our community to conserve natural resources. To create a thriving community that understands the finite nature of natural resources and acts to conserve them through education, example, and involvement. The residents of Chatham County are committed to leaving the legacy of a healthy, sustainable community, society, and planet to future generations. Unfortunately, most people within our community are uncertain about how to turn that desire into action in practical and effective ways. Of those who have the knowledge, many fear that deprivation and discomfort are among the costs of taking action. The RCEC addresses this need by providing individuals with direction to find the answers, the products, and the services that make sustainable choices not just manageable, but comfortable and profitable.
