The 2016 yearbook picture of the Massac County varsity football team didn't include any of the freshmen boys. They were freshmen. That team dropped their first game of the year to DuQuoin, defeated Nashville 14-13 then got blown out in six of their last seven games of the year. Thus began th…
Marion brought a strong contingent to the Patriot Invitational cross country meet last Thursday and, when the last runners had crossed the finish line, the Wildcats had roared to first place finishes for both boys and girls teams.
One week after putting up 29 points at Anna-Jonesboro in a 34-29 loss, Massac ran into some bad weather, a little bad luck and that old bug-a-boo ... turnovers at Muphysboro and dropped a 27-0 decision to the Red Devils.

Jason Roper's second season at the helm for Massac County High School's football program is already looking up. Roper isn't ready to predict a winning season, far from it, but he likes a lot about this year's squad.
