Tonight, Cougar Nation you have a chance to make a difference. In about 12 hours, the Lady Cougars will be tipping off against the Oak Ridge Lady Wildcats from Wildcat Arena. Are you ready? I’m serious, are you ready?
Just as we have expected night in and night out from our Lady Cougars all season long to defeat foe after foe, the expectations shift tonight. We expect you, Cougar Nation, to bring with you your best. Be loud! Be supportive! Stand up and chant DEFENSE! Get a ‘Campbell County’ chant going! These Lady Cougars have carried us on their backs all season. Let’s put them on our backs and win the regular season District 3-AAA championship!
And for our Cougars. I am so proud of how hard they are playing night in and night out. They are giving their all for Coach Darrell Cox, their teammates and our community. This is a team I believe can beat anybody, anywhere, at any time. I’ve seen them practice in the gym when no one is watching. I know Coach Cox and his staff are burning the midnight oil after every game watching film and figuring out our next move. Just as you will be supportive and rowdy for our Lady Cougars, our Cougars deserve that same passion and energy in the night cap!
I can’t tell you how special this year has been for the ole radio broadcaster. Coach Brad Honeycutt and Coach Cox have been amazing with their access and openness with their programs. We have the best student-athletes around. For me, it’s a privilege to tell you a story of Campbell County basketball every night out. I love these kids, my school where I’m blessed to teach and work, and my community!
Tonight, let’s make the difference Cougar Nation! Our kids deserve it! I’ll see you at Wildcat Arena this evening! — Josh (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 02/01/2019-6AM)
