Callaway's No. 5 Deon I the scoring with handoff and he was for the first r score with 9:28 left on first quarter clock. The defense stopped the try by the Devils at the 34. Several long runs by Jay Brewer got the down to the Bremen goal. Brewer had a record night The power running rused 10 times for two pass- 63 yards.He scored three The reason Callaway moved ball was a superior of fen- line. Its members: 71 - Mitchell, 74 - Matt Smith, 55 - Mark Hajdasz, 79 - Danny O'Dell, 61 - Adam Pike, 30 - Jonathan Pike, Near the end of the first quarter Boykin rolled in the end zone again untouched by Bremen hands making the first quarter score Callaway 14 - Bremen 0. Both of Callaway's defem ' sive corner backs were out with injuries early in the game. Bremen started to move the ball with a variety of pass plays. Their left handed quarterback is very skilled at the soft,easy to catch, rainbow pass.the Bremen Blue Devils scored with just three minutes left in the first half. Many times their receivers were wide open. Then with just seconds left the Devils did it again. Another long aerial bomb put six more on the scoreboard. Callaway took the kickoff and advanced to mid-field. Cavs quarterback Demetrius Smith hit No. 8 Jamaal Keyton with a 30 yard pass. Keyton carried the ball to the Blue Devil 13 and lateralled to Nature who scooted in for the score at the buzzer. It was one of those plays you have got. to see in person. Callaway's P.A.T. was good and the halftime score was 21 to 12 Callaway. The momentum was certainly rolling with the Cavaliers. Captains for Callaway this game were Danny O'Dell, Mitchell Strozier, and Demetrius Smith. Bremen may never be the same after this game. In the second half of this runaway game Callaway scored five more The P.A.T. kicking by sophomore Brent Matheny was perfect. He high for 8. Cavalier head coach Sonny Cummings said, "Brent stood 10 feet tall. We may soon try a field goal if the situation is right." The Bremen public address announcer sounded like an old pro at his job. The Devils were running out of gas toward the end of the contest. The PA man announced a score the same way... "Jay Brewer touchdown Cavaliers" or "Deon Boykin touchdown Cavaliers." Coach Cummings was excited after the 56 to 39 game. He said, "It was a track meet. A school record. We were in a war. They had a lot of yards We lost our corner backs early and without the Tigner brothers we were hurting on pass defense. Jacque did come back for some of the second half. Nate Tatum played big for us. He went both ways and I know he was exhausted.

By Bryan Geter Associate Editor It can be said that his business is going to the dogs! At the intersection of Motley Bridge and Hightower Road in Hogansville, you may hear the yipping, barking and howling of dogs. You can be sure you are at the home of Brier Patch Beagles, AKC. The owners are Larry Dorrough and his eight year old grandson, Austin. Dorrough said that he has been raising and running beagles all his life. "I guess I inherited this from my father," Dorrough said. They have 15 beagle dogs at present -- seven that are trained and ready to go, three are young canines, four are puppies and of course, Buddy, a family pet. Dorrough said that the breedlines that he raises are diamond and skullfork. He has dogs for sale-started and running. He also trains and breeds beagles for the public to run rabbits and even train them not to be gun-shy. Dorrough has a three acre fenced-in plot where he trains the young dogs. Dorrough said that he takes his canines out three evenings a week and on Saturday mornings to let them run and stay in shape for the upcoming season. His beagles won't run deer. He uses train- ing collars to keep his dogs from chasing the white-tails. Austin said that his job is to feed and water the dogs. Dorrough said that the beagle makes good pets. "My daughter, Laura, has one on a chain and collar named "Buddy". "Behind every good pack of beagles," he said, "you'll find a good veterinarian. I'm appreciates all that Dr. Thomas Harris of LaGrange does for us." He also enjoys hunting with friends such as Thomas Pike, Dan Mitchell, Lee Bailey and others. Dorrough said that real good dogs sells for as much as $900 and running dogs goes for $300 and puppies sells for $150-$200. Dorrough makes a living as a maintenance department supervisor for the Troup County Board of Commissioners. As a resident of Hogansville, he wanted to make a difference in the city that he loved. So two years ago he ran and won a seat on the Hogansville City Council. He's had to make some tough decisions on matters while serving and sometimes he even had to stand alone. Standing alone came last Monday night at the council meeting when he was the only councilmember to oppose the rezoning of land near the interstate that would clear the way for a truck plaza to come to Hogansville. As a family man, Dorrough is married to Bobbie and they have three children and two grandchildren. He is an active member at the Antioch Baptist Church where he serves as a deacon.
