Your sports update

Well, let’s check in on my quarterback nephew Jacob Tucker and the Perry County Vikings football team:

Aug. 19: Perry County 22, Forrest 7 (Bill Beasley from Cedar Grove UMC, where my father was recently interim pastor, is a terrific photographer who regularly shoots the Forrest games. “Wanted to see Jacob tonight, but not that much!” he wrote when he posted the photos.)

Aug. 26: Perry County 20, Lewis County 6

Sept. 2: Perry County 44, Cornersville 7

By my math, Perry County leads its opponents 86-20 thus far. We’ll keep you apprised as the season goes on, whether you want us to or not.
