White County releases approved 2018 football schedule

Schedules, Team FYN Sports

The White County Warriors had an impressive 2017 football season. Coming off an abismal 1-9 season in 2016, the Warriors came out swinging and scored some big wins early in 2017; defeating Franklin (33-0), Lumpkin (66-14) and Habersham Central (24-21) before dropping a tough loss to Rabun County (49-26).

The Warriors came back the following week and knocked down North Hall (28-18), who’s only other loss to a AAAA power came in the final seconds against Pickens County (42-35) where the Trojans marched down the field and came up just short as time expired.

In 2018, the Warriors will once again have an exciting schedule to kick off the season, and there’s no doubt they’ll be looking to duplicate and even improve upon their 7-4, 2-2 season from last year.

With games at Lumpkin County and then home against Habersham Central, the Warriors kick the season off much like they did in 2017.  However, put a big red circle around the Sept 7 game at Pickens County, where PHS head coach Chris Parker is likely reloading rather than rebuilding this season.  The game pits two quality AAAA programs against each other in non-region play, with White representing Region 7-AAAA and Pickens representing Region 6-AAAA.  Both teams were eliminated early in post-season play last year, but both teams proved to be fearsome opponents on the gridiron regardless of home/away.

After the Pickens game, the Warriors schedule doesn’t let up.

The Warriors enjoyed a 10-pt victory over North Hall last season, but the Trojans played much better football as the season continued, and was the #TeamFYNSports Most Improved Team in Region 7-AAA last season.  The Warriors will look to defeat the Trojans (9/14), before taking the drive over to Marist for their first game in region play.  Marist, as the whole world is aware, is the defending region champion in Region 6.  What’s interesting about Marist is although they won their region, defeating rival Blessed Trinity 25-24 early in the season.  Two months later, the two teams met again in the State Championship and Blessed Trinity defeated the War Eagles 16-7.  Undoubtedly, Marist will look to return to the final in 2018, but they will have to go through White County first.

Perhaps the best part of the Warriors’ schedule this year is the break between facing Marist (9/21) and Blessed Trinity (11/2), although the Warriors will need to defeat Flowery Branch, West Hall, Denmark and Chestatee during the interim.

How will the 2018 season fare for the Warriors of White County?  It’s too early to tell.  Rest assured the team will be preparing accordingly and TeamFYNSports looks forward to reporting on the 2018 season from the sidelines this fall.

Doctor Whaley had some excellent information for us this morning. He answered the following viewer questions this week:
  • What are the benefits of aromatherapy?
  • Can I use artificial sweeteners if I have diabetes?
  • Taurine is listed as an ingredient in many energy drinks. What is taurine? Is it safe?
He also talked about studies of NFL and college football players that have donated their brains to test the long term effect on your cognitive function after years of this full contact sport.
 

Workout Like a Pro~Workout with a Pro at Zoo-Ology Zen Zone a new workout center in Pickens County

Business

1zzz

Do you want to be fit & healthy?  Did help getting on the right track?  Maybe you need to schedule an appointment with personal trainer Gabe “Zoo” Northern.  Former NFL player has moved from the Buffalo Bills to the Foothills.  The foothills of Jasper, GA.  Being fit has always been an important part of Gabe’s life so when he decided he liked the weather better in the South he moved into Pickens County.  Now you can work out like a pro…and with one!

Gabriel O’Kara Northern (born June 8, 1974) is a former American football linebacker and defensive end who played for five seasons with the Buffalo Bills and Minnesota Vikings. He served as defensive line coach at Prairie View A&M from 2011 to 2012 and 2014, and in the same position at Grambling State from 2001 to 2003.  

As a rookie in 1996, he finished the year with 5.0 Sacks and 19 Tackles. In his second season, he started one game and recorded 24 tackles. He made the switch to outside linebacker in 1998 and started 16 games, finishing with 2.0 Sacks, one interception, one forced fumble, and 32 Tackles. In 1999, he again started 16 games and finished with 3.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and 35 Tackles.  13592307_974111002706749_7330317336930391926_n

Northern opened up a fitness center, Zoo-Ology Zen Zone, offering various options to anyone who wants to be in better health.  Are you looking for a new and exciting way to revamp your workout routine? Gabe Northern, owner and new Pickens County resident, is the person to see. Gabe brings a fresh face to health and wellness. His years of experience playing college and professional football, as well as coaching professional football has prepared him for a career in motivating others to invest in their health. ZOO-OLOGY Zen Zone focuses on a combination of yoga, meditation, footwork, core, and football type drills.

 

Speaking from personal experience I can attest to the type of training you receive when you schedule with Gabe Northern!  He was able to develop a specific training for me which provided a routine I could handle while also providing me with the exercise I needed to work toward my goals.

13450060_959720414145808_2692174747205617071_nGabe believes in providing a family friendly atmosphere, where anyone from 4 years old to 84 years old can work out. This summer, he will be putting on summer camps for young boys to improve on their health, while also working on their behavior. In addition, he has begun working with the Pickens High School football team in their pursuit of a state title. Gabe wholeheartedly loves this community and asks for your continued support in making his dream of owning this business a success.
