Plenty of football for holidays
Holiday tidings, sports fans. I certainly hope that your holidays are progressing well and healthily. I believe that it was George Burns who said that “Holiday happiness is having a large, loving, close-knit family-preferably in a different city.”

Holly Springs High School has added a couple of basketball outings during the holidays.
The Hawks and Lady Hawks are scheduled to play Booneville in the Booneville Tournament on Tuesday night of this week, Dec. 30. Game times are girls, 7 p.m., and boys, 8:30 p.m.
Then on Saturday, Jan. 3, Holly High will host Orr Academy High School from Chicago, Ill.
The Spartans and Lady Spartans are coached by Louis Adams, who played college basketball at Rust. He played for the Bearcats when they were coached by Naylond Hayes, now head coach of the Holly High boys (9-5).
“He wanted to come down here and play the Hawks,” Hayes said. “They’re good or they wouldn’t be coming down here. They are one of the top teams in Chicago. It will be a good test for us.”
The Lady Hawks and Lady Spartans will tip off at 6 p.m. Saturday and the boys matchup between Holly High and Orr will follow at about 7:15 p.m.
