Mccormick is said to be calling the big reds Quot big Nosy i Don t read Kyle s paper. But i do Knoye that his attitude is Yurong. As a matter of fact. Parkersburg Hook a game Ynith Princeton without getting into a Peck of trouble. The state Board of appeals frowns on a championship Quot game. While i think the Board is wrong there in t anything i ran do about it. Parkersburg school officials Are not Unay Vare of the fact that they will certainly get jerked up on the carpet if they allow their team to play an extra game. Princeton May have the Best High school team in the state. At least i voted for that school when the sports by tigers conducted a poll to pick the champs. But you must play the game according to the rules and it is definitely whom i to Call Parkersburg a yellow Quot because the big reds wont flout the wishes of the Board of appeals.
