Junior quarterback Matt Eads threw for 401 yards and four tuchdowns, two to WR Josh Crouch.

LEBANON -- Three turnovers on Lebanon’s first four offensive snaps ruined an otherwise perfect night for football at the annual Kickoff Classic Thursday night, hosted by the Blue Devil Football Foundation.

Operating out of the Smokestack-I for most of the night, the Bucs played some of their best ball of the preseason.
"I don’t know where that just came from," said Beech head coach David Crabtree.
"We’ve struggled in some of our scrimmages. I hope we can build on this effort next week."
Lebanon was somewhat limited on offense due to holding several players out with minor injuries.
"We did get some things accomplished, even if the score was out of whack," said LHS coach Bobby Brown.
In a bright note, the ninth grade Blue Devils defeated Beech 14-6 as QB Patrick Maynard scored both touchdowns.
The varsity Blue Devils open the season Aug. 29 at home against Gallatin. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

I grew up in the suburbs of a big city. Most everyone I knew had an identical looking house in a subdivision. Your house was either a “ranch” or a “colonial”. Every home was surrounded by a big gray concrete sidewalk in the front and a large wooden fence in the back.

Lebanon City Council passed on second reading an ordinance to rezone 33.74 acres on Tater Peeler Road, from R-2 (medium density residential) and RM-6 (high density multi-family residential) to B-4 (highway business) at Tuesday night’s meeting.
The ordinance said the characteristic uses are retail, restaurant and convenient stores. The B-4 zone it could also be used for an amusement park, an auction house, bowling alleys, nursing homes, a miniature golf course, skating rinks, kennels or a race track.
The Tater Peeler Road area is in fact one of several sites under consideration for the Bible Park if it should be located in Wilson County, according to City Liaison Sue Akins Siens. Others are along I-40 and State Routes 840 and 109, she said.
19 PARCELS ON LIST
Wilson County will conduct a delinquent tax sale at 10 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 13 in the Chancery Courtroom at the Wilson County Judicial Center, located at 134 South College Street, Lebanon.
Potential buyers are encouraged to arrive on time to hear about the terms of a tax sale. Back Tax Attorney Bob Rochelle said he will warn that this is a "buyer beware" sale where the buyer takes much more risk than if buying from a Realtor or an individual.
Potential purchasers are encouraged to thoroughly investigate the parcels before the sale.
The county will sell 19 parcels. A list of the parcels slated for sale may be obtained from the Office of the Clerk and Master.
"There may be parcels paid before the sale date. Of course, they will be dropped from the sale," Rochelle said. "Prospective purchasers should make their own inquiry into the state of the title and condition of each parcel."
The sale is part of the continuing effort by Wilson County and the cities of Lebanon and Watertown to reduce the amount of delinquent taxes owed, he added.
FORMER MJ FOOTBALL STANDOUT
By TOMMY BRYAN, The Wilson Post
There’s a sign in the break room at Lebanon’s Parker Seals which reads, "We’ve got friends in high places."
One of those high-flying friends popped in for a visit Friday morning – none other than NASA Astronaut Barry "Butch" Wilmore.
In the fall of 2009 Commander Wilmore expects to be at the controls of a space shuttle mission to the International Space Station – certainly going faster and higher than anyone who grew up on West Wilson County’s Vanderbilt Road.
A 1981 graduate of Mt. Juliet High School and a former Golden Bear football standout, Wilmore was on hand to brief Parker Seals employees on the importance of team work and dedication to excellence.
Parker Seals manufactures rubber which is used for the 23-foot long "o-rings" so vital to the solid rocket boosters used to help launch the space shuttles.

LEBANON -- Cumberland University’s football program will stage a "Meet the Bulldogs" event Saturday, Aug. 23 between the hours of 9-11 a.m. at Lindsey Donnell Stadium.
Plans call for the players to be available for autographs, pocket schedules and posters will be distributed and a few free tickets to upcoming games will be awarded.
Third year head coach Dewayne Alexander is hoping the community will recognize his program as "fan friendly".
"We’ve got an outstanding group of young men on this football team, certainly the best since I’ve been here," Alexander said.
"I’d especially like to invite the junior pro, junior high and high school players to come meet these guys Saturday morning."
Cumberland will wrap up serious two-a-day practices today and is scheduled to hold "Picture Day" activities Thursday morning.
A game-type intrasquad scrimmage is on tap for Thursday afternoon followed by two light practices on Friday in helmets, shirts and shorts.
Alexander was particularly pleased with the effort dur-ing Saturday afternoon’s nearly 90 minute scrimmage.
"I was pleased with our concentration and execution," Alexander said.
"We were on our 12th consecutive practice session and I thought our guys were a little leg weary, but they battled through it.
"Our offense didn’t have any bad plays, no bad snaps, no bad exchanges between the quarterbacks and backs.
"Our receivers ran good routes and I thought our offensive play was very physical."
Senior tight end Michael Thrasher pulled in several tough catches.
On the other hand, the Bulldog defense of first-year coordinator Donnie Suber didn’t give up big plays.
"Our defense kept things pretty well bottled up, no busts in the secondary -- well played overall," Alexander said.
Lebanon safety Freddie Hall had a leaping interception of a tipped pass to snuff out a late drive.
CU is set to open its’ 11-game season Saturday, August 30 on the road at conference rival Campbellsville.
