The Walnut Ridge Scots have played most of the 2013 season without their best college prospect, defensive end Robert Bowers. A hulking, 6’5, 210-pound specimen, Bowers, a senior, has committed to Michigan State University. He has been out most of the season recovering from shoulder surgery,

His absence has not kept the Scots from winning games. They are 6-1 overall, 4-2 in the South Division.

Friday night, Walnut Ridge ran away from visiting Briggs, 63-12.

Starring for the Scots were William Stringer who rushed for 146 yards and two touchdowns; Jaisean Johnson rushed 17 times for 193 yards rushing with five touchdowns.

Briggs, under head coach Butler By’not’e, a former Ohio State running back under John Cooper, drops to 1-7, 1-4 on the season.
