FSCC receives building donation for new athletic facility

Fort Scott, Ks–Fort Scott Community College (FSCC) was recently gifted the building(s) on 14 S. Hill St. in Fort Scott, KS from Ann and Bill McCort of Crawford Sales. The property consists of two buildings which will be re-purposed as an athletic training center for the FSCC Greyhound Athletic Program. The northern building is approximately 3,500 square feet and will house the weight training area, turf, training room, office space, and restrooms. The southern building is approximately 4,800 square feet and will consist of indoor turf, indoor netting for baseball and softball, and will have a retractable center to provide maximum flexibility for this space.

It became a priority to find a way to help our student-athletes with a new athletic facility. We have severely outgrown our current weight room and have no indoor workout facility to use for softball, football, track, cross country, and golf. This impacts a large number of our athletes and it makes it very difficult to stay competitive in the Jayhawk Conference. We are so thankful to Bill and Ann McCort as they have gifted the College a building here in Fort Scott”, says Jeff Tadtman, Chief Development Officer.

FSCC is dedicated to student success on the field, on the court, and in the classroom. FSCC athletics play an important role in one of our central missions of cultural diversity and inclusion. Our student-athletes help to enrich the experience of all students’ educational knowledge and understanding.

In order for Fort Scott Community College (FSCC) to achieve the type of transformational success to benefit our students, we must invest in Greyhound Athletics. FSCC is dedicated to the goal of improving our athletic facilities to enhance the overall experience for our student-athletes. This investment needs to come from within, but also from our alumni and fans. Our needs have never been greater or more impactful on our future”, says Tom Havron, Vice President of Student Affairs. “The Hound Pound project is designed to provide a top-notch facility for our students of all sports, ensuring success within the competitive KJCCC.”

The playoff post-season has gone well for the UHS football team! Here’s the results of the two playoff games:

On October 30, 2020, the Uniontown Eagles played Troy and defeated them with a score of 51-14, setting a new record for points scored in a playoff game for UHS. The team had 453 total yards of offense and 7 touchdowns. Drew Perry had 31 carries for 234 yards with 4 touchdowns and completed 4/7 passes for 41 yards. Treden Buckman had 24 carries for 181 yards and 3 touchdowns. Luke Perry had 2 receptions for 26 yards, and Jake Harvey had 1 reception for 19 yards.

On the defensive side, we held Troy to 174 total yards and forced 2 turnovers. Jake Harvey had 10 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 1 sack, and 1 pass breakup. Drew Perry had 5 tackles and 2 pass breakups, Hunter Schaaf also had 5 tackles, and Joey Marlow had 3 tackles, 1 fumble recovery, and 1 interception. Tyler Harvey scored 6/7 extra points, and 1 field goal for 33 yards.

Coach Stark was incredibly proud of the team. “Some media outlets had predicted that Troy would upset us in the first round. Troy has a really good tradition and a really good program history. They won the state title in 2016. We were able to take control of the game pretty early on. We knew Troy had a really talented quarterback, so our plan was to run the clock, run the ball on offense, and limit big plays on defense. We were able to force a couple of turnovers, we were able to run the ball and establish the ground game early. We ran for over 400 7 we didn’t have a single turnover. Our lineman really set the tone. The 51 points we scored were the most ever by the team in a playoff game. The previous record was 50, set in 2015.”

On Friday, November 6, the Eagles defeated Northeast Arma 45-0. This game won Uniontown its first regional title since 1998, and posted the school’s first shutout in the post-season since 1982. Offensively, the team ran 326 total yards and had 5 touchdowns. Drew Perry had 10 carries for 100 yards with 3 touchdowns and 2/3 on passing for 15 yards. Treden Buckman had 15 carries for 146 yards with 1 touchdown. Jake Harvey had 4 carries for 27 yards, scored 1 touchdown, and had 1 reception for 19 yards. Hunter Schaaf had 6 carries for 46 yards, and Cade Goodridge had 2 receptions for 15 yards.

The team defensively held the Vikings to 39 total yards and forced 2 turnovers. Zach Franklin had 11 tackles, 4 tackles for loss, and 2.5 sacks. Korbin Miller had 7 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, and 0.5 sack. Ian McClure had 5 tackles, 4 tackles for loss, and 1 sack. Jake Harvey had 10 tackles and 1 tackle for loss. Drew Perry had 2 tackles and 1 interception, and Hunter Schaaf had 8 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, and 1 interception. Tyler Harvey scored 5/5 extra points and 1 field goal for 30 yards. Byron Fry had 3 tackles and 1 blocked punt, and Riley Warner had 3 tackles and 1 blocked punt, which was recovered for a touchdown.

Coach Stark said of the game, “Not only did we win a regional title on Friday night, but we finished the season undefeated in our league. Our defense had their best game of the year, only giving up 39 yards, and we forced 2 turnovers. Because of the effort of our linemen up front, I feel like our game against Arma was the best game of the year. Our guys play with great effort, technique, and determination, and it really shows.

“While we are excited about our wins these past two weeks, we are even more excited about the opportunity to play Olpe in the sectional round of the payoffs. Olpe is ranked number one in the state, and they beat us earlier this season 48-2. That was a really close game until halftime; I believe, this time, that we’ll play them tight for a full four quarters and that it’ll be a close game.”

The Sub-State game is at Olpe on Friday, November 13, so making the drive could be difficult, but any support for our Eagles will be appreciated!
