    After leading a very talented 2009-2010 Red Devil basketball team to the State Final Four in his first season as the Head Coach of the Williston Red Devils, Steve Faulkner is again ready to take the helm of the 2010-2011 Red Devils.
    Gone are the likes of Deonte Welch, Isaac Floyd, and Kelsey Coleman who played a big role in the Red Devils attack last season.

  • Red Devils fall in Gainesville Classic

    It was a run and gun, basket trading, wide open game between 5A defending State Champion Gainesville High School and the 3A Williston Red Devils coming off a trip to the Final Four last season.
    With several Gainesville players still on the football team going to the playoffs against Tarpon Springs, and four Williston players playing in a football Bowl Game at West Nassau one would not expect both teams to score in the 80s. But that is just what happened on Thursday night, Nov. 18, at the Gainesville Gym when the Hurricanes won 88-83.

  • Red Devils go flat at Union County

    The Williston Red Devil football team ran into a group of fired up Tigers Friday night in Lake Butler. This Tiger’s name was Union County, and you could certainly say a defensive juggernaut.   
    The Red Devils were held to a mere 150 total yards of offense and just one touchdown in the 28-7 loss to the Tigers.
    The Tigers were coming off four straight losses, but you would never have guessed it by the way they simply dominated the entire game from start to finish.

  • Homecoming Victory

    It was homecoming night at Booster Stadium, and the Newberry Panthers had only one thing in mind–spoil the night for Williston.
    But the Red Devils had other plans after falling behind early in the second half as the Panthers scored the go ahead touchdown following a Red Devil kick off fumble.
    The Red Devils had to answer twice with scoring drives. The last drive concluded with just 52 seconds remaining in the game as Dontrell Edwards scampered 22 yards for the winning touchdown, giving the Red Devils a 32-27 win.

    The Williston Lady Red Devil were forced to go the distance on their Senior Night Thursday, Oct. 21, against the Bronson Lady Eagles.
    The Lady Eagles opened up the match by taking two of the first three games against a Lady Red Devil team that was insistent on beating themselves.
    Game one was tied at 12-12 when the Lady Eagles stretched their lead to 19-13 on aggressive play by Brittany Smith and Ashley Mickel. The Lady Eagles went on to win game one 25-15.

  • OUCH!

  • Chiefland rallies to beat Williston in volleyball

    The volleyball match was about two very different teams showing up for each game Monday night at the Red Devil gym.

    The Lady Indians of Chiefland started game 1 having trouble with their serves, and they seemed to be moving in slow motion. But, by the end of the match, after falling behind two games to none, these same Lady Indians seemed to find a new gear. 

  • Bronson falls to St. Joseph Academy

    ST. AUGUSTINE -- Quintell Coleman ran the opening kickoff back 90 yards, but that was one of the few bright spots for Bronson in a 51-12 loss to St. Joseph Academy’s football team Friday night.

    Coleman caught a 43-yard TD pass before halftime, making the score a respectable 22-12 at the break. But the Flashes exploded for 29 points in the third period and that set up a running clock to finish the game.

    St. Joe rushed for 290 yards, while Bronson ran for just 37.
