  • Red Devils scorch PKee^Yonge

    The Red Devils found themselves tied with the PK Yonge Blue Wave early in the third quarter 14-14, on a hot humid night in Gainesville.

    Senior Deonte Welch, playing for the first time this season after missing the Fall Classic game last week, took over in the fourth quarter after setting out most of the second quarter with cramps after being helped off the field.

    The Red Devils opened the scoring with 5:45 showing on the first quarter clock, as DJ King rambled in from the 7 yard line for the first of his two touchdowns on the night.

  • Lady Red Devils take bite out of...

    After winning the Levy County Tournament with two wins, the Williston Lady Red Devil Volleyball team hosted the Suwannee Lady Bulldogs on Thursday night Sept. 3 and swept the match in three straight games.

    In game one, the Lady Bulldogs appeared to be finding their ranges on the court as they gave up points to the Red Devils on many out-of-bounds hits. The Red Devils had little trouble winning the game 25-7.

  • Injuries, penalties cost Eagles...

    It was a rough night for Bronson coach Al Cooksey.

    Just one week earlier, Eagles running back Eric Oliver torched Oak Hall for 239 yards and three touchdowns in Bronson’s 31-7 preseason romp.

    This time? Oliver went down with an ankle injury early in the first half during Bronson’s season opener against visiting Trenton.

    Add 12 Eagles penalties for 115 yards, including five personal fouls and two ejections, and it all adds up to an ugly 27-13 defeat for Bronson at home last Friday. It was the fifth consecutive win for Trenton in the rivalry.

  • Let the games begin

    Red Devil football fans are just a few days away from seeing their team take the field against the Bradford Tornadoes.

    On Aug. 28, the Red Devils, under the direction of new Head Coach Derek Chippoletti and his staff, will travel to take on a Bradford team that Chippoletti calls “A real good match up team for his Red Devils.”

    “Bradford’s head coach, Steve Hoard, is a defensive minded coach and this game will certainly test our offense right out of the gate,” Chipoletti said.

  • Red Devil defense dominates at...


    Standing in water on the sidelines over their shoe tops, the playing conditions on the field were not much better.

    However, the Williston junior varsity team played the first half of the Fall Classic and took advantage of a hard hitting defense in both quarters. They forced three fumbles and with just over two minutes to play in the second quarter Austin Chipoletti hit Tre Wilson with a long pass to the Bradford six yard line. Damon Strange took the ball into the end zone on the next play, as the Red Devil JV beat the Bradford JV 6-0 in a half of football.

  • Williston defense dominates Fall...

    The Williston Red Devils traveled to Bradford for their long awaited first action of the season. The field that awaited both teams was water soaked and the sidelines left water over everyone’s shoe tops. Six players were not suited up for action for various reasons on the Red Devil varsity squad, and it was the defense that took control for both the junior varsity and the varsity halves of football.
