Our goal here at Sleeper Athletes is to give exposure to these lesser known athletes. This service, available for coaches and parents, will allow them to have their student-athletes properly exposed to colleges around the United States in hopes of receiving a scholarship from any schools that are interested in their particular talents. The main focus of Sleeper Athletes is to service the smaller colleges

@Greenwave Fan: Very impressed by your squad that doesn’t even have a track on which to practice. Outstanding. Do you know why your 4X4 anchor walked off the track before he got to the finish line? Was he confused by the blue triangles just before the line? Jefferson’s track has an odd configuration and I thought that might have been the reason. Hope that kid wasn’t a senior and will be able to come back next season. Still, a great effort by Terrell County. You folks down in Dawson should be proud!

Thanks for reading and posting!

@ S. Thomas Coleman: The kid running the anchor became dizzy and thought he had crossed the finish line. The full Albany Herald article is on the link below. So proud of the Green and Gold Team!!
