Battle for the Paddle

Left to Right, with the Paddle Trophy, Coach Russ Schneider, Head Football Coach, Fox Creek High School and Coach Keith Walton, Head Football Coach, Augusta Christian Schools

The 5th Annual “Battle for the Paddle” is this Thursday, September 13th at 7:30pm at Augusta Christian Schools. This game will be televised by WJBF News Channel 6, Comcast 380. This is a traditional game where the victor retains the coveted paddle for one more year. Augusta Christian is 4-0 in the series. The teams had to postpone their 2010 and 2011 matchups due to scheduling conflicts, but the rivalry is back! Interesting side note: Fox Creek’s Head Coach Russell Schneider was starting full back for the Augusta Christian Lions in 1990 and Augusta Christian’s Head Coach Keith Walton was starting tailback for the Lions. The two joked that Coach Schneider was the reason for Coach Walton’s high career yardage.
