"Last year when I took over as director, I looked at ? the program and saw where it was at and where 1 want ed it to go, and we made the decision collectively to become a member of the CCYFL," Brown said. There were four age divisions that the six partic ipating teams competed in on Saturday ranging from 6 to 12 years of age. Each team was able to play three scrimmages that gave the coaches an opportunity to asses the progress of their teams. There were multi ple games being played at the same time on multiple fields. YCFL Age 12 and under assistant coach Bernard Williams Jr. says he loves to see the passion the kids have and their desire to get better. Williams, a former player at East Carolina University, knows what it takes to make it to the next level and just wants the kids to continue to work hard. 'Today showed me that we need to work on some fundamentals like tackling and our blocking assign ments," he said. "I like how everyone came togeth er in the spirit of sports manship. Everyone was out here competing and try ing to get better and .the biggest thing was that the kids had fun so that's what I like the most." Sam Davis, head coach for the YCFL age 12 and under team, was impressed with his team's perform ance and the effort they dis played Saturday. "We .are young and most of our kids have never played football before," Davis said. "Overall I'm pleased with the way we played. I can't downplay the significance because we needed to go against some other teams to get a chance to see where we are and now we know. We can now go back and make some corrections, and hopefully next Saturday we will be ready." Even with the blistering heat and humidity Saturday afternoon, the stands were full with parents and team supporters. Brown said he contin ues to be involved with youth football because he gets so much satisfaction by "watching the glow in the young people's eyes when they're having fun." He says he sees young peo ple he has coached every where he goes. "I want the league, to continue to grow and to have our parents continue to participate and support us, and I want to see our kids do well not only on the football field but more importantly do well aca demically and as citizens in our community," said Brown.

Viking head coach Corey Stewart was pleased with the efforts of his team and says he will work on some things during the bye week to sure up some of the mistakes that were made against Glenn. "In the first half, we had too many mistakes, but in the second half I thought we came out and played a little bit harder but the game just did turn our way," Stewart said. "With the turnovers it's just about execution, so when we get back to practice on Monday, we will try and clean that up." Late in the fourth quarter. North Forsyth had a glimmer of hope are a broken pass play when Marquez Hurst broke through the Glenn defense for a long scramble but was stripped near the sideline. The ball was picked up by his teammate Josh Reynolds, who had the presence of mind to reverse field and take the fumble in for a touchdown with 3:42 seconds left in the game, bringing the score to 14 to 6. On Glenn's next possession, they went three and out and had to punt the ball away, giving the Vikings one last chance to tie the game but when the ball was punted, the North Forsyth return man was indecisive on whether or not he was going to pick the ball up or let it roll and he touched the ball, making it live and was recovered by Glenn. The Bobcats then took a knee on first and second down to end the game. Smoothie from page B1 "I wasn't expecting the love we're getting at this store from the community, from the area, which I am so thankful for." Dorsey, 41,.an Indiana native, has lived in Charlotte most of his life. He's an Army National Guard veteran and works as an IT project manager at a bank. He's also a married father of two, so he's been juggling many responsibili ties while making his entre preneurial dreams come true. Dorsey discovered smoothies during his mili tary service. He was look ing for something to help him get fit and visited a smoothie shop in Columbia, S.C. He fell in love with smoothies and has been drinking them ever since. After moving back to Charlotte, he found a Smoothie King, which has a wide variety of smoothies that are designed to be healthy, nutritious and tasty He said U&jnjemt was like nothing he'd seen before, with so many options it took 10 minutes to decide what he wanted, which ended up being a pomegranate smoothie. He said it was the best smooth ie he'd ever had. So when he wanted to start a franchise, his mind went to smoothies. After some research, he came up with a list of 10 major smoothie chains and called them up. Smoothie King wasn't on this list, but he was drinking a Smoothie King smoothie while going through his options. He realized the answer was right in front of him the entire time. He gave his favorite smoothie brand a call and things finally start ed clicking. Dorsey said a good bit of the state already had Smoothie King franchises and he had to pick an area that didn't.

Between the two shops, both of which have drive thru windows, Dorsey has about 24 full-time and part time employees. He said Smoothie King has helped him every' step of the way, including point ing him in the right direc ... . ^ ,*)*<m-s*'4mm mrni^ tion to find financing for his locations.
