Baylor's OT Bah Signs With Tennessee Wesleyan

Monday, July 22, 2013

Baylor School's OT Bah has signed to play at soccer at Tennessee Wesleyan College.  OT Bah was a boarding student at The Baylor School in Chattanooga, TN.

He was All-State, as an attacking central midfielder, while leading Baylor to a state soccer title in 2012. OT went back home to graduate high school before he made his journey to Tennessee Wesleyan College.

Scott and Susan Wilson have been a huge influence in helping OT find his way back to the states and land at TWC. 

Baylor head coach Curtis Blair stated "Coach Lyons is getting a crafty, left footed player, that can run at players and be dangerous in the attacking third. I am very pleased that OT gets a chance to get a great education while also helping my alma mater in soccer. I know that Coach Lyons is a quality coach and will be able to take OT to the next level." 

Tennessee Wesleyan welcomes OT Bah to the soccer program.

Does The Signal Mountain Town Council Take Its Constituents As Fools?

You've got to hand it to the Signal Mountain Town Council. In their scheme to change the zoning on Signal Mountain from 1/2 an acre to 1/4 an acre they get more creative by the day in coming up with justifications for doing something a majority of their constituents are squarely against.   They started off by hiding behind a poor widow who had fallen on hard times. She had ... (click for more)
