BEARDEN (WVLT) -- Bearden running back Devrin Young was highly touted coming into the 2010 season.

After Friday night, the diminutive senior will have to wear earplugs to drown out the hype.

Young scampered for six touchdowns Friday, leading Bearden to a 72-27 season-opening win over Walker Valley.

WEST KNOXVILLE -- The Carter Hornets looked to be on their way to a season-opening win over Hardin Valley.

Enter Dorian Eskridge.

    No question, Devrin is an exceptional playing and a caring individual; but what i found dissppointing was the article on the bearden team after their victory last week. All other games covered, reporters wrote about the team performace and what happenend in the game - 1/2 of the bearden article was about where devrin will go to college. Football is a team sport and bearden has some very talented players, but you would not know this by the way the news covers our team. I hope, as the season progresses, you will write about the game and the contrbutions from all players. I know Devrin would agree.
