By John "Appy" Appicello - Sports Director

GALAX (WSLS-10 SPORTS)-  It was set up to be a showdown in the Mountain Empire District, but it quickly became a showcase for a Galax star.

The Maroon tide were trailing 7-0 to Narrows when running back Dougie Peoples caught fire.   The junior tailback took control to the tune of 25 attempts for 306 yards rushing. When the dust had settled---Dougie Peoples had found the end zone eight times on rushes of 20, 29, 8, 2, 41, 39, 8 and 7 yards   The effort ties the Virginia high school record for touchdowns in a single game.

Galax was the owner of a 54-7 district win over the Green wave.

For the second time this season, Galax's Dougie Peoples is your Schewels- 1st and 10 Player of the Week.
