  • Quiet Storm: Once a shy newcomer, Richardson has helped make Cannon girls basketball a contender

    The biggest, best and most ballyhooed player on the team was also its most bashful.

    It was a contradiction, if there ever was one.

    Here Reigan Richardson was, an amazingly talented athlete who was already one of the most recognized 10th-grade girls basketball players in the United States. She stood 6-feet tall, and every high school in North Carolina – probably every college here, too – would’ve loved to have had her gracing its campus.

  • Senior Zach Kellman is one of the top receiving threats for the Cabarrus Warriors this season.

    The Zach Impact: Decision to return to the football field has helped Kellman, Warriors in myriad ways

    Zach Kellman was almost certain of it: He was going to retire as a high school football player.


    His junior season with the Cabarrus Warriors football team had been, well, rough.

    For starters, the Warriors lost their first four games of the 2019 campaign and scored a combined 14 points in that span. Then Kellman, a defensive back, suffered a concussion midway through the season that kept him out for the year. Finally, he had to watch his teammates struggle through the season with just two victories.

  • Cabarrus Warriors quarterback Tyler Green won the starting job and helped his team to a season-opening victory over North Raleigh Christian Academy last Friday.

    Green in name only: Cabarrus Warriors’ freshman quarterback has no problem proving ready to carry load

    As narratives for backstories of high school quarterbacks starting their first varsity games go, there was very little that foreshadowed the type of complete game that Tyler Green would play last Friday.

    His team, the Cabarrus Warriors, was kicking off only its second season, and last year’s 2-8 record didn’t warrant any promise. The team’s young head coach, Jamie Bolton, was brand new to the program and working his first game as the leader of a program as well.

    Following the most non-traditional span of spring and summer workouts, limited in quantity and quality by coronavirus restrictions, Bolton named Green the starting quarterback only a few weeks ago. And Green is only a freshman.

  • JOE HABINA COLUMN: There were no fans at Randy Marion Field Friday, but there was plenty of hope

    The sight of the glowing lights of a distant high school football stadium has provided plenty of inspiration for many written passages about the romance of autumn Friday nights and the young gridiron heroes for which they were made.

    A couple days ago, driving up the winding entrance of Cannon School toward Randy Marion Field provided one of those moments. The football stadium is hidden on the backside of campus and a day’s worth of rain – sometimes heavy – placed a pall over the possibility that a game would be played there Friday night.

  • Sofia Rooney is one of the top track and field athletes in Cannon School history and has committed to compete at the University of Notre Dame.

    Vision Quest: Cannon’s Rooney saw her dream and chased it all the way to South Bend, Indiana

    Attached to the wall in Sofia Rooney’s bedroom is a vision board.

    As a talented track and field athlete at Cannon School, along with being a strong student, Rooney has some lofty goals that grace her vision board. And each night, before she ends her day, she looks at the board for motivation to train and study harder to one day fulfill her dreams.

    Last week, the Cannon senior was able to see one of her greatest visions through: She officially became a member of the University of Notre Dame’s track and field team.

  • Austin Cindric, a 2017 Cannon School graduate, has won five races this season and leads the NASCAR Xfinity Series in points, driver rating, laps led and fastest laps run.

    Born to Race: Xfinity leader and Cannon School grad Cindric found NASCAR inspiration through family, Concord ties

    Austin Cindric was born to race.

    Sitting in class at the Cannon School, which he attended from second grade through high school graduation, he could hear cars on the track at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

    “That spiked my interest (in auto racing) up a lot,” Cindric said.

    Cindric now races in NASCAR’s Xfinity Series, where he currently sits atop the point standings.

    As the son of Penske Racing president Tim Cindric, Austin was exposed to racing his entire life.
