Austin Ratliff Racked up almost 200 yards in offense against concord.


After opening the season against the top ranked pre-season Mountain East Conference contenders in Shepherd, Notre Dame, and UVa-Wise, the Pioneers were still looking for their first MEC win when they returned home on October 7.

At (1-4), Glenville State was focused on making October their month. They were hungry for a win as they welcomed the Concord Mountain Lions to Glenville.

After electing to receive the opening kickoff, freshman Jaylen McNair and the Pioneers used a series of first downs to move down the field. A 22-yard pass from McNair to senior DJ Williams put Glenville on the board first, 7-0.

The Pioneer defense took the field to do their part shutting the Mountain Lions down just inside GSC territory; the Concord punt brought the Pioneer offense back on the field at their own six-yard line.

TWO IN A ROW – Dominique Gibson, the Pioneer’s senior running back, rushed for 126 yards at WV State. It was his second straight 100+ yard game of the season!


After keeping the game close throughout the first half, Glenville State finally took the lead, over Homecoming host West Virginia State University last Saturday, Sept. 30, midway through the third quarter.

The Pioneers tied things up, 21-21, with their opening possession of the half - an eleven play, 78 yard drive that used a 15-yard pass from Jaylen McNair to DJ Williams to find the endzone.

Thirty seconds later, the Pioneer offense returned to the field following a forced fumble by Earon Settles recovered by Tay Twines who returned it 52 yards to the one-yard line before being stopped just short of the endzone.

Runningback Dominique Gibson would carry it in for the yard and the score, 28-21.

SENIOR TEAMWORK – Three of GCHS’s four seniors got into the action on this stop. While Jordan Brown (#51) appears to be making the play, Gunnar Haley (#1) and Hunter Self (#12) each played a role.


It has been a rough start to the 2017 season for the Gilmer County Titans.

Six weeks into the 2017 season, and the Titans find themselves (0-5).

GCHS opened up their season at home the last Friday in August (August 25).

In their first meeting with Clay County High School in many years, the Titans were defeated, 31-6.

A week later (September 1), the Titans played through the rain, but the Lumberjacks of Richwood were simply too much to handle, 62-6.
