  • Braves look to rebound against Scott

    The Braves’ 74-26 loss Sept. 30 does not tell the whole story, says coach David Arvin.

    I have never been one to play with toy guns or even shoot a real gun.
    That was until I went to my friend, Kyle Swadener’s bachelor party on Sept. 24.

    I was a little nervous about shooting a gun, because that is not my kind of thing. I had never held a real gun until I was in front of the shooting target that day.
