Pitcher of the Year: Kayla Floor, Sr., Collins Hill

**Bias, bias, bias......always been Collins Hill and Buford! Recognization never given to the most deserving athletes in the county. Shame on you! There are more athletes in the county besides Collins Hill and Buford.

I am sick and tired of whiney parents talking about bias. I don't have a daughter who plays softball but it was like all the Mill Creek parents who went ballistic because the paper dared to put the picture of the Collins Hill pitcher in the story when Mill Creek won. Then when Collins Hill won the title, not one Mill Creek parent had the class to post a congratulations and display sportsmanship.

Listen, we all know that Buford is a hired band of mercenaries in all sports, but all this talk of bias makes me sick.
