Red Raven Volleyball Prepares for Nation's Top Team


Having won 13 of their past 14 matches, the Coffeyville Red Raven volleyball team looks to carry momentum on the road for a date with the top team in the country.


CCC goes head to head with the #1 Johnson County Cavaliers, in a rematch of last year's Plains District A Championship. Johnson County remains unbeaten in 2023 with a 19-0 record, the second longest unbeaten streak in program history.


The Red Ravens utilize two setters in two different floor spots. Head coach Deardin Kelley says it's due to maximizing talents on both offense and defense.


Coffeyville is 13-1 following a 2-7 start to the season, and look to maintain their status in the top half of the conference. Kelley says she is hopeful her team will prove they belong with championship contenders.


CCC and Johnson County battle tomorrow night at 6:30 p.m.

KSU Running Back Wins Big 12 Offensive Player of Week


Sophomore running back DJ Giddens has been named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week, following one of the best performances by a Kansas State running back in school history.


Giddens finished the afternoon with 207 rushing yards and four touchdowns, the first time in KSU history a running back has rushed for 200 yards and four TDs. Giddens becomes the first Wildcat rusher with a 200 yard game since Alex Barnes in 2018.


Giddens also caught eight passes for 86 yards, bringing his total yardage to 293 in the win over UCF. It is the third most yards from scrimmage in Wildcat history, behind a pair of games from Darren Sproles in 2003 and 2004.


KSU had a difficult task to replace the production of Deuce Vaughn, however so far Giddens is 11th in the nation in rushing yards per game, and fourth in the Big 12 in touchdowns. The Wildcats are on a bye week, and will face Oklahoma State in Stillwater next Friday.

Jayhawks Star Named Big 12 Defensive Player of Week


For the second time in his collegiate career, junior cornerback Cobee Bryant has been named the premiere defender in the Big 12 conference this week.


Bryant led a KU defense to a successful afternoon against BYU, forcing a fumble and returning it for the first touchdown of the game. It was the fourth career defensive TD for the defensive back.


In the second half, Bryant also added his second interception of the season. Bryant is the first Jayhawk defender with multiple conference player of the week awards since Joe Dineen in 2017.


The Jayhawks are freshly inserted in the AP Top 25 at #24, and will travel to Austin to take on the #3 Texas Longhorns this weekend.

Red Ravens Make QB Change, Fall Against Hutchinson


The Coffeyville Community College Red Ravens are still looking for an identity offensively in 2023, which led to a quarterback change during a 37-7 loss to Hutchinson.


The score was slightly misleading, with the Ravens digging an early 17-0 hole in the first quarter, and the teams playing level for the next two quarters. Freshman quarterback Geremiah Moore, from Wichita Northwest High School, saw his first action for the Ravens this season, entering in the second quarter and playing the remainder of the game.


Moore had mixed results against the top defense in the nation, throwing the ball for 116 yards but also throwing an interception. Moore also had 53 yards rushing, displaying his speed and athleticism that CCC valued during recruiting.


The lone touchdown scored by the Red Ravens came on a fumble recovery touchdown in the second quarter.


CCC is now 0-4 on the season, and return home to battle the Ellsworth Panthers this weekend.

Giddens Runs for 200 Yards as Wildcats Edge UCF


DJ Giddens had a career day for the Wildcats, as Kansas State took care of business in their conference opener.


KSU defeated the UCF Golden Knights by a final score of 44-31, with Giddens running for 207 yards and four touchdowns.


Quarterback Will Howard battled injury and still managed to throw for 255 yards on the game. The Wildcats rushing game was dominant, running for 281 yards and six rushing touchdowns.


Kansas State is 3-1 on the season, avenging last week's loss to Missouri, and will enter the bye week with momentum. KSU travels to Stillwater to play Oklahoma State next Friday.

Chiefs Roll Over Bears at Arrowhead


The Kansas City Chiefs shook off any pregame jitters, and gave fans a victory they couldn't have envisioned in their wildest dreams.


Chicago knew the Chiefs would be trouble when they walked in, with Kansas City making the Bears defense look out of style.


Patrick Mahomes had bad blood with the Chicago secondary, throwing for 272 yards and three touchdowns. Forever and always, Mahomes found Travis Kelce in the endzone for the 48th time.


Isaiah Pacheco and Clyde Edwards-Helaire were running through a lavender haze, scoring on the ground one time each.


Kansas City's defense was fearless on the afternoon against Bears quarterback Justin Fields, who spent much of the day watching his offensive line struggle like castles crumbling.


The Chiefs move to 2-1 on the season, and will be welcomed to New York when they face the Jets in Week 4.

Red Ravens Battle #1 Hutchinson


The Coffeyville Community College Red Ravens return from the bye week and travel to face the top ranked team in the nation.


CCC squares off with the Hutchinson Blue Dragons in a matchup of one of the best rivalries JUCO has to offer.


The Ravens have dropped each of the first three games of the season, following lofty preseason expectations. Head Coach Jeff Leiker says the team has learned a tough lesson to open the season.


Hutchinson has won all three games this season in blowout fashion, featuring a Top 5 defense in the country, and an offense averaging nearly 300 rushing yards per game. Leiker says his defense will need to be in position to limit the talented skill players of the Blue Dragons.


Coverage of the Coffeyville Red Ravens and the Hutchinson Blue Dragons begins at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow with kickoff at 7 on US 98.

Caney Looking To Stay Amped Against Chargers


 The Caney Valley Bullpups take the short trip tonight to take on the Cherryvale Chargers in the first game of district play this season.


 Coach Criss Davis says he was proud of the play of both offensive and defensive lines last week, adding that their play each week determines whether the Bullpup team wins or loses. Davis adds that while Caney will always be a "run first" team, they've been working on the passing game this season.


 With a group of backs led by Jackson Griffin and Ben Matthews seeing action at the tight end position, the Bullpups continue to work on a week-to-week basis, with the goal of another long playoff run.


 Tonight's matchup at Cherryvale begins at 7:00 p.m. Pregame begins at approximately 6:45 on Greatest Hits 104.1.

Rivalry Week in Montgomery County


It's rivalry week in Montgomery County as the Nado head to Independence to take on the Bulldogs on their Homecoming night.


Coffeyville comes into the game on a two-game win streak sitting and 2-1 and Independence is on a two-game losing streak at 1-2. Head Coach Deonta Wade says the teams play a similar style of football where they want to run the football and play good defense.


Defensively, Coffeyville and Independence are both in the top five in points allowed and the Nado are number two in rush defense and number five in total defense. Offensively, Coffeyville and Independence are both outside the top 10 in all four offensive team stats, so we could see a defensive battle tomorrow night.

Pregame will start tomorrow night at 6:35pm with kick-off at 7:00pm on Sonshine 98.9 KQQF.

Sedan Hosts West Elk in HS Game of the Week


Week 4 of the High School Football Game of the Week brings us to Sedan, where the Blue Devils host the rival West Elk Patriots.


Both teams will be looking to rebound from a Week 3 loss, which sent Sedan to 1-2 on the season, and gave the Patriots their first loss of 2023.


Blue Devils coach Mick Holt says the atmosphere is always different when these two teams square off.


Holt and Patriots head coach Chris Haag have been coaching on opposing sidelines for years, but have formed a friendship off the field. Haag says the friendship adds another layer to the rivalry between the schools.


Coverage of the West Elk Patriots and the Sedan Blue Devils begins tomorrow night at 6:45 p.m. with kickoff at 7, on the Mighty 690, KGGF.

Royals Outfielder Emerging as Power Bat


Young starting pitcher Cole Ragans has already impressed in his time in Kansas City, and now another mid-season acquisition is becoming an exciting piece of the future.


Outfielder Nelson Velazquez hit his 15th home run of the season in yesterday's 6-2 win over the Cleveland Guardians. Velazquez has 12 home runs and 25 runs batted in since being traded to the Royals in July.


In just 33 games in Kansas City, Velazquez has put up unbelievable stats, on pace for 59 home runs and 123 runs batted in over a full season. Velazquez also has the highest Isolated Slugging Percentage in Royals franchise history, for any player with at least 30 games played.


Velazquez is just 24 years old, and can play all three outfield positions, making him a very exciting piece for the 2024 team.

Mahomes Speaks on New Contract


Fresh off of agreeing to a restructured contract that pays the most money ever in a four year span, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes spoke to the media for the first time.


Mahomes and the Chiefs agreed to the deal earlier this week, which pays Mahomes $210.6 million before 2026. He says he's thankful to be a part of the Chiefs family for years to come.


Throughout his career, Mahomes has made it known that he values winning over anything else. He says that this new deal allows him to get paid his worth, but also keeps the door open to keep talented players in Kansas City.


The NFL salary cap is increasing annually, with quarterbacks being paid more than ever before. Mahomes says he knows it's his responsibility to make sure the progress continues for the value of QBs.


Mahomes and the Chiefs battle the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Red Raven Freshman Emerging as Star


Red Raven volleyball has won nine consecutive games, with a major part of that success coming from an impact freshman.


Madison Grekstas is an outside hitter from Huntsville, Texas, and was unsure if she would even play college volleyball. She says it's a great feeling to be able to contribute immediately at the college level.


Grekstas spent the first ten matches of the season learning the college game, having highs and lows to begin her career. However, she has double-digit kills in seven of the past eight matches, including a career high 19 against Lamar on September 11th.


She says competing with talented teammates, such as sophomore Sarah Madsen, has taught her valuable advice already for her development.


CCC has thrived in their home gym this season, off to an 8-0 start at Nellis Hall in 2023. Grekstas says the home games are her favorite part of the experience so far.


The Red Ravens look to make it ten in a row tomorrow night against KCK, in a matchup of preseason conference championship contenders.

Jayhawks Basketball Player Suspended from Program


A Kansas basketball transfer from this offseason has been suspended from the program following a rape allegation.


Arterio Morris transferred to KU in the spring after spending his freshman season at the University of Texas. Morris was charged with a misdemeanor assualt charge on a female while at Texas last year.


CBS Sports Insider Gary Parrish says there are still details to learn about this situation.


Morris is a former five-star prospect that was expected to see solid playing time for the Jayhawks this season. Parrish says losing Morris is difficult, but not significant to the success of KU this season.


The investigation is currently ongoing, and no charges have been filed at this time.

Red Raven Guard Commits to D1 School


An impact freshman from last year's Red Raven men's basketball team will forego his remaining year of eligibility, and make the jump to Division 1.


Guard Landon Glasper announced his intentions to play for the North Carolina A&T Bulldogs this season, joining CCC teammate Camian Shell once again.


Glasper is an elite level scorer, averaging 13.9 points per game, including memorable performances such as 27 vs Navarro, 26 vs Independence, 26 vs Dodge City, and 31 vs Barton in the Region VI Semifinals.


Glasper averaged 28 points per game in the postseason for the Ravens last season. He was Honorable Mention All-KJCCC Conference as well in his freshman season.

Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes Agree to Restructured Contract


The reigning Super Bowl MVP has agreed to a restructured contract with the Kansas City Chiefs.


Quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs are in agreement on the terms of the updated deal, which pays Mahomes $210.6 million between 2023 and 2026, the most money ever given out in a four year period in the NFL.


The salary for Mahomes for each of the next four seasons is also fully guaranteed. The Chiefs and Mahomes' camp plan to continue working on the contract after the season.


Mahomes will now make $52.5 million annually, second in the NFL behind Cincinnati's Joe Burrow, who makes $55 million a year.


Mahomes is a two-time MVP, two-time Super Bowl champion, and one of the most talented signal callers professional football has ever seen. Mahomes just turned 28 yesterday, and is under contract through the 2031 season.

Red Raven Soccer Sweeps Doubleheader with Garden City


There's no place like home for the Coffeyville Community College Red Ravens, who won a massive conference doubleheader with Garden City.


The Lady Ravens began the evening with a thrilling 3-2 victory over the Broncbusters. The first goal was courtesy of a miscue from the Garden defense, and set the Ravens up for their second conference victory of the season.


The men followed the opening act with a 5-1 victory of their own. The Red Ravens took a 2-1 lead to the locker room, before a trio of second half goals put the game out of reach. Coffeyville is 5-2-2 on the season, with their only losses coming to #3 Cowley and #11 Barton.


Both programs will be back in action at home on Wednesday against the Seward County Saints, with the women playing at 4 p.m. and the men at 6 p.m.

Mahomes, Kelce Break Chiefs All Time TD Record


Travis Kelce returned to the field for the first time in 2023, and set a Chiefs record in his first game back.


Patrick Mahomes found Kelce for a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, the 47th time the Mahomes-Kelce connection has led to six points. That passes Len Dawson and Otis Taylor for the most touchdowns by a quarterback-receiver combo in team history.


Kelce had a relatively quiet afternoon by his standards, finishing with four catches for 26 yards and the touchdown. The Chiefs won the game 17-9, earning their first win of 2023.


Travis Kelce now has 70 career touchdown catches, which is seven away from breaking Tony Gonzalez's Chiefs franchise record.

Chiefs Eager to Rebound Against Jaguars


The Kansas City Chiefs will get a second chance at a first impression this weekend.


Kansas City travels to Jacksonville to battle the Jaguars in an AFC Divisional Playoff rematch. Key star players Travis Kelce and Chris Jones are expected back in the lineup this week for Andy Reid.


ESPN analyst Marcus Spears says the return of Jones completely changes the Chiefs' defense.


The wide receiver room will need to perform better in Week 2, after Skyy Moore ended without a catch and Kadarius Toney dropped three passes from Patrick Mahomes.


Toney says he takes full responsibility, and is moving on to this week.


Pregame for the Kansas City Chiefs and the Jacksonville Jaguars begins at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday with kickoff at noon, on the Mighty 690, KGGF.

Nado Improve to 2-1 with Dominate Win over Columbus


The Nado make it two in a row with a 42-12 win on the road at Columbus.


Coffeyville started strong on the back of Aaron Tunstall who scored a 42-yard touchdown on the second play of the game and a 20-yard touchdown on the fourth play. Penalties would slow Coffeyville's offense after the hot start, allowing Columbus to cut the lead to eight on a double pass as Jett Tanner hit Jace Midgett for a 93-yard touchdown. The Nado would clean things up enough to extend their lead to 28-6 heading into halftime.


Coffeyville continued its scoring run in the second half adding two more touchdowns for 28 unanswered points and a 42-6 lead. The Titans would score on their final play of the game on a four-yard touchdown to Tanner, who finished with one passing and one receiving touchdown.


Tunstall finished the game with 146 yards on 10 carries and two scores. Axel Erne threw for 105 yards and two touchdowns, one to Amanie Luten and one to Keyshawn Hayes. Josh Shobe and Jeremy Colbert added a touchdown a piece on the ground. The Nado would hold Columbus to -23 yards rushing.


Coffeyville improves to 2-1 and will take on Independence on the road for Indy's homecoming.

Running back Garrett Davidson added a rushing touchdown for the Bullpups, who led 45-0 at the half, and 52-8 at the end of the 3rd quarter.

 The passing attack for the Bullpups was on display in the 2nd half. Quarterback Garrett Watson threw three touchdown passes; all three to tight end Ben Matthews, and all three were receptions of over 20 yards.

Wildcats Battle Missouri in Power 5 Showdown


A week after the Texas Longhorns went on the road and knocked off an SEC team, the Kansas State Wildcats look to do the same this weekend.


The Wildcats battle the Missouri Tigers in a matchup of 2-0 schools that know each other well. Missouri holds the series lead at 60-33-5, however it was KSU who had the upper hand last season in a 40-12 victory.


Coach Chris Klieman says Missouri has impressive talent and experience everywhere on the field.


Kansas State boasts the top rushing defense in the nation through two weeks, and also rank Top 10 nationally in tackles for loss, scoring defense, and sacks.


Klieman says his defense still has another level to unlock.


Coverage of the Kansas State Wildcats and Missouri Tigers begins at 11:00 a.m. tomorrow on the Mighty 690, KGGF.

Jayhawk Football Looking for Start 3-0


The Kansas Jayhawks will take the field this weekend looking to start 3-0 in back to back seasons, which hasn't happened since 1991-92.


KU travels to Reno, Nevada for a non-conference battle with the Nevada Wolfpack of the Mountain West conference. This will be the first game between the schools in the history of the programs. The Jayhawks haven't played a game in Pacific Time since 2002 against UNLV.


Coach Lance Leipold says Nevada brings a lot of different looks.


The Jayhawks racked up 539 total yards of offense against Illinois, with Devin Neal averaging 12 yards per carry and Jalon Daniels throwing for 277 yards. KU also had six sacks against Illinois, the most by a Jayhawk defense since 2009.

Kansas State Basketball Adds Transfer


Jerome Tang and the Kansas State Wildcats have another player heading to Manhattan.


Former Mississippi State Bulldog and Providence Friar, Will McNair Jr, announced his intent to transfer to Kansas State earlier today.


McNair brings a massive physical frame to Manhattan, standing 6-foot-11 and weighing 265 pounds. The redshirt senior entered the transfer portal early last week.


The forward traveled with Providence on a summer tour to Spain last month, where he averaged nine points and eight rebounds per game, the best numbers of his career.


McNair will provide size and depth to the 2023-24 Kansas State roster.

Bullpups Look To Rebound In Homecoming Game Against Eureka


 The Caney Valley Bullpups look to get back on track after last week's 28-8 loss to Humboldt as they take on the Eureka Tornadoes for Homecoming.

 For one of the few times in recent history, the clock worked against Caney, as Humboldt QB Blake Ellis used a balance of passing and rushing to keep the Caney defense on the field more than normal. Caney running back Jackson Griffin accounted for the lone touchdown and subsequent two point conversion.

 Eureka is 1-1 on the season; they'll need a good rotation on the defensive line to go against the platoon of Caney backs.

 Homecoming coronation begins at 6:00 with pregame starting at 6:45 and kickoff at 7:00 p.m. on Greatest Hits 104.1.
