Where: North Greene High School; Greeneville, TN
Kickoff: 7:30 p.m.
Records: Jellico (0-1) at North Greene (1-0)
Previous meeting: The Blue Devils met North Greene in their second game of the year last season. North Greene came away victorious, 46-0.
Last week: Jellico didn’t get the start they wanted. Falling 62-8 in the border battle between the Blue Devils and the Yellowjackets of Williamsburg (KY) High School will leave a bad taste in their mouth. As head coach Brad Lawson mentioned previously, the players saw that game as a Tennessee vs. Kentucky match-up.
North Greene came away victorious against Tri-Cities Christian, 51-6. Look for the Huskies to be extremely hyped up in their first home game of the season. The Blue Devils will have to be on their top game this weekend.
Keep an eye on: Over the past three seasons, Jellico has managed a 1-and-2 record against the Huskies, after defeating them 14-8 in 2009. During the 2010 season, Jellico fell by a mere 12-6.
In their preseason scrimmage, the Blue Devils put on a good showing against Tri-Cities Christian. With the offense and defense showing up, Jellico was able to have their best scrimmage of the preseason against Tri-Cities. With the Blue Devils continuing to look at the little things in their games, look for them to make a good showing against the Huskies.
