  • Scouting Reports — Campbell County at Seymour High

    This will be the first meeting of the Cougars and Eagles.

    Both teams are slowly making the transition from a ground game to passing attack.

    Senior quarterback Tuffy Shoupe nearly rallied the Cougars to a tie last week during a jamboree game at Anderson County. 

    Seymour receiver/cornerback D.J. Griffin, a 6-foot-4 jumping jack, will be the best athlete on the field Friday night. How the Cougars handle Griffin will likely determine their fate. Eagles running back Corey Todd has looked good in preseason scrimmages.
