Nearly two months have passed since Jellico High School last won a football game.
The leaves were still green and the late summer air was hot and humid when the Blue Devils went on the road to defeat North Greene, 14-8, on Aug. 28.
During the seven weeks that followed, Jellico lost six consecutive games by an average margin of 19. 5 points. The defense gave up a total of 177 points in those six games while the offense struggled to score 60.
