  • ‘Payday’s Coming’

    All Campbell County could do was watch as the 47-yard field goal by JJ Jerman sailed through the uprights, putting the game out of reach.

    The only thing more painful was hearing the “Seymour Eagles!” chant as the buzzer sounded.

    Jerman made his presence known in the first game of the season in L. Hope Dossett Stadium. With kicks of 30, 42, and 47, he proved to be the difference maker. He also added two extra points to his credentials, as the Cougars fell 30-20.

    However, for the Cougars, they know their hard work is going to pay off soon.

  • Puttin’ on steam

     Two of General Robert Neyland’s maxims were “Play for and make the breaks, and when one comes your way – Score! If at first the game or the breaks go against you, don’t let up…put on more steam.”

                The Campbell County Cougars could not have put those words into better use than they did Thursday night in the stadium named after Neyland himself.

  • Jellico playing back to basics...

                A perfect step, good hand placement, and a good snap are crucial.

                In football, it’s the little things that can make the difference between a win and a loss. For Jellico, it’s become their focus.

  • Eagles looking to better season

                Falling just short in the finals last season, the Jacksboro Eagles are looking to come back strong in their 2012 campaign. With an abundance of experienced talent on the squad, the finals may be all they have to worry about.

  • Changing lives through running

                For many, running is something that is never though about. However, in Campbell County, it’s becoming a way of life for some youngsters.

                The Campbell County elementary and middle school cross-country runners are beginning their eighth season. This season, they’ve grown the program bigger then any previous year.

  • Collette steps down from Cougar...

                After four years as the head coach of the Campbell County Cougars, Brad Collette has stepped down. Following a 12-22 season in 2012, the search now begins for a new head coach.

    The job is now being posted, according to Campbell County Athletic Director Sherry Chapman.  With the search underway, Chapman hopes the Cougars will have someone in place before Labor Day.

                For Collette, the decision was a hard one.

  • LMS defensive line ready for the...

    Many coaches know football games are won in the trenches. If that battle depends on size, the LaFollette Owls have already won.

    With a defensive front four of Mike Rhoads, Dallas Law, Tanner Boston and Peyton Webb, the Owls have some size up front. To defensive coordinator Jake Snider, they are bigger than any team that LaFollette will face in 2012.
