  • Runnin' Riley Faulkner

    It may have been an unusually cold day on Monday afternoon, but Riley Faulkner stayed hot.

    The third grade runner has run six races this season on the elementary cross country team, and he’s taken the first place finish in all six.

    In Monday’s region meet, Riley Faulkner posted a 5:54, which was good enough to overtake Davis Clem, a fifth grader in the Episcopal School.

  • Eagles keep Egg Bowl trophy

    “This is no longer a game. This is a war.”

    Jacksboro defensive specialist, Jared Ray said it best last Thursday night as the Eagles took on LaFollette in the 12th annual Egg Bowl.

    Jacksboro’s stingy defense managed to stop a quick witted Owl offense in order to take the game, 28-8.

    “He kind of summed it up there,” Eagle head coach Mike Miller said. “If we had one game that the boys wanted to be sure they won, it would be this one. That’s just kids.”

  • Cougars prove fight against...

    The Cougars may have traveled to Dan Y. Boring Stadium, but there was certainly nothing boring about their game.

    Facing off with one of Tennessee’s top running backs in JaJuan Stinson, Campbell County had a rough hill to climb. The speedy 5-foot-7 junior was made out to be 12-foot tall after having rushed 416 yards the week before against Clinton. That number ranks as the seventh highest mark ever posted in the state.

    Against the Cougars, however, he only managed 16 yards in the first half as the Bobcats took the win, 21-7.

  • Little things, commitment slow...

    Coming out of the first quarter on Friday night, it looked like Jellico was in fine shape, trailing only 14-8.

    However, with three minutes left in the second quarter, those little mistakes became the big talk for the Blue Devils, as they fell 55-8.

    Josh Lay, who returned it to the Bobcat 26-yard line, stripped Oliver Spring’s Shawn Childress of the ball. On Jellico’s next play, they gave it back to the Bobcats.

  • Oneida snaps Jacksboro's...

    Oneida had more options than the Sears catalog.

    Running a single-wing offense, the Indians found a way to snap the Eagles’ five-game winning streak last Thursday night in the battle of unbeatens.

    Oneida compiled 400 yards across the ground on 56 carries, while using 10 different runners en route to a 34-6 victory.

  • Egg Bowl set for Thursday night

    This one shouldn’t go over easy.

    The 12th annual Egg Bowl is set for tonight (Thursday) as the LaFollette Owls travel to Jacksboro Middle School to take on the Eagles in what some are calling the “biggest game of the year.”

    The battle is set for 7 p.m., and it is already boiling up to be a good one.

    Since the beginning of the season, the Owls have scrambled from an 0-3 record at the start. Winning three straight, LaFollette will come into this game totally even at 3-3.

  • Taylor finishes 35th in state...

    Campbell County High School junior Lindsay Taylor competed in the Class AAA state golf tournament on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 25-26 in Manchester.

    The Willowbrook Golf Course wasn’t kind to Taylor on the first day of competition, as Barren’s Triangle got the best of the first-time state golfer. Taylor finished the day with an 18-over-par 90.

    On Tuesday, however, she bounced back, combining her two-day total for an overall 179 score. That score was good enough for 35th place out of the 56 competitors.
