  • Real men wear pink

    Football players normally shy away from wearing anything pink.
    But when Jellico Elementary/Middle School cheer coach Linda McNealy pitched the idea for a football game promotion last year to benefit the fight against breast cancer, all those burly, macho boys couldn’t resist rushing to the aid of their damsels in distress.
    McNealy’s idea soon became an annual event that the entire Jellico community embraced with open arms.

  • Evans, Budd run to 2nd place

    Jasper Budd likely hasn’t run his best race yet, but only because he hasn’t been challenged by anyone in his classification.
    Budd, a senior at Jellico High School, regularly finishes ahead of all the Class A/AA boys at area cross-country meets. That includes Thursday’s meet at Norris Dam, where he was runner-up to Sterling Smith of Karns, a school with over three times the enrollment of Jellico.
    “Our goal this year is to try and get him in the top 25 at state,” said Jellico coach Mike Reynolds.
