  • Wells reflects on remarkable run

    Dewayne Wells leans comfortably back into his office chair, props his feet up onto the desk and stares contemplatively at photographs of each of his varsity teams that adorn the walls of the coach’s office inside the Campbell County High School Football Field House.
    Each photograph has a treasure trove of war stories to tell: of young men in pitched battle, of shared triumph and tragedy, of a brotherly bond not easily broken. The old ball coach can tell you all about their lives, which are linked forever with his own.

    Campbell County High School senior lineman Keenan Evans turned a few heads Saturday afternoon during the 4th annual Toyota East vs. West Tennessee All-Star Classic at Carson-Newman College.
    Evans, who started on defense for the East, didn’t let the opportunity go to waste. He was in on several key plays including a first-half sack of West team quarterback Jake Overby from the University School of Jackson.
    “Keenan was super,” said Seymour head football coach Jim Moore, who coached the defensive linemen for the East team.

  • CCHS teams have big week

    Opening night of the Campbell County Elementary/Middle School Basketball Tournament went off without a hitch.
    The second night, however, was a different story.
