  • Red Zone Regrets

    Campbell County racked up 508 yards of offense, but miscues within the red zone put a damper on their upset bid over Hardin Valley.

    Five times, the Cougars were within the 5-yard line, resulting in only two scores. A trip to the 8-yard line also resulted in Campbell County coming away empty handed.

    With two turnovers on downs, a fumble, and an interception inside the 10-yard line, head coach Justin Price was obviously frustrated as the Cougars fell 48-30.

  • Eagles not missing a step

    Most call it a goose egg. Jacksboro calls them Eagle eggs.

    Either way, it’s what Jacksboro opponents have been seeing as their score against the Eagles. Through three games this season, the Jacksboro defense has not been scored on thus far.

    Throughout the season, Soldiers’ Memorial and Eagleton have both seen zeroes on the board, as Norris only scored two off of a late safety. The Senators fell 38-2.

    To Eagle head coach, Mike Miller, it’s an achievement that his team can be proud of.

  • LaFollette's Stone Webb

    Austin Stone and Peyton Webb became a ‘Stone Webb’ for the LaFollette Owls on Thursday night.

    Playing against a tough Lakers team, the two put on a show on the defensive side of the ball. However, the Owls simply couldn’t find a rhythm on offense, slipping 26-0 against Lake City.

    “We played a lot better, excluding the first four minutes of the first quarter,” head coach Chris Honeycutt said. “We bowed our backs pretty good. Offense put us in some bad situations, but I think our defense did pretty good.”

  • Makin’ it look easy

    Sherlock Holmes once said, “Elementary, my dear Watson.”

    In other words, it’s pretty simple.

    At least that’s how the Campbell County elementary cross-country teams made it look on Monday evening at Cove Lake.

    “I think what a lot of people forget is that running is a natural thing,” head coach Anne Browning said. “It’s a very natural activity, especially for children. They don’t know at that point in their life that they have limits. They just run like their hair’s on fire.”

  • No rhythm for Cougars

    Oh snap!

    That’s probably what the Campbell County Cougars were thinking on Thursday night against Anderson County, as the Mavericks rolled to a 36-0 victory in the Powell-Clinch Classic.

    Seeing three snaps sail high, resulting in a loss of 36 yards and a safety, was hard enough. Throw in two sacks for 14 yards of loss, another fumble, an interception, and a turnover on fourth-and-inches and the Cougars simply couldn’t find their rhythm.
