    A strong foundation is key for every house.

    For a powerhouse, it takes the foundation built by this year’s seniors.

    Following an emotional 33-8 loss to District 3-AAA champions Oak Ridge, head coach Justin Price told his team that these seniors are the foundation for something special.

    It was definitely one of the closest games between LaFollette and Jacksboro since the Egg Bowl began in 2012.

    However, this one had more riding on it than just bragging rights for the next year. As Jacksboro defeated the Owls, 6-0, they moved on to middle school championship game.

    The Campbell County Lady Cougars are coming off their first district title since 1991.

    However, they lost a lot from last year’s District 3-AAA powerhouse coming into the 2012-13 season.

    Losing all five starters and their sixth post off the bench, a lot of depth has graduated. Averaging 55 points last season, the Lady Cougars are only returning 8.4 points per game to this season’s squad.

    The LaFollette Country Club has a new pro in the pro shop.

    Richard Comer took over the position in late September, which is a move he couldn’t be happier about.

    “It’s a dream come true,” Comer said. “It’s a dream job. I worked up here for five years before mowing and in the pro shop. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do. My dad did it years ago, and then my Uncle Bobby (Heatherly) did it. It’s kind of like following in their footsteps.”

    Ryan Payne did everything but sell tickets at the front gate Friday night.

    The speedy senior for the Blue Devils became the cure for Jellico’s losing pains, going for five touchdowns and 302 all-purpose yards against the Oakdale Eagles.

    The performance snapped the Blue Devil’s 19-game school record losing streak with a 42-6 victory in Oakdale.

    “It’s been a long time coming,” head coach Brad Lawson said after his ice bath.
