  • Cougars fall to 4th-ranked AC

    Campbell County came into Friday night’s District 3 football opener at rival Anderson County with a solid game plan.

  • One victory at a time

    Austyn Simmons lunges out of a three-point stance, digs his cleats into the turf, and drives his man backward.
    Play after play, the process is repeated.
    The life of an offensive lineman is about as mundane as it gets in football. However, Austyn revels in the lunch pail task of clearing lanes for running backs that generally get all the glory. The Jellico Elementary School 8th grader is just happy to be part of a team that appreciates him for who is and what he has been through to get here.

    Frustrating.
    In a word, that sums up the first two weeks of the season for Campbell County High School’s football team.

    This year looked to be more of the same until Campbell County blew a 14-point lead in the final three quarters.

    His team leading 32-0 at intermission, Jellico coach Les Stiers began to empty his bench to start the second half.
    “Our kids haven’t had anything like that to celebrate in a long time,’ said Stiers.
