  • New direction for Roane State...

     

    “If it isn’t broke, then don’t fix it” is a cliche to live by in sports. Most coaches and players are content to keep to a routine and not change.

    For Roane State Lady Raider basketball Coach Monica Boles, this isn’t the case. The long time coach shook things up this summer and started a position focused camp for high schol players.

    This is the first time Boles and her program have attempted something different than the normal camps that focus on fundamentals.

Instead, Lee was diagnosed with AML, which stands for Acute Myeloid Leukemia, and was forced to sit out the 2016 football season fighting the battle of his life.

    The Kingston Yellow Jackets shook off some cobwebs Saturday morning at Maryville College. The Jackets participated in the 7 on 7 Pass Perimeter Practice Day hosted by the college.

    To borrow a slightly modified phrase from a famous television and book series, “Fall is coming.” One could almost feel the cool Friday evenings while watching Kingston go through the scrmmages.

    The teams the Yellow Jackets faced were McMinn Central, Karns, and Grainger. This only scratches the surface of the schools who were present for the event.

    One of the rarely considered numbers of the game is that it takes a crew of six to officiate a high school football game.

    Ensuring that there are six officials available for each contest has been a challenge recently as the TSSAA has seen the number of registered officials for all sports dwindle over the past few years, prompting a statewide recruiting initiative through radio adverts and asking schools to submit names of potential officials.
