  • Harriman Blue Devils record big...

    It was a make or break night for Midway last Friday at Harriman. A Midway win could have thrown Region 2A for a loop as far as the playoff standings were concerned.
    For Harriman it was a game they had to win to stay in the chase for a region title. The Blue Devils already have a loss to Coalfield and another loss would have hurt their chances for the title and maybe even making the playoffs.

  • Kingston Yellow Jackets sting...

    Kingston’s Maurice Lane had a huge game Friday night, as the Yellow Jacket senior running back scored four of his team’s five touchdowns in a 35-15 homecoming victory over York Institute.
    “Mo has been banged up this year and has been a little down,” Kingston head coach Brian Pankey said. “I just told him to do what he’s been blessed to do and that’s run the football. He did that tonight.”
    Lane finished the evening with 95 yards and 2 TDs rushing on only nine carries while adding 47 yards and 2 TDs on two receptions.

    Jeremiah Taylor rushed for 115 yards on seven carries with two touchdowns, and Landon Galyon tallied 105 yards on six carries with three touchdowns to lead the Oliver Springs Middle School Bobcats to a 50-0 victory at Coalfield last Tuesday night.
    Taylor scored on runs of 6 and 89 yards, while Galyon scored on runs of 13, 16 and 29 yards.
    Victor Guzman rushed for 25 yards on five carries and scored on a 4-yard run, while Gavin Hill carried 10 times for 79 yards and added a 3-yard TD run.

  • Cherokee Middle defeats Midway...

    The Cherokee Middle Yellow Jackets had already secured the top seed of the TMSAA area 4 AAA west division, but they had a to take care of one last thing - a visit to Midway Middle School - before heading into the playoffs in two weeks.
    The Yellow Jackets efficiently took care of the Green Wave, 34-6, Thursday evening, by scoring five touchdowns on 10 plays in the first half to finish 7-1 on the season. MMS ended the season at 2-6.

  • Round one

    The Rockwood Middle School Tigers defeated the Cumberland Gap Middle School Panthers 34-6 to close out the regular season on Civitan Field at Tom Pemberton Stadium; however, the two teams will square off again Thursday night in the first round of the TMSAA playoffs.
    "We are in the playoffs for the first time in a few years. I'm excited," said Coach Scott Harvey.

    Week seven was a rough one for Roane County's five high school football teams.
     Four of the five suffered defeats with only Midway picking up a victory at Jellico.

    The other will be at Oliver Springs as the Bobcats entertain Rockwood.
    The third game involving a Roane County team this week takes place at Kingston as the Jackets host York Institute for homecoming.

  • Pay It Forward is important to...

    The term Pay it Forward can mean a few different things to different people. But to a Roane County man it means using the gift of sports to give back to those in need.
    Chris Adams feels that God has called him to help others in need and seven years ago, he started something that is now helping tons of people.
    Adams started doing benefit softball and baseball tournaments and started using the name Pay it Forward in the last couple of years.
