  • High noon for the Green Wave

    Tonight will be like an Old West showdown of gunslingers with the meeting of Midway’s Jason Taylor and Coalfield’s Parker McKinney. Instead of high noon on a dusty street, it will be on the football field.

    “That’s what you prepare for,” Midway Coach Ryen Minton said, “you spend time in practice simulating as many different situations as you may run into.

    The Rockwood Tigers will go on the road tonight to face the Tennessee Associated Press Class 2A No. 9 Oneida Indians.

    “Anytime we get a chance to win a game like the Harriman game it gives you a lot of confidence,” Rockwood Coach John Webb said, “it’s something we can build on.”

    I thought going into the game against UMass, Tennessee would flex their muscles and score around 45 points and maybe give up 3 or 6.

    To the defense’s credit, they did only gave up 13 points.
