    Vic King’s Kingston Yellow Jackets participated in their first fall scrimmage Friday as Kingston took on Webb, Morristown East and Wartburg in a four-way scrimmage at Webb School of Knoxville.

    Scoring was hard to keep track of as the scrimmage was played on two fields, one measuring 70 yards and one measuring 90. The scrimmages were also divided into a first-team portion lasting 13 plays for each first team’s offense and seven plays for the second team units.

  • Devils tie Monterey in scrimmage

    The Harriman Blue Devils took part in their first scrimmage of the fall Friday night as Travis Tapp's squad traveled to Monterey and battled to a 14-14 tie with the Wildcats.

    Like most teams who hit the field for their first scrimmage, Harriman's night featured some good plays, but coach Tapp feels his Devils have a lot to work on before taking on Kingston in their Aug. 27 season opener.

  • Computer ratings like Rockwood

    The 2009 season was a good one for the Rockwood Tigers and if Sonny Moore’s 2010 Computer Power Ratings are correct, the 2010 season could be even better for John Webb’s squad.

    Moore’s ratings predict Rockwood will go 9-1 in the regular season and the Tigers are also picked to win the District 3-A title according to the computer.

    The computer basis its preseason predictions on past success and then gives each team in the state a power rating.

  • Tigers tourney run ends

    After weeks of waiting, the Rockwood AAA All-Stars made their postseason debut at the 2010 Dixie Youth AAA State Tournament in Rockwood. The Tigers made their hometown fans proud by winning two games and finishing sixth overall in the 15-team field.

    Rockwood’s tourney run didn’t get off to a great start as the Tigers dropped a 10-2 decision against Madison Central on Friday, but the Tigers bounced back with a 15-2 victory over Tellico Plains on Saturday and a 9-2 victory over Madison Central on Sunday.

  • Kingston falls in opener

    The 2010 Dixie Youth kicked off Thursday evening, but the opening round wasn’t a good one for Kingston as the Yellow Jackets dropped a 14-1 decision to Bolivar.

    Kingston played well early and trailed just 2-1 heading into the bottom of the third inning, but the bottom of the third inning was a disaster for the Jackets as Bolivar took advantage of 11 hits and two walks to score 12 runs and that big inning was enough to end the game early.

  • OS competing in passing league

    With only one week left until high school teams put on the pads, Oliver Springs is spending their time competing in the Air Attack Passing League at Webb School of Knoxville.

    The Bobcats played three games Monday. The first game was a scrimmage game against Powell, but the final two games counted in the league’s standings.

    The first official game for the Bobcats was a 28-12 loss against Knoxville Catholic then Oliver Springs dropped their final game of the evening against Brookstone (Ga.), 42-8.

  • AAA Jackets headed to state

    It wasn’t easy, but the Kingston AAA All-Stars earned a spot in next week’s Dixie Youth AAA State Tournament with a second place finish in the Dixie Youth District 8 AAA Tournament that concluded Wednesday in Harriman.

    Kingston finished the three-game round robin tournament with a 2-1 record and that was one game behind tournament champion Tellico Plains. The Jackets lost their tournament opener 5-1 against Tellico Plains om Saturday, but Kingston bounced back Tuesday with an 8-0 victory over Spring City.
