  • New TWRA leadership

      NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Fisheries Division is now under new leadership with the earlier appointments of Bobby Wilson as Fisheries Chief and Frank Fiss as Assistant Chief.

  • Big games highlight 2010 season

        Coaches always preach the importance of taking one game at a time and no one game means more than another.

    Fans, on the other hand, don’t have to worry about overlooking an opponent and they often circle games on the calender that they think can make or break a season.

    Here are some of the games that have probably been circled on this year’s calendar by fans across the county.

  • Roane teams compete in jamboree


    Roane County football fans got to see four of the county's five high schools in action Friday night as Harriman, Midway, Oliver Springs and Rockwood all participated in the 2010 Roane County Jamboree in Harriman.

  • Offenses put up big numbers in...

    The scoreboard at Rockwood's Civitan Field wasn't turned on for Thursday's scrimmage between the host Tigers and visiting Scott Highlanders, but if it was on it would have got quite a workout as the Tigers and Highlanders had no trouble moving the ball in a two-hour scrimmage that would see Scott come out on top, 33-28.

    Tiger head coach John Webb, however, knew his defense would have problems against the Highlanders' high-octane spread offense led by 2,000-yard passer Jacob Sexton.

  • Kingston participates in four-...

    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.
