    OLIVER SPRINGS-Oakdale has made up a lot of ground in the past two weeks since Randy Miller took over the reigns of the Eagle football program.

    With only 15 or 16 kids during the first few days of practice, less than two weeks later the numbers have grown to nearly 30. Oakdale also performed pretty well against Class AA Oliver Springs as the two teams battled to a 1-1 tie last Friday in a pre-season scrimmage.

    Preseason fall scrimmages are all about getting better no matter the outcome.

    For Harriman head coach Travis Tapp, his Blue Devils may have beat Sequoyah Tuesday night 2-1 in varsity touchdowns scored, but he was anything but happy with his team's performance.

    "I'm very disappointed with how we played," Tapp said. "We didn't play with any intensity and we fumbled way too much. You can't win games when you turn the ball over as much as we did tonight."

    The two have renewed their rivalry by building a coaching friendship, which will benefit both the Sunbright and Wartburg football teams.
