    High school football fans in attendance at 2008 Roane County Football Jamboree got a chance to see four of Roane County’s five teams on Friday as well as Oakdale and Coalfield, but what they didn’t see was a lot of offense as only Harriman and Oakdale found the end zone.

    If a poll had been taken among Roane County softball teams about who was the best hitter in 2008, Oliver Springs’ Ellie Morgan would have most certainly been at or near the top of the list. Now the former Lady ‘Cat will be doing her damage close to home as the hard-hitting C/3B signed scholarship papers Tuesday afternoon with Roane State Community College.

    Speed kills.

    That was the moral of the scrimmage between the Harriman Blue Devils and the Stone Memorial Panthers Friday as Harriman made short work of Stone Memorial by a 4-2 margin.

    “I thought tonight we picked up our intensity and we played better than we did Tuesday against Sequoyah,” stated Harriman head coach Travis Tapp. “We also got to play a lot of kids tonight and we even had four of our freshmen in the scrimmage with our varsity team at one point.”

    ROCKWOOD - Coalfield started off slow, but ended with a bang at Rockwood during a three-way scrimmage against Rockwood and Pigeon Forge last Thursday evening.

    In varsity work, Coalfield earned a 1-0 win over Class AAA Pigeon Forge and ended up with a 2-2 stalemate against Class AA Rockwood.

    First-year head coach Keith Henry likes the direction his Coalfield team is headed after a couple of scrimmages under their belt.

    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.

    The Kingston Yellow Jackets saw a lot of different looks Friday evening as Vic King’s squad took on Webb, Wartburg and Seymour in a four-way scrimmage at Webb.

    In what was clearly a tale of two halves Thursday evening, the Rockwood Tigers battled Coalfield and Pigeon Forge to a 4-4 tie in a three-way scrimmage at Civitan Field.

  • Preseason work underway

    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."

    WARTBURG — Defense was the theme of Sunbright and Wartburg’s three hours of scrimmage against each other last Friday evening.

    When the final tally came in, Wartburg’s varsity enjoyed a 1-0 win, while the Bulldogs came out with a 2-0 victory in junior varsity action.
