In South Pittsburg, football is big, and it’s been that way for longer than most people can remember. Just ask 83-year-old Jo Collins. She’s been a Pirates fan since she was just 11 years old. “There’s just something about it,” Ms. Collins said. “Being in the stands is just unbelievable.” The team’s record is what’s unbelievable. On a 27-game winning streak, the South Pittsburg Pirates face second-ranked Trousdale County in the quarterfinals tonight. Three contests separate the team from a second-straight Class 1A state championship. In its history, the team from tiny South Pittsburg has won four state championships: 1969, 1994, 1999 and 2007.
