I have a question. What would the near-future TSSAA classification look like without the 1.8 multiplier slapped on private schools whose desire is to remain in the public school division?
• Baylor (5-3, 2-2) at Ensworth (6-1, 3-1), 8 • Bradley Central (2-5, 0-3) at Soddy-Daisy (4-4, 1-3) • Central (6-2, 3-2) at Hixson (6-2, 4-0)
Preston Wilkey had a clear field in front of him, but with time running out and the first down secured, Hixson's senior quarterback opted for a slide near the Red Bank 30-yard line.
On most Friday evenings in the fall, high school football takes center stage in the Tennessee Valley, but this Friday the Samantha Green Show was the star attraction at Hixson High School.
For the Signal Mountain high school volleyball team, it was business as usual as it swept Hixson 3-0 in their Class AA state sectional Thursday night at Signal Mountain.
Storyline: The Eagles complete the Scenic City swing after coming to town and blasting McCallie last week.
One tradition continued Tuesday at Red Bank, and another may have started.
The Hixson High School girls' soccer team is moving on to play in its second straight District 6-A/AA title game after a 7-1 home win over Tyner on Tuesday.
Soddy-Daisy quarterback Hunter Maynor may have been unsung entering the 2014 high school season, but it's unlikely that he is being overlooked.
• district/region game • Bradley Central (0-3, 2-5) at McMinn County (2-1, 2-5) • Brainerd (2-2, 2-6) at Tyner (1-2, 1-6) • Brentwood Academy (7-1, 3-1) at Baylor (5-2, 2-1)
Storyline: The Red Raiders rake their show to Murfreesboro after a tough rivalry loss to McCallie. Baylor's offense never got going last week, and its defensive front will be tested this week against an Oakland offensive line that includes University of Tennessee commitments Kyle Oliver at TE and Jack Jones at OT.
Front-runner: McCallie (7-0, 3-0). The Blue Tornado have beat two previously unbeaten East/Middle region teams in Ensworth and Baylor.
The intensity was there from the start. So was the enthusiasm.
Signal Mountain running back Skye Wilson is through for the year after learning Monday that he has a torn ACL, a torn MCL and torn meniscus in his left knee.
