Rhea County

Tennessee's high school wrestling power balance has undergone a decided shift.

All high school sporting events in the Chattanooga area were called off because of Tuesday's snowstorm, creating more scheduling problems on top of those caused previously by unusually cold temperatures.

Shane Turner had high hopes when he assumed the head-coaching duties for Red Bank's wrestling program.

The Chattanooga area is well represented in all classifications of this year’s Tennessee Sports Writers Association all-state football teams.

EVENSVILLE, Tenn. — Even with their gaudy passing numbers, the Cleveland Blue Raiders have had no problems with their ground game throughout the 2013 football season.

Three Chattanooga-area players have been named finalists for their respective classifications' Tennessee Titans Mr. Football awards.

All Tennessee kickoffs at 7 p.m. local time

EVENSVILLE, Tenn. — Beyond a coaches' teaching moment, the Rhea County football players haven't forgot their lone defeat this season.

Need to add the Georgia teams once the bracket is out

EVENSVILLE, Tenn. — For the first time since 2008, Rhea County was back in the state football playoffs and the Eagles made the most of it Friday, beating visiting Lenoir City 35-24 in the first round of Tennessee's Class 5A playoffs.

Evensville is over the mountain from Dunlap, but former Sequatchie County football coach Mike Zeller is coming back close to the area where he lived and coached for three years.

Since its inception, the TSSAA football playoff six-classification format has created controversy. But it can also produce intriguing matchups, and this year there's a chance for several area rematches in the first two rounds alone.

The TSSAA announced its high school football playoff brackets Saturday morning and 20 Chattanooga-area teams qualified for the playoffs. First-round games kickoff on Friday and the postseason culminates with the BlueCross Bowl state championship games, to be played Dec. 5-7 at Tennessee Tech University.

The last Friday of Tennessee's high school football regular season has numerous coaches changing their postgame rituals.

Storyline: The District 7-AA championship is on the line. Signal can take it with a win while Sequatchie would need to win and Grundy County beat Notre Dame to get it.
