Allen Pratt is the principal at South Pittsburg.
jsampson7 you are partly correct about the other dominate team. But Alcoa has beaten them the past two years.
It seems to me that 12 state titles each speaks volumns about domination. I respect coach Grider and coach Price for being honest. Too many other coaches might have given false reasons. Might I also add a somewhat ironic twist: South Pitt's defensive coordinator both played and coach against Alcoa and Maryville. The school's principal is a Maryville graduate and former rebel player. You can break out the records if you want to but as a former Blount County sports personality I am proud of ALL our high schools and their STUDENT athletes.
