Friday Night Highlights
Approximately 5,000 fans made
their way to Finley Stadium for the first night of the 55th annual Chattanooga
Prep Football Jamboree.
Tyner Then and Now … In the
inaugural High School Jamboree – Aug. 1960 at UC’s Chamberlain Field - the Ram
Train defeated Soddy Daisy, 7-0, on a TD run by David Daughetes … Friday night
at Finley Stadium, the Ram Train of coach Wayne Turner posted another Jamboree
shutout with a 14-0 triumph against Silverdale as Jaylen Grimes and Keiontae
Halfacre reached the end zone.
Long TD Run – In game No.2, Boyd
Buchanan quarterback ran 45 yards down the left sideline for the Bucs’ first
score … teammate Austin Jackson had 63 yards on four carries.
“We ran the football well and
tackled well with no turnovers,” said Boyd Buchanan coach Grant Reynolds.
Sale Creek second year coach Ron
Cox said, “I liked how we competed tonight and even after Boyd scored that
second touchdown we came right back and got a first down. We’ll be alright this
season and will surprise some folks.”
Exciting Ending – Signal Mountain
10, McCallie 7 … The Eagles trailed 7-3 late in the quarter, but after Chris
Moore recovered a McCallie fumble at midfield, QB Jack Teter found Hunter
Vandyken open down the middle for a 37 yard scoring strike as time ran out.
Long TD Passes … Bradley
Central … 35 yarder Cole Copeland to Tyler Carpenter in 13-0 win against Howard
McCallie … 29 yarder, Javaughn
Craig to Tyler Payne in 10-7 loss to Signal Mountain
Quick Score: Baylor 7,
Cleveland 3 -- Baylor wasted little time in scoring as the Red Raiders marched
70 yards in 2:53 as QB Nick Tiano was 3-4 for 70 yards including a 45 yard
scoring toss to Gage Upshaw … In contrast, Cleveland then went 15 plays in 11:30
and settled for a 35 yard Brandon Romero field goal.
Bad Tuesday … Good Friday
- In Tuesday’s Red Bank-McMinn County
scrimmage, the visiting Lions scored four touchdowns on the Cherokees home turf
… Needless to say McMinn County coach Bo Cagle was not pleased … “We pride
ourselves in playing hard and never quitting. So we came out tonight (Friday)
with a much different mindset than in our scrimmage Tuesday.”
Late in the quarter, Cherokee
QB Corbin Power found Shymez Brabson behind the Lion secondary and made good on
a 58 yard scoring toss with 1:51 remaining for the 7-0 win.
“A totally different effort
tonight,” said coach Cagle. “We played hard the entire quarter. When we do that
we can overcome a lot.”
