NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Sunday at Chicago…Brad Keselowski opened the post-season on Sunday the same way he closed the regular season nine days ago – with a trip to Victory Lane. The driver of the Number-2 Team Penske Ford, who entered the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup as the top seed, charged up the middle of the track between leader Kevin Harvick and second-place Kyle Larson coming out of a late-race restart and drove away to his fifth win of the season. The margin of victory over runner-up Jeff Gordon was one-point-seven seconds with Larson, Joey Logano and Harvick completing the top five. With the win, Keselowski automatically qualifies for the Contender Round of the Chase that will kick off October 5th at Kansas Speedway with a reduced field of twelve. Keselowski is the first driver with back-to-back Cup Series victories since Jimmie Johnson won two in a row at Charlotte and Dover to close the month of May and open June earlier this season. Keselowski started twenty-fifth in Sunday’s race but had his first lead at Lap-46 and showed the way for a total of sixty-two trips around the mile-and-a-half Joliet, Illinois, oval – including the final sixteen … Chase drivers dominated the top of the final running order with Larson, who finished third, and Jamie McMurray, ninth, the only non-title contenders in the top ten … Johnson opened his bid for a record-tying seventh championship with a twelfth-place finish … Pole sitter Kyle Busch led forty-six laps on the way to his seventh-place run … Sunday’s race included eighteen lead changes among seven drivers, with six cautions for twenty-eight laps. 

NASCAR Nationwide Series Saturday at Chicago…Kevin Harvick benefited from a two-tire pit stop under caution three-quarters of the way through Saturday’s race at Chicagoland Speedway and turned track position into triumph – notching his forty-fourth career win and fourth of the season.  Junior Motorsports teammates Regan Smith and Chase Elliott finished eighth and tenth, respectively, and their championship battle tightened a bit with just seven races remaining. Elliott’s lead is eighteen points heading into next weekend’s race at Kentucky Speedway.

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Saturday at Chicago…Kyle Busch rallied from the rear of the field not once but twice on Saturday to win the rain-delayed Lucas Oil 225 at Chicagoland Speedway. Matt Crafton finished second and took over the points lead after Johnny Sauter finished fourteenth.

Much ado about very little:  TSSAA officials are reviewing footage from Thursday night’s Lafollette/ Norris Middle School.  The game was forfeited by Lafollette after five of their players were injured on what their coaches and administrators called “illegal” plays by Norris.  There were a total of six personal fouls and two ejections in a first quarter that reportedly featured 37 total yards of combined offense by the two teams alongside 135 total combined penalty yards.  TSSAA officials are deciding whether any of the personal fouls committed by either side were intentional.   Following an injury to a fifth Owl player with about two seconds left in the first quarter, LaFollette forfeited.  Norris head Richie Noe said the personal fouls were not intentional, and after watching the complete 14-minute long video available online, the claims of dirty play or unnecessarily aggressive play by his Senators indeed seem to be overblown.  In the video, one personal foul did involve a Norris player blocking one of LaFollette's players and injuring him, but on a separate play, a LaFollette player threw a Norris player to the ground by his facemask.  Both coaches agreed on very little following the game except that there were personal fouls on both sides of the ball and that both teams had one player each ejected from the game, meaning they will have to miss their team’s next contest, but Noe told the Courier News’s Richard Evans that he didn't feel like any of his players did anything other than play football.  TSSAA has indicated that due to the high number of personal fouls and ejections in a first quarter, they have requested that both teams submit their respective game videos for review.  The 5-0 Senators have dominated all of their opponents so far this season, due in no small part to their size and strength.  (Editor’s note:  WYSH’s initial report on this incident was filed before having had a chance to review the video.  Having had the chance to watch the game film, we agree it does not show any dirty play or intent to injure on the part of the Senators.)   

High School Football…Friday September 12th

Clinton 20 Gibbs 17 (2OT)…It wasn’t pretty and it wasn’t typical, but the Clinton Dragons notched their first District 3-AAA victory of the season as they outlasted Gibbs on the road in a thriller.  The victory, which improved Clinton to 2-2, 1-2 on the season, did not come on the backs of their offensive leaders but rather, was keyed by a defense that held the “ground-and-pound” rushing attack of the Eagles to only 52 yards and an offense that received a second-half pick-me-up from running back Shane Hooks, who tied the game up in the third quarter at 7-7 with the Dragons’ only points of regulation on an 8-yard run with 7:17 to play in the period.  The Gibbs defense was stout as well, preventing Clinton from converting on seven of eight fourth-down conversions in a game that saw the Dragons move the ball extremely well between the twenties but have trouble converting their 325 yards of total offense into points.  Gibbs stunned Clinton just before halftime on an 82-yard bomb from Preston Booth to Ethan Warden that made the score at intermission 7-0.  After winning the coin toss to start their first overtime contest since 2000 (a 22-21 loss to South-Doyle), CHS went on defense and gave up an 8-yard Booth-to-Brendan Wilson scoring toss, which they promptly answered with a 3-yard pass hookup between Tyler Thackerson and Travist Patrick that knotted the score at 14-14.  The Dragons won the second coin toss, opting once again to go on defense first, and surrendered a 22-yard field goal by Buck Hawkins.  Two plays later, the game ended on a Thackerson 5-yard touchdown toss to Hayden Martin.

Anderson County 35 Campbell County 14…AC reaffirmed its status as one of the teams—if not the team—to beat in District 3-AAA as they blew open a close game in the second half and improved to 4-0, 3-0.  The game was tied 14-14 at halftime after each team scored once in each of the game’s first two quarters:  Campbell County on TD passes from Ethan Jeffers to Preston Miller (37 yards) and Joseph Elkins (66 yards and the Mavericks on a Zane Smith-to-Garrett Johnson pass that covered seven yards and a one-yard Smith run.  It was all AC in the second half, as they blanked the Cougars while adding a Matt Fox TD run, a second Smith run that covered 28 yards and a Johnson nine-yard scamper that gave the Mavs a big win at home.

High School Football, Week 2 (Friday Sept. 5)

Oak Ridge 44 Clinton 21…Clinton outgained Oak Ridge 471-396 and stunned the ‘Cats on the first play of the game with a Tyler Thackerson-to-Beau Crisp 80-yard score on a brilliantly-executed play-action pass, but the combination of a very talented Oak Ridge squad (2-0, 1-0), four turnovers and two failed onside-kick attempts doomed the Dragons (1-2, 0-2) as they tried to snap a now-five-game-losing skid versus their longtime rivals.  Clinton was led by Thackerson (253 yards passing, 83 yards rushing; touchdown tosses to Crisp and Travist Patrick; while Aaron Watson added a TD run and Zach Jones had his second straight 100-yard rushing effort.  Logan Fadnek made his first career start and went 11 for 21 for 185 yards, 2 TDs (1 to Tee Higgins, another to Isiah Jones—who also had 84 yards rushing).  TJ Allison, Jaylen Nickerson and Malik Hardy all added rushing TDs for Oak Ridge.

Anderson County 35 Gibbs 14…AC put the game away by halftime as Matt Fox ran for two scores, Zane Smith ran for one and threw another to Brandon Ford, and Aaron Sharp returned an interception for a score for the Mavericks (3-0, 2-0).

Friday at Clinton…Dragons 51 Seymour 14:  The Dragons assumed control of their home opener midway through the second quarter and never looked back as they rolled to 593 total yards of offense and scored 37 unanswered points.  Zach Jones broke out in a big way with 176 yards on rushing and three touchdowns on just 12 carries.  His scoring romps covered 47, 44 and 10 yards.  Tyler Thackerson accounted for 288 total yards (198 passing and 90 rushing), threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Beau Crisp and ran for two more scores.  Aaron Watson had 70 yards rushing and a touchdown for the Dragons, who gained 395 yards on the ground for the game.  Jonathan Bean had five catches for 51 yards and Matt Tolson kicked a 26-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter to get the clock rolling under the mercy rule.  Clinton’s defense forced four turnovers (Isaiah Vibbert interception, fumble recoveries by Travist Patrick, Cain Hammond and Christian Bailey).  Clinton was flagged 12 times for 110 yards.

Friday at Anderson County…Anderson County 35 Clinton 19:  Matt Fox ran for 247 yards and three touchdowns on 27 carries and the Mavericks outgained Clinton 392-248 as AC won the Crosstown Showdown for the 6th straight year and for the 15th time in the last 16 meetings in the rivalry.  Tyler Thackerson led Clinton by completing 19 of 34 passes for 186 yards and a pair of TDs to Beau Crisp.  Thackerson also rushed for one score.  AC led 14-13 after a well-played first half but the Mavs seized momentum right out of halftime, scoring on their second play from scrimmage, a 21-yard Fox TD run set up by a 51-yard pass from Zane Smith to Aaron Sharp.  Garrett Johnson, who scored AC’s first TD of the night as time expired in the first quarter, returned a Thackerson interception in the 4th quarter for a TD that ultimately sealed the victory for AC.

TSSAA changes football playoff system…The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association's Board of Control voted unanimously to change the Division I football playoff system for the 2015-16 and '16-17 school years.  With the change, the state's 32 largest schools based on enrollment will be placed in one class. The remaining 273 schools would then be separated evenly into five classes.  The 32-team class will consist of four regions, with every team advancing to a 32-team postseason bracket. The remaining five classes will each consist of eight regions, with the top four finishers in each region advancing to a 32-team playoff bracket.  Locally, Bearden, Farragut, Hardin Valley, Jefferson County, Sevier County, and William Blount would qualify to be in Class 61. Other schools can elect to move up to 6A, but another school would have to move down.  The upcoming season will be the last year for the current format.
