Never too early:  CHS, AC announce 2015 football schedules:  The high school football season just ended and we are about to hit the halfway point of the basketball regular season but Clinton and Anderson County High Schools have released their football schedules for 2015.  The schedules are radically different than in years past with several familiar foes replaced by new District and non-District opponents. 

Clinton will open its 2015 slate at Oak Ridge in a District game on August 21st, host Morristown East on August 28th and play host to District foe Karns on September 4th.  On September 11th, the Dragons will visit Rhea County, followed by a District home game on September 18th with Campbell County and the Crosstown Showdown at home against Anderson County closing out the month of September.  Clinton will visit Lenoir City October 2nd for a District game, followed by a trip to CAK on October 9th.  Following a bye week, the Dragons play at Heritage on October 23rd and host new District foe Farragut on October 30th to close out the regular season.  . 

Anderson County’s schedule begins on August 21st at Greeneville, with the Mavericks hosting Heritage on August 28th.  AC visits defending state champion and new District rival Fulton on September 4th and then hosts Oak Ridge on the 11th.  September 18th, AC will host District foe Union County for Homecoming and then travels to Clinton the following week.  AC will host Catholic on October 2nd in what is now a District game.  The Mavericks’ bye week is October 9th, followed by a home game on the 16th against District opponent Central, a trip to Morristown East on October 23rd and closing the season on the road in a District game at Carter.

2 ET standouts named “Mr. Football”:  Tennessee’s best high school football players for 2014 were recognized at the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards luncheon hosted by the Tennessee Titans.  Approximately 600 people, including the honorees, their families, coaches, school administrators and members of the media from all parts of the state, attended the 2014 luncheon at the Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center.  “This is such an outstanding honor for all 33 of the young men recognized today at the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards,” said Bernard Childress, Executive Director of the TSSAA.  “They were here not only due to their athletic ability that they displayed on the field throughout the season, but just as much for their outstanding character and academic achievements.”  High school head coaches and members of the media nominated the finalists. A committee of statewide sports writers selected winners based on performance in the 2014 regular season. Academics and character were also taken into consideration.  The awards were presented to the top back and lineman in each of the five classifications of the Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association. The top kickers in the state were also recognized. There were three finalists in this category, regardless of their school’s classification.  The Titans became sponsors of the Mr. Football Awards in 2007.

Dragons/Wildcats hoops doubleheader rescheduled:  The Clinton High School basketball doubleheader scheduled for Friday November 21st against Oak Ridge has been rescheduled for Monday December 1st to accommodate the fact that so many members of Oak Ridge’s boys’ team are still participating in football.  The games will be played at the Don Lockard Gymnasium at Clinton High School and the girls’ varsity game will tip off at 6:30 pm, followed by the boys’ game.  You will be able to listen to the games on WYSH’s Fox & Farley Full Court Press.

High School basketball scores Tuesday November 18th

Clinton girls 37 Karns 36...It wasn't pretty, but the Lady Dragons notched the first win for first-year head coach Alicia Phillips with a gritty effort on the road.  Clinton made some clutch free throws down the stretch to seal the win and even their record at 1-1.  Jordan Whitt led CHS with 10 points.

Clinton boys 94 Karns 92 (OT)...Clinton scored nine points in the final 29.8 seconds to erase a seven-point deficit at Karns and emerged with an improbable 94-92 win.  CHS also rallied from down 12 in the third quarter and sent it to overtime on a Dillon Shirley fall-away jumper in the lane at the buzzer.  Trailing 92-85 with under 30 seconds to play in OT, Cole Lockard converted a four-point play, which was followed by a Beaver turnover, which led to a Shirley three that tied the game.  Another errant Karns pass gave CHS the ball and Shirley was fouled.  He hit both charity shots and the Dragons forced a turnover on the other end of the floor to preserve the victory and move to 1-3 on the season.  Shirley finished with 29 points while J'Quan Thomas notched 25 and Gavin Shelton added 14.

TSSAA approves reclassification, realignments:  Thursday, the TSSAA Board of Control finalized its realignment of the state’s high school football teams and there are plenty of changes affecting our local teams.  The state’s new Class 6A will be made up of the 31 largest schools in the state by enrollment, except for Maryville, which successfully petitioned the state to move from 5A to 6A.  All 32 6A teams will qualify for the postseason while the remaining Division I classifications will send the top four finishers in each Region to the postseason.  The realignment will remain in effect for at least the next two academic years, beginning in 2015.  Locally, the Clinton Dragons are in the new Region 3-5A with Campbell County, Oak Ridge, Farragut, Karns and Lenoir City.  Anderson County has moved to Class 4A and will play in Region 2 with Fulton, Carter, Catholic, Central and Union County.  The list of regions served by this radio station is below, with local teams in italics.
