    Oops, I thought I was replying to RTR. My bad!

    RTR, we always downplay our team, even if we think we will be good haha. Well, I can't speak for everybody I don't guess, but I try to keep it a little humble, at least. Now, I don't think we are really good right now by any means, but I think we will be a tough out by seasons end. All I care about is if we improve over the course of the year. To me, that's what makes HS football so enjoyable, and just sports period. Watching the team you love grow and mature together as a unit. I think the Hawks will bounce back and have a pretty good season, I really do. Rebel brought up a good point in his message. Heck, after the Farragut game last year if you asked me I would've told you we were finished, but our kids and staff were resilient and proved me wrong big time. Now is the time for those HVA kids to show how much determination they have and to prove their own naysayers wrong. I wish them the best, and like RTR, I hope they prove me right. I like seeing all teams succeed. Well, besides Farragut & Clinton of course. Only kidding.

    Is HVA offense that bad, or did our D just make it look bad? Maybe it was just an off night, or maybe a bit of all of those things? Guess we will see.

    Well said buddy, thanks.

    Also, 92Dragon, you should probably quit predicting OR games. Freddy Fagan probably has a better record than you do at predicting our games.

    Man, that was ugly, but I will take it. Typical first game. Having 3 Sophomores starting on the line that had never seen any varsity action, as well as another first year starter was tough, but they did pretty good with all of that said. They will only get better. Was really disappointed in HVA OL, being that it was SR laden. Our front, which is made up of a lot of underclassmen whipped them all night. Was not impressed with their SR QB either. Also, where were all of those great athletes @ WR I was hearing about? They were shut down by our secondary, and all but non existent the whole game. That OL should be ashamed of themselves. That was supposed to be a strength of that team, and they got manhandled. It wasn't pretty, but a win is a win. Wished we could've kept the shutout, but getting a lot of those 2nd teamers in will only help us in the long run. That's what has made Maryville so good through the years. When they get a sizable lead they always put in backups and get them quality action, which builds depth, not only for whatever season they're playing, but in the years to come as well.

    Yep, you're right. Such a great player too. Hate it for the kid.

    D has been tremendous just like I thought it would be. Hope 7 is ok. He can't seem to stay healthy. Was hurt most of last year too, poor kid.

    Yeah, I don't understand that reasoning, at all.

    OAK RIDGE WILDCAT FOOTBALL 2018

    Oh yeah, no doubt. I expect our staff to have our guys ready to play. The other part will be up to the kids, and you just never know where 15-17 year old kids' heads are at any given moment lol. He^&, mine is all over the place as a 39 year old, let alone when I was that age. You just never know what to expect with HS kids. I would've thought our kids would've been ready to play against Farragut last year, being they're one of our main rivals, but we laid the biggest egg in history and got shellacked, so you just never know. You're right, though. I expect them to bring it and then some, but I expect us to meet them head on. Now, it remains to be seen if we will, but I expect us to.

    There's really no reason that HVA shouldn't be a top team in this area every year, if not the state in their respective class with the size of that school. They're top notch in most other sports, but for some reason the football team has consistently been underachievers for the most part. It's kind of a gold mine waiting to happen if you ask me. It just hasn't happened, yet.

    I have no idea what to expect Cats. Honestly, I haven't been to any practices this year. I went to the Maryville scrimmage and while we didn't look too impressive, it's hard to get a gauge through a scrimmage. Plus, Maryville tends to make most every team look bad. Honestly, I thought our varsity D held up pretty well against them, even though we gave up 24. But, we made them work for each of those scores, and a few offside penalties kept some drives alive that we may have ended up stalling if we didn't jump offsides. Plus, the O kept them on the field practically all scrimmage, so with all of that said they did well IMO. Also, we didn't give up any really big plays to them, so that was encouraging. They had to work for what they got. I have no idea what to expect Thursday night, but I do expect us to win. Even if our offense won't be fully clicking, which I don't expect it to be, I think our D is good enough to bring us a victory Thursday night. They're going to have to carry us until the O gets going, similar to last year. I think if we can get the O going that we will be a pretty tough team by the time the playoffs roll around. I may end up being wrong, but if we can stay healthy I think we will have one of the better defenses in this area.

    Jefferson drilled Loudon. It was either 38-0 or 30-0. Looks to be that Jefferson has the better team this year in the Ridge among the 2 teams. That seems to go back and forth every 3 years or so. In our heyday both of those teams were really good. It would be nice to get back to that someday. That's when we get some special teams around here.

    Nope. Only Romano and Rowe took snaps at RB. For what it's worth Thompson is the best RB we have IMO, but he's too valuable on D to risk getting hurt.

    Where was Tre Jackson? Thought he was playing this year?
