1998 Milan won 2A gold ball....1999 Milan won 3A gold....only team in TSSAA history to win a gold one year and move up a class and win it again....more than 1 source said 1999 Milan was the best team of all classifications that played that weekend.....

Trousdale County won 1A in 2008 and 2A in 2009, but the 1997 and 1998 Trousdale County teams are imo one of if not the greatest small school football team ever, I have always heard a quote around here that Phillip Fulmer was quoted as saying "We would rather be playing Auburn instead of Trousdale County" that team had 2 guys that had SEC offers but both decided that wasn't for them. Michael Scruggs back to back mr football lineman would have played in the NFL but he now drives a truck for a living.

The 1986 Austin-East Roadrunners. One of the greatest teams to come out of Knoxville!

  • Led by Mr. Football winner & Parade All-American, Leroy Thompson
  • Had 2 1000+ yd rushers in Thompson & Joey Smith 
  • The defense was also dominant and had several shut-outs
  • Went undefeated (15-0) & played in a conference that included Knoxville Rule, Alcoa, & Maryville among others. We beat Maryville twice that year!
  • Beat Brentwood Academy in the Clinic Bowl to win the 2A State Championship
  • Several players from that team went on to play college ball. Most notably Leroy Thompson at Penn State & Joey Smith at Louisville
  • Thompson & Smith went on to play in the NFL.
    • Thompson with the Steelers, Patriots, Chiefs, & Buccaneers
    • Smith with the Giants

I remember that team too well.

I would have to disagree, respectfully of course.  while those three teams may have beaten Maryville, I still believe this 05 team was probably the best Alcoa team assembled.  The talent was through the roof (11 guys with division 1 offers, 3 top 50 recruits nationally ), just had a few missteps vs maryville, plus maryville played a great game, and executed a great game plan, starting with an on sidekick after scoring on the first possession of the game. I would also say that the maryville team in 05 is better than maryville teams of 09,10,and 18.  That maryville team was loaded as well, Brent burnette, tyler maples, gary tucker, curtis tate, aaron douglas, tank baker,(All Division 1 offers) Stephen Shiver, Dwight Wood, Landon Hall, etc...Once this team (05 Alcoa) got their act together they were tough, beating fulton 40-8.  I believe the 05 team would beat any alcoa team put together. just my personal opinion.

Trousdale County 97 and 98 (Back to Back State Champs)

Got by the Pirates in 1998 semis but not the 1999 semis.  That said, I would have to say the 1969 Pirates were one of the best Class A teams in history and it was in the A, AA, AAA era and a time when 9 - 1 teams didn't make the playoffs.

I would like to put a word in for the 1991 Oak Ridge AAA State Championship team: 14 wins 1 loss (to Paducah Tighlman a Kentucky team, 21-20). A power team with a big offensive line, great running back, Shawn Summers that could pass as well, won the title with a 30-0 win over a good Gallatin team but best remember was a classic semifinal game win 42-41 in overtime over a very good Knox Central team led by Todd Helton, probably the greatest high school game played in this area.

Union city 2013 and 2014 should be on here as both of them teams were undefeated and whiled everything in their path by a pretty good margin. I remember keeping with that team and they only gave up 42 points in 2013 and in 2014 they only gave like 28 the whole year.
