Boyd Buchanan

When assessing his team's performance Thursday after it won the District 5-A high school volleyball championship, Boyd-Buchanan coach Alfie Dodd said: "They didn't let mistakes get to them."

Storyline: The Red Raiders rake their show to Murfreesboro after a tough rivalry loss to McCallie. Baylor's offense never got going last week, and its defensive front will be tested this week against an Oakland offensive line that includes University of Tennessee commitments Kyle Oliver at TE and Jack Jones at OT.

Front-runner: McCallie (7-0, 3-0). The Blue Tornado have beat two previously unbeaten East/Middle region teams in Ensworth and Baylor.

Signal Mountain running back Skye Wilson is through for the year after learning Monday that he has a torn ACL, a torn MCL and torn meniscus in his left knee.

Earlier this football season a Soddy-Daisy player was injured seriously enough that the school's athletic trainers and the first responders did not want to move him.

The Boyd-Buchanan girls' soccer team will have two more chances this regular season to get their first nondistrict win. But in District 5-A/AA they're unblemished.

Storyline: The Panthers have struggled offensively and without defensive help might be winless going into the District 6-AA game.

Scottsboro running back DeKarlos Billingsley set the school single-game rushing record with 333 yards in the team’s loss to North Jackson last week.

In recent years, college football Saturdays across the country have been christened by alliteration to try to magnify the meaning.

Sammy Seamster, who parlayed two years of high school football into a college career at Middle Tennessee State University and the start of a career in the National Football League, will have his high school jersey number retired in a ceremony Thursday afternoon at Ooltewah High.

It's big-game week with a number of rivalries sprinkled in for additional flavor, and the average fan, those with loyalty to no particular school, will have his choice of good games to attend.

Boyd-Buchanan may not be the best 0-5 football team in the TSSAA -- Siegel probably owns that distinction -- but the Buccaneers have faced three schools larger than theirs and tonight take on their second Division II-A opponent, and an undefeated one at that.

Any questions concerning whether Boyd-Buchanan would be ready for the rematch of its only District 5-A loss in high school volleyball season were answered after the first point Thursday.
