3 Minute Magic Car Wash the magic sponsor fter last year’s farragutpress How the West Was Won presented by 3Minute Magic Car Wash battle of Westside high school football’s “Big Six,” the bronze Stetson hat trophy had a Spartans green glow. “I guess everybody's chasing Webb right now,” said Wes Jones, Hardin Valley Academy head coach, about Dave Meske’s Webb School Spartans winning the inaugural 3-Minute Magic Car Wash HWWW title — en route to the TSSAA Division II-A state title — with a 9-1 regular season record. Rusty Bradley's Christian Academy of Knoxville Warriors — also competing for regular season top honors with Farragut, Bearden and Knoxville Catholic — actually tied Webb at 9-1 but barely lost in a total points scored tiebreaker. Jim Rooney, 3-Minute Magic Car Wash owner, said he is anxious to sponsor HWWW because “local high school football is very important to our community, and we have a lot of local high school kids who support our car wash. “We want to do everything we can to be supportive of the local schools,” he added. “Last year was a fantastic experience for us being part of the How the West Was Won program. We were honored to have presented the trophy to the champions. “It was exciting to watch the race as it concluded, and we just want to be part of that again this year.” Bradley said 3-Minute Magic Car Wash’s HWWW sponsorship is “very, very kind and generous. For that to be sponsored by someone takes time and effort

on their part. “Players from every team in this area put in a lot of time and a lot of hours, and it's nice to see that rewarded,” he added. Meske said such recognition “is fun for the kids. It brings some excitement to West Knoxville football. “When kids have an opportunity to be publicized or be honored, it's special for them,” he added. “It's creating memories, and I think that's important.” Eddie Courtney, Farragut head coach, said his program “has always felt like that just being recognized in the battle of the West has been very important to us, and even so now that we've added the other teams in this for the trophy. “Especially because, if you look at the quality of the programs this involves,” Courtney added. “Webb winning the state championship, and us and Bearden competing every year for region championships and getting into the playoffs. Catholic, CAK the same thing. “It speaks highly; if you win that, you've won over good programs. All of us are good programs. Hardin Valley's starting to come on now that they've established their program.” For the team that claims 2010's Stetson hat bronze trophy, “It will certainly be a special award for them,” Courtney said.

Savvy and Speedy earden possesses many of the key ingredients that comprise a winning football team. A savvy returning quarterback? Check. A speedy tailback who excels at making guys miss? Check. A pair of big, athletic head-knocking linebackers? Check. Up front, however, questions plague the Bulldogs. Bearden heads into the 2010 campaign having to replace all but one starter on the offensive line and its entire interior defensive front. Uncertainty plagues both lines of scrimmage as kickoff for the season opener looms, but Bearden coach Brad Taylor knows precisely what he can expect from his four team captains—all returning starters. Kyle Riemer is back for his second season at quarterback after throwing for more than 1,200 yards last season. “Pound for pound, I don’t think there’s a better quarterback around,” Taylor said of the 5-foot-9 senior. “He’s got a big arm for his size and he can move and run well.” It certainly helps to have an explosive tailback like Devrin Young waiting for the handoff. A 5-7 senior, Young has run for more than 2,800 yards and 36 touchdowns in the past two years. Young also will help out in the secondary at times. “Devrin has that speed that everybody likes and is looking for,” Taylor said. “It’s hard to coach speed. It’s just something either you got it or you don’t and he’s been blessed with a lot of it.” On defense, Drew Williamson and Peyton Landers are the big guns. Landers (6-1, 181) led the Bulldogs in tackles last season and also contributed 375 rushing yards while catching 15 balls for 200-plus yards receiving. Williamson (6-2, 205), an inside linebacker, created havoc in opposing backfields throughout the 2009

Have A Great Season!

AK has the luxury of bringing back the Region 2-AA Offensive MVP in quarterback Quinn Epperly. That’s not the only benefit of having a returning starter at quarterback, especially when dealing with the Warriors. Coach Rusty Bradley runs what he calls a “Spread Coast” offense—a West Coast attack run from a spread formation that places some tremendous mental and schematic responsibilities on whomever the signal caller is. “It’s nice having a returning starter at that position, just because you’re not having to start at ground zero,” Bradley said of Epperly, who threw for a whopping 2,604 yards last season with 23 touchdowns. “He has an unbelievable foundation. Plus he’s very smart anyway. He really has just grown in the mental aspect of the game. “There’s a lot of film study, there’s a lot of meeting time with me,” Bradley added regarding the burden a QB faces in the “Spread Coast” scheme. “There’s a lot our quarterback has to do every snap—not only when the ball is snapped but every play. Getting the protection set, identifying the front, any adjustments. Then when the ball’s snapped you have four seconds to see what the defense has to do and adjust accordingly. It’s a lot to ask.” Beating Alcoa is a tall task to ask of any team these days—and the Tornadoes sent CAK packing from the playoffs in a 31-10 loss last season. Alcoa went on to claim another state championship, and looks to be a powerhouse yet again after thrashing Farragut—a 6A school—in a scrimmage. For Bradley, success still comes down to working hard and staying healthy. “The biggest thing is the work ethic of our kids. They work unbelievably hard just to maximize their Godgiven ability,” the coach observed. “When you get 57 guys, along with our coaching staff, who live out that philosophy and live out that belief, then you can do good things. “We may not be overly talented at every position but what we have is absolutely maximized at every position.” Epperly, who’s been offered a scholarship at Princeton, obviously possesses ability. But he’s not the only guy on the team who’s a potential standout. Tailback Carson Pegram, the Warriors’ top rusher last season, returns for another season. Zach Mead and Davis Howell, the team’s second- and third-leading receivers, also come back. CAK also boasts three returnees along the offensive line: center Steven Fortner and guards Mike Alford and Zach Sharp. Sharp has two years’ experience as a starter. The 4-4 defense is strong up the middle. Both tackles— Fortner and Clay Powers return. So do the two inside linebackers, leading tackler Tyler Eichholtz and Jacob Duncan. Colby Maddux is back at outside linebacker, and should be book-ended by Zach Scott.

FARRAGUTADMIRALS

ONE OF THE BEST ollowing the shuffle that took place with last season’s reclassification by the TSSAA, District 4 is arguably the toughest Class AAA league in the state. Farragut faces perennial state powers like Maryville and Catholic on an annual basis. “Without a doubt,” Admirals coach Eddie Courtney said when asked about the formidable competition he faces in the district. “Put Maryville in there, Catholic; Two years ago both those teams came off state championships. Us and Bearden made strides in getting better. “It is very tough.” The Admirals take it one step farther with a brutal non-conference schedule, which includes Dobyns-Bennett, Oak Ridge and Riverdale this season. “If you’re going to be one of the best, you’ve got to play the best and we do the same thing when we scrimmage people,” Farragut coach Eddie Courtney said. Thus, the new starters in Farragut’s lineup will be thrown right into the fire thanks to the rigorous schedule. At least the Admirals have enough team depth to minimize the number of kids who will be playing both ways—especially on the line. Farragut figures to go eightdeep on the offensive front, and none of those eight are needed on the defensive line as the 2010 season opens. Bobby Fricks, a 5-foot-11, 230pound senior, is the incumbent center. Sophomore Patrick Doucette (60, 270) logged some starts as a freshman. Daniel Knipp (6-0, 270), Miguel Aranada (5-11, 230), Clint Callahan and Justin Mallory are among the other candidates for playing time in the trenches. If the big guys up front can Robbie be consistent, Farragut’s skill Leonard, 58 personnel are talented enough to make some big plays. Montre Hudson is the top returning rusher, tallying 281 yards and three touchdowns in 2009. Jacob Johnson also got his share of carries, and the multifaceted Taino Perez is a threat as a back, receiver or kick returner. They’re joined by Jordan Freeman, a

transfer. All four will get a chance to carry the ball, especially early in the season when it’s still so hot and humid. Cody Rule actually was the Admirals’ third-leading rusher last season, with 28 carries for 160 yards. He takes over at quarterback in Farragut’s spread option, replacing Reese Browning. “He has done a remarkable job of trying to understand our offense, do the right things,” Courtney said. Rule is a dual-threat QB, and while he doesn’t have the live arm that Browning possessed, the junior has been solid on short and intermediate routes while continuing to improve his ability to throw the deep ball. Courtney expects to substitute liberally on defense, where the Admirals are sticking with their 3-3 stack scheme. Don’t be surprised if

backer spots. Jacob Johnson returns at free safety, and is the team’s top returning tackler with 48 total stops. Brooks Harper enters his

third year as a starting linebacker and anchors that group; he made 36 stops with two tackles for loss and a fumble recovery though he had to sit out a couple of games. Fellow senior Robbie Leonard also returns at linebacker. Farragut made a couple of position moves to give the defense more speed. Thomas Jackson, last year’s starting middle linebacker, now plays defensive end. Harper has replaced Jackson as the man in the middle at linebacker. Freeman will get time at end as well. Madison Brown is listed as an end but he’ll also play some linebacker depending on the situation. Perez returns to man the Admirals’ left cornerback spot. The Final Verdict: Farragut went 82 last season and still had to settle for the fifth seed in the East side of the 6A playoff bracket. With Maryville, Catholic, Bearden and the three tough non-conference foes lying in wait, the Admirals will be challenged to match that record—much less improve upon it. By John Moorehouse

campaign, registering seven sacks and 19 tackles for loss as Bearden went 8-2 and qualified for the 6A playoffs. It’s that front line, however, that provides cause for concern. Austin Sackett (5-8, 215) started at offensive guard last season. He’s the lone incumbent in the trenches for Bearden on that side of the ball. Junior Dayton Reynolds (6-1, 246) is the tentative starter at center. Harry Patty (6-1, 257) played some on both lines in 2009 and will be expected to take a big step forward in 2010. “He’s a big old kid,” Taylor said. “For him, it’s just making sure he’s in the proper condition where he can play for 48 minutes.” Taylor figures a few guys will have to play both ways on the line, but he’ll try to minimize those situations. He anticipates that the Bulldogs will handle the void at defensive tackle in their 4-4 scheme by committee. At least there’s more stability at the back end of the defense. Returning starter Stefon Stephens joins Young in the secondary. Offensively, Bearden will stick with its two-back scheme. Though Reamer will remain in the shotgun 99 percent of the time, the run game is influenced by classic I-formation principles and is augmented by a passing game fashioned after the West Coast style. Bearden also will run some Pistol—with the QB a bit closer to the line of scrimmage and the tailback behind him. “The key for us is how our D-line and our O-line play,” Taylor summarized. “We’ve got some big bodies. We’ve got some guys who can do it. They have to show that they can do it.” The Final Verdict: Young is among the elite skill-position players in the Knoxville area this season. With all the other returning talent, Bearden has plenty of cause to be hopeful. If the line comes together, the Bulldogs could have quite the season. But Bearden still has a very tough road to the playoffs. Remember that last year, Bearden went 8-2 and still settled for a No. 8 seed. By John Moorehouse

There are a few questions that exist in the defensive line as well as the secondary. For Bradley, it all goes back to having the proper mind-set and being ready to play from the opening kickoff of every single game. “Doing what we’ve done in the past kind of put a bull’s eye on our chest,” he said. “People are going to come ready to play and we have to be mentally focused and mentally ready to play every week. Every week with the schedule we have, it’s going to be a tough challenge.” The Final Verdict: Can anyone beat Alcoa? Right now that looks like the burning question statewide in Tennessee high-school football. With so much returning talent on the offensive side of the ball, a group Steven Fortner, 67 headlined by Epperly, CAK might never have a better chance to upset the Tornadoes in its pursuit of state glory.

Brad Taylor, Bearden head coach, said 3-Minute HWWW “is great anytime guys get to compete. Guys take a lot of pride in their West Knoxville schools.” Scott Meadows, Catholic head coach, said such a Westside battle “is a great idea. I think there's some bragging rights for West Knoxville. I think it's something for the players to be playing for.” Jones said the 3-Minute HWWW competition “is awesome, especially with the great football teams that are out west. It's only going to make people get better and continue to work hard just trying to keep up with the guys that are on top.” “It's pretty thick right underneath,” Jones added. “You've got some young guys like us doing everything they can do to try and get up that ladder and be in the middle of that mix.” Bradley added, “Anytime you can be crowned the winner of some type of trophy or be recognized for excellence on the field, that’s always a positive.” By Alan Sloan

HARDINVALLEYHAWKS

BUILDING FUTURE ardin Valley Academy got thrown right into the fire in 2009. Will the rigorous on-the-job training that took place last season pay off for the school’s fledgling football program in 2010? After surviving its inaugural season of varsity football, the Hawks bring back nearly everyone from a team that took plenty of lumps during the 2009 campaign. “Last season, they were just trying to figure out what Friday nights are all about,” coach Wes Jones said. “I think our team’s going to be much more prepared.” Hardin Valley lost just seven players of significance from the 2009 squad. “We’re returning basically 20 starters,” the coach noted. Three of those incumbent starters will factor prominently in whether or not this neophyte program can take a step forward in its second season of existence. The best of the bunch is probably Zach Clevenger, an all-region selection last season. Clevenger is one of the top players in the Knoxville area, and a proven force who can disrupt the bestlaid plans of opposing offenses. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound senior racked up 121 total tackles in

H

2009 with 13 sacks and 27 tackles for loss. He’s one of the anchors of the Hawks’ 4-4 defense. Clevenger also is a standout at receiver, averaging 16.7 yards per catch last season. He’s put in plenty of hours in the weight room preparing his body for the coming campaign. The quarterback, Jake Bishop, also returns after throwing for almost 1,000 yards in 2009 to run the Hawks’ offense. Jones runs a multiple scheme that’s based out of an I-formation, but Hardin Valley might shake things up a bit this season. Putting guys in motion is a possibility. The Hawks even could run some of the spread from time to time. Jones says this 5-10, 185-pound senior is football smart, and joins Clevenger as one of the key team leaders. Junior tailback Dorian Eskridge will provide the team’s big-play element. Eskridge fought some nagging injuries last season, but still rolled up 346 yards on 73 carries. The 5-8, 175-pound Eskridge isn’t the biggest guy on the football field, but he’s a shifty runner. They’ll be trying to help Hardin Valley scratch out some respectability. After beating Carter 7-0 in its first-ever varsity game, the Hawks’ inaugural season promptly went into the tank. Hardin Valley lost its next nine games, scoring 15 or less points in eight of those contests and seven or less on four occasions. Six times, Hardin Valley got beat by at least 21 points. “I don’t think we had any false hopes,” Jones said regarding last year’s performance. See HARDIN VALLEY on Page 22C

CATHOLICFIGHTINGIRISH

One unique team Mike Wegzyn, 11

very football team has to make lineup adjustments over the course of a season. Catholic got some early, unwanted practice when top returning rusher Cody Shirley blew out his knee in a scrimmage against Beech. Taylor Kennedy replaced Shirley in the scrimmage, and the 5-foot-10, 160-pound senior will remain the primary ball carrier for the Fighting Irish as the 2010 season begins. “It’s hard to replace Cody,” Catholic coach Scott Meadows admitted. “I’ve talked with him, and he’s going to have to be a vocal leader in the locker room. Plus, he’s going to be another set of eyes for the running backs, whenever they’re coming off the sideline.” Sophomore Nolan Coulter (5-11, 165) is taking second-string tailback reps in Catholic’s spread offense with Shirley now sidelined. Catholic is unique to many Knoxville teams, as a lineman is the premier star on the roster while the guys playing the traditionally glamorous skill positions are unknown quantities. The star in this case is Kyler Kerbyson (6-4, 285), who made a verbal commitment to Tennessee just a couple of days before Catholic participated in the jamboree at Neyland Stadium. Kerbyson plays offensive tackle and defensive line for the Fighting Irish. In less than a year, he went from being a relatively unknown starter for Catholic to become one of the most-coveted line prospects in the Southeast. “That’s a tribute to him. He’s worked incredibly hard,” Meadows said. “Once the film got out on Kyler, colleges just clamored for him.” Meadows spoke with Kerbyson on Aug. 13, the same day as the big scrimmage, and noticed an immediate change in the demeanor of his star lineman. “We met for about 20 minutes and he seemed a lot more relaxed than he has the last few months,” the coach observed. Meadows seems more at ease regarding his situation at quarterback than one might expect given a new starter is slated to take the helm at that pivotal position. Mike Wegzyn moved to East Tennessee from Northville, Mich., in January. The 6-5, 210-pound senior finished out the basketball season for Catholic, then took the field for the Fighting Irish’s spring practice session and staked his claim for the starting QB duty. “Whenever we started going through drills, he was always first in line, encouraging people and pushing people from day one,” Meadows said. “I was very happy about that, very pleasantly surprised. “He’s got a tremendous arm. I think he’s the total package, I really do,” Meadows added regarding his new

WEBBSPARTANS

Caleb Blance, 20

Talented and fortunate t’s not very common, at either the high-school or college level, for a program to have a four-year starting quarterback. Dave Meske, the head coach at Webb, has been fortunate enough to have multiple quarterbacks talented and fortunate enough to enjoy such long tenures. Parker Wormsley will become the third when the 2010 season begins. Wormsley, who’s committed to play baseball at The University of Tennessee, returns for his final hitch on the Webb gridiron after throwing for 1,000-plus yards as a junior and leading the Spartans to the Division II, Class A state championship. “He started as an eighth grader at shortstop, he rotated in as a starter at basketball as a freshman and he was starting quarterback as a freshman,” Meske said of the 6-foot, 165-pound senior. “That tells you he’s a great athlete. “He’s got a little bit of a swagger, which I think helps him with his success. He’s confident, but he’s not overconfident. He’s not cocky, but at the same time, he believes that he can do the job.” Wormsley certainly is the alpha of this Spartans squad. “He’s going to push everything forward. He’s going to push me,” Meske said. “He’s that type of guy that’s going to come up to me and say, ‘Coach, what are we doing here? Can we do this?’ He has that kind of confidence in his ability to be a great quarterback.” Wormsley will be surrounded by plenty of familiar faces in the Webb backfield. It can be crowded back there at times, thanks to the wing-T scheme that the Spartans run. Webb brings back its top three rushers from last season: Caleb Blance, Aaron Blance and Bryan Berube. “They’re all about 5-foot-6, but they can all fly. And they can all score,” Meske noted. “The best part of the wing-T is, all three of them are going to get the football. You could have three running backs rush for over 1,000 yards.” If that happens, chances are good that the Spartans will enjoy yet another successful season. It just won’t make the schedule any easier. As a private school, Webb plays against some far-flung teams, when compared to the schedule of many public-school teams in the Knoxville area. Road trips to Davidson Christian Academy and Mount Juliet Christian Academy are among the contests

TENNESSEEVOLS

Patience is the key

Cory Eichholtz, 82

f the schedule maker for the 2010 University of Tennessee football team had a sense of humor, it had to be warped. The second game features PAC-10 favorite Oregon, which has even more passing plays than gaudy neon lime uniforms. You also get to tackle all three past national champions: Florida, LSU and Alabama. Just getting a win in October might be a step in the right direction. UT plays at LSU and Georgia before Alabama visits Neyland Stadium. The month concludes at South Carolina on Halloween Weekend. Remember the black jerseys? South Carolina feels like it owes UT a black eye. Two things appear to be sure bets: UT football has become a work in progress and this Tennessee team is going to have to grow up in a hurry. Patience is the key word ... and it may be for a couple of years. Take a look at the check list: New head coach Derek Dooley was 17-20 at his previous stop, Louisiana Tech. One media report said he was just 1-15 against teams with winning records. At least he has shed the athletic director's role to concentrate on the formidable task as UT's third head coach in as many years. The offensive line does not have a player that started an SEC game. While there is talent and the chance to have the best young line in America, there's virtually no experience. If you look at the entire depth chart, the center position has to be the No. 1 concern. It's no wonder that Dooley has mentioned open tryouts among the student body. Make no mistake: He isn't kidding if there's a pre-med major that can block a Bama nose guard on fourth and 2. UT's top two quarterbacks – juco transfer Matt Simms or true freshman Tyler Bray – have not taken a snap in a major college game. It takes time to adjust to the speed of the game, progression of reads and schemes designed to confuse or bait young quarterbacks. The top returning tailback – David Oku – rushed for 94 yards last season. He finished slightly ahead of the best returning tailback, Tauren Poole, whose lack of playing remains a mystery. The most experienced players are tight end Luke Stocker, receivers Gerald Jones and Denarius Moore and fullback Kevin Cooper.

UT From page 19C

"They're a little green on the offensive side of that ball -- that's for sure," said eternal optimist Bobby Scott, the former UT quarterback who appears on the Enrichment Sports Source on WATE on Sunday mornings at 11. "They're definitely a little green." The Boston Celtics may have less green. The defense isn't exactly an elder statesman. Although middle linebacker Nick Reveiz is a team leader, daily source of inspiration and senior captain, the former walk-on from Farragut is trying to overcome a non-contact knee injury that ended his 2009 season midway through the fourth game. "I am so thankful that I was able to get back out there for the last two weeks of spring practice," Reveiz said. "I was trying to tackle Tauren Poole and he can cut as sharply as anybody. I fell to the ground, but I got up and everything was OK. It was like, `I can plant .. I can go.' I was so thankful."

quarterback. “He’s got the ‘it’ factor.” Wegzyn is more of a classic pro-style quarterback, but can run if necessary. Joey Gaston is also an incumbent on the offensive line. Patrick Haun should be Catholic’s top receiver and Meadows expects him to have a big year. Kerbyson and Gaston are two of only four players who are beginning the 2010 season as two-way starters. The others are Alex Saah and Michael Bonfini. Dominic DiGiovanni should be the keystone of Catholic’s linebacking corps in the 4-4 defense run by the Fighting Irish. Don’t overlook Catholic’s kicking game, either. Spencer Roth is rated as one of the top punters available in the country. Kansas already has offered him a scholarship, and schools like Florida and USC also have shown interest. The Final Verdict: Assuming Kennedy and Coulter can help fill the void left after Shirley’s injury, and Wegzyn lives up to his coach’s lofty expectations, the Fighting Irish should be in store for a bounce-back season. Catholic went 6-6 in 2009, an uncharacteristic performance for a team that moved up in classification last year after winning a state title the prior season.

“It’s a tough task going out and playing good teams. A lot of state champions come through here.” That said, Jones is looking for more focus out of his team from the opening kickoff. Too many times, the coach noted, the Hawks would fall behind by a considerable amount in the first quarter. “We can’t decide to start playing until the second quarter,” he said. Meanwhile, the challenge to build depth continues—not just for this season, but for the coming years. Hardin Valley does have a youth football league, established two years ago, as a feeder system. In time, that will start bearing fruit. The Final Verdict: The plethora of players who received substantial experience last season should be older, wiser and stronger in 2010. Still, as a program in only its second year of existence, Hardin Valley will have a tough time competing against some of the strong teams they’ll face in conference play. It’s too soon to expect the Hawks to be a significant force in the dog-eat-dog world of Knoxville football.

on the 2010 docket. “We’ve created some rivalries there. Do I enjoy traveling all the time? No. But it’s something that when you’re in Division II and in Knoxville, you’re going to have to do,” Meske said. Jay Warner, the incumbent center, returns as the anchor of the Spartans’ offensive line. Tyler Harrison started at guard last year but got hurt in the spring and won’t be available until the second or third game of the new season.

Meanwhile, Meske figures he’ll rotate Brewer Congleton, Jackson Greaves, Hunter Little and Chance Harrison at the two guard spots. Dakota Jenkins and Patrick Daley, a pair of 16-year-old seniors, will be the offensive tackles. There are more questions on the defensive side of the ball. The secondary will be comprised of two freshmen and two sophomores, and all three starting linebackers— Congleton, Jim Dolinack and Harrison – will be new to the first-team lineup. Caleb Blance also could play at linebacker, if needed. Watch out for senior Kelly Thomas, a defensive end who Meske dubs the most improved player on the team. The Final Verdict: Webb’s junior varsity team went undefeated last season, which should provide the Spartans with some solid depth this season in spite of the holes on defense and the offensive line. With the wealth of returning talent at the skill positions, Webb once again has its sights set squarely on competing for a state championship. By John Moorehouse
