Eagle quarterback Landen Hensley breaks free after blocks from Luke Carroll (56) and Robert Kirby (55) in last week’s home win over Kingston-Cherokee. The win advanced Jacksboro to Saturday’s TMSAA Championship game.
JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – My apologies. Due to unforeseen circumstances, WLAF will not be able to broadcast the Jacksboro championship game on Saturday night – Jim Freeman WLAF.
The Jacksboro Eagles return to Dossett Stadium this weekend for a second time this football season. The Eagles annual Egg Bowl battle with La Follette, a JMS win, was played there in September. On Halloween, Jacksboro will play for all the eggs; a TMSAA Championship.
JMS Coach Cody Parker was on the winning side of the TMSAA championship years ago as a player for the Eagles. Saturday night, he looks to coach Jacksboro to the championship.
“I’m just really excited for our kids to have the opportunity to play for a championship,” said JMS Head Coach Cody Parker. Kick-off between Jacksboro and Lake City is 6 pm Saturday night.
