JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Campbell County High School’s Cougar Soccer team was honored during its annual banquet on Monday evening at Idle Stone Farm.
“We didn’t have the best record. Though we really had some teams on the ropes. Oak Ridge and Karns were a couple of those teams,” said Head Coach Bryan Horton.
John Long, a Cougar Junior, was tabbed 1st Team All-District. Long, with CCHS Head Coach Bryan Horton, was 2nd Team All-District as a sophomore.
Cougar Senior Kamdin Ivey was unable to make the banquet.
Players have their share of nicknames. Freshman Ryland Sanders, a transfer from California, is Sunshine. Hayden Ivey’s nickname is Kenny. Diego Rodriguez-Durantez, a foreign exchange student is known as Diego, and his advice from Coach Horton all season was “go, Diego, go.” Luke Carroll is dubbed the strongest man on the Cougar squad, and then there is Preppy Matt.
It was a bittersweet night as coaches Bryan Horton and Steve Ward announced their retirement after devoting more 20 years to soccer in Campbell County. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 05/17/2022-6AM)
