JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – It was the final tune-up before the regular season schedule begins on Friday, August 19, for the Campbell County Cougars. Coach Justin Price’s 12th edition of Cougar Football hosted Halls on Tuesday evening.

The game comes after scrimmages at Webb and South-Doyle.

Twelfth year head coach Justin Price directs his team.

“We did some things really well against Halls on offense, defense and special teams. We still need to continue to improve in some areas to reach our potential,” said Price.

The “Voice of the Cougars” was on hand for the scrimmage as Les Martin was most impressed with the swarming Cougar defense. “Oh, I loved the way they pursued the ball. Will Lester’s 54-yard touchdown run was quite a thrill,” said Martin.
