Football season didn’t completely end earlier this month. There is still one more game remaining.
The 2011 Fellowship of Christian Athletes Virginia Versus Tennessee All-Star Senior Football Classic will be held at Kermit Tipton Stadium on Saturday at 1 p.m.
One hundred seniors from Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia will participate in the game, including Science Hill quarterback Justin Snyder, the Johnson City Press Elite 11 player of the year. Also, Science Hill running back Jahmar Adams will play.
Daniel Boone will boast linemen Ryan Iezzi, Austin Willis and Zack Jackson while Jeremy Jenkins will be the head coach.
“Just getting to play another game is a big thing, but also the FCA involvement,” said Jenkins. “It gets coaches together and the kids together and there’s a great camaraderie.”
Once the game starts, it’s still football, said Jenkins. And the Tennessee team wants a repeat of its 48-7 win over Virginia last year.
“Last year we had success and we want to keep that going,” said Jenkins. “We know we will get their best effort.”
David Crockett running back Anthony Campbell and receiver Seth Wright will be in the game. For Elizabethton, quarterback McKenly Berry and linemen Matt Smith and Dustin Phillips are on the roster.
Other local players include Johnson County’s Graig Jennings and Aaron Charsha, Unicoi County’s Josh McKinney and Hunter Goddard, Cloudland’s Colby Gwynn and Caleb Harrison, and Unaka’s Corey Pierce and Jackson Wood.
