Opening Drive (Aug. 21): Getting closer

Believe it or not, there is actually one game in Tennessee being played this evening – Whitwell at East Ridge. That’s because a scheduling snafu left Whitwell with two games in Week 1. They’ll play tonight and Saturday at Bledsoe County. Wild.

Tullahoma’s at Shelbyville on Thursday night in the game closest to Nashville. As for the 615 area, we’re waiting for Friday.

Our Week 1 episode of the 615Preps Podcast is being recorded tonight, with Lebanon head coach Chuck Gentry and Gallatin head coach Chad Watson joining us ahead of their season-opening clash on Friday. Follow us on Twitter @615_Preps, and catch up on news from around the region:
