Although COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on many facets of life, one thing it has done in regards to area high school football teams is force coaches to be creative.
With Metro coaches seemingly getting ready to battle the school system to try and get their kids on the field, their original opponents are having to fill vacancies to get full schedules.
Most teams begin region play this week, but a few notables will not after having to drop their games with Metro Nashville teams this week.
CPA will travel to Milan to meet Bartlett this evening, the first-ever meeting between the two schools. Green Hill’s stadium gets its maiden varsity game on Friday as Gallatin pays a visit to the newest Wilson County program. When Beech and La Vergne agreed to play, the Wolverines were initially going to host, but now it’ll be the first game on the Buccaneers’ new turf surface. Beech has defeated La Vergne in each of their last three meetings, but the most recent of them was before any current player was born – in 1992.
Our staff picks for Week 3 will come later today, as will the announcement of the Citizens Bank Player of the Week for Week 2.
