The Indians football team kicks off the 2014 season Friday night at 7:00 PM against the DeKalb Tigers in Chilhowee. This year’s squad features a number of seasoned veterans and one unique rookie. Last week, the Indians participated in a ‘jamboree’ in order to sharpen up for the season opener.
Senior QB Cody Grant said the team had things they could improve on, but was confident heading into the season. Veteran leadership and experience is one edge the Indians have this season.
The squad features four seniors from Chilhowee High. Grant is joined by Wyatt Bell, Dustin Wharton and Jordan Lankford. They will anchor the squad with the help of Juniors Daniel Harness, Tyler Grant and Chris Mann. Another Junior, Kimberly Raine, will be the team’s first female member.
The Indians should be competitive this season in the Central Rivers Conference, with home games against Norborne and Hardin-Central. They travel to face Northwest.
The Indians have high hopes for the 2014 season. Join us for our own version of Friday Night Lights at 7.
