KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Alcoa High School made state history Friday, winning its eighth football championship in a row.

It’s the 21st overall championship win for the Tornadoes and the first for long time defensive coordinator and first year Head Coach Brian Nix. Alcoa ends the year 14-1 after beating East Nashville 45-26.

With the win, Alcoa breaks its own state record for consecutive titles, which they set between 2004-2010. It was truly a team effort Friday in Chattanooga, but two players especially stood out. On offense, Luke Cannon caught three touchdown passes, while on defense, Joe McCord caused problems all afternoon for the Eagles with multiple tackles and two big quarterback sacks late in the game!
