The high school football season kicked off Thursday night with a fun game between defending Class-4A champion Greeneville and Powell at the home of the Panthers. Matt Lowe's team took a second half lead and had to fend off a late Greene Devils drive to win it 19-17. The victory snaps a 30 game win streak by Greeneville.

The much anticipated start of the high school football season is this week and a total of 180 games will be played during Week 1.

Five games feature region matchups:

Knoxville Halls at Gibbs

Maryville at William Blount

Middleton at Collinwood

Centennial at Ravenwood

Manassas at Fairley

One rarity in the schedule this week involves Whitwell, which plays their first two games of the season on the road within the same week. They played at East Ridge on Wednesday and will travel to face Bledsoe County on Saturday.

Twelve teams this week will face opponents that are not members of TSSAA.
