Alcoa preparing for 3A state championship

Alcoa will be playing for their fourth straight 3A championship in Cookeville on Saturday in a game that you can watch on MyVLT at 4:00pm EST.

They face a familiar opponent in the Covington Chargers from West Tennessee, Alcoa beat them 31-20 last year in the title match.

Head coach Gary Rankin says the matchup should make for a great game as both squads are loaded with senior leadership, "We're playing the same team back to back we've done that a couple times too, we know its gonna be a tough ball game, we know a little bit about them and they know a little bit about us. They've got a lot of kids back and so do we, so it should be a good one."
