Bobcats claw their way to state championship game

By  | 

Knoxville, Tenn. (WVLT)-- A remarkable run for the central high school continues tomorrow..
coach Bryson Rosser and the Bobcats will play for the class-5a state
football championship---it would be the school's first!

This central team lost it's first two games of the season and have
since reeled off 12 straight wins including knocking off
defending state champ Catholic last week in the state semifinals.
Up next, Henry County from Northwest Tennessee. About the patriots coach Rosser told WVLT Sports, "They are well coached, disciplined, especially on the line of scrimmage they love to run the ball and stop the run. We feel like up front is where both teams strengths are we'll be looking forward to that."

Lineman Jacoby Troutman added, " Yeah, it's really fun because usually they try to run away from us if they run the ball they've got to go through us at some point so I get to make the most of it."

As for this impressive run the Cats are on coach Rosser says, :" it's been unbelievable to watch, the first two games a bunch of mistakes. It's always good to get punched in the mouth early because it does a couple things to you. You either get back up and keep fighting or you take your losses so, it's been really good to see the guys come together start to trust each other enjoy one another, enjoy the coaching staff and the game plan and just have fun."

Again, coach Rosser's Cats will face Henry county at 8pm Saturday for the Class-5A title. Right before that game, it'll be mighty Alcoa going for a 4th straight championship. You'll be able to see both teams beginning at 4pm on our sister station, MyVLT.
