New middle school football league fires up in Knox County

By  | 

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Knox County is one of a few counties in Tennessee without an established middle school football league, based on high school affiliation -- that is, until now.

The Middle School Athletic Conference (MAC) includes eight teams for middle school aged players.

The league's "jamboree" was on Saturday, and featured scrimmages between different teams in the league.

Week one of the season is designed to pit rival schools against one another, such as Halls and Gibbs.
