Trousdale County will jump back into Region 4-2A action this week as the Yellow Jackets will make a short trip up the road to Westmoreland.

The Eagles, coming off their bye week, will bring a 2-1 record into this week’s matchup. Westmoreland has wins over Ezell-Harding (50-6) and Jackson County (33-0) and a 10-7 loss to Macon County.

“Westmoreland is another very tough opponent and we have to go to their place to play,” said Trousdale coach Brad Waggoner. “It’s a region game, which adds to the importance of this game. They are tough and physical and are also 1-0 in the region.

“We have got to have another great week of preparation to be ready to face them Friday night. We look forward to another great opportunity to play another very tough team.”

The will the 22nd meeting in the series, with the Jackets leading 11-10. In 1931, Phil Dickens scored a state-record 96 points for Trousdale County in a 126-0 win. Dickens had 13 touchdowns and 18 extra points.

The teams renewed their rivalry in 2015, when the Jackets started their season with a 13-7 win in Westmoreland.

Last season, the Jackets shut out Coach Steve Harris’ Eagles 21-0 on the Creekbank. Keyvont Baines started that game with an 85-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
