The Trousdale County Yellow Jackets will have their final scrimmage of the preseason when they play the Gallatin Green Wave on Friday in the 30th annual Tobacco Bowl Jamboree at 8:30 p.m. on the Creekbank.

“We look forward to getting back to work and having one more scrimmage to work on things we need to work on before we start the real thing in another week,” said coach Brad Waggoner. “It’s been a good summer, but it’s about that time to get the season started.”

The jamboree will get under way at 5:30 p.m. Friday when Red Boiling Springs takes on Station Camp’s freshman squad.

At 6:30 p.m., the Clay County Bulldogs will go up against Gallatin’s freshmen. At 7:30 p.m., the Smith County Owls will take on Station Camp’s varsity.

Admission to the jamboree is $5.

Scrimmages: Trousdale County had two scrimmages last week against Portland and BGA.

The Yellow Jackets pretty much had their way at Portland on July 30 but lost 24-12 at home to BGA on Friday.

“They were good scrimmages that allowed us to work on ourselves,” Waggoner said. “We saw some good things and some things we have to work on, which is typical for scrimmages.”

JSMS to start season: The Jim Satterfield Jr. Jackets will kick off their 2018 football schedule with a trip to Stone Memorial in Crossville on Thursday for a 6:30 p.m. start.

The Jr. Jackets are being coached by Matt Dyer and Hayden Williams.
