Golden Bear bites -- Mt. Juliet head coach Roger Perry came away from Fridays three-way scrimmage with Franklin and BGA feeling better about his squad. Our defensive number ones looked good, Perry said, especially when you consider we were going against two completely different offensive schemes. It was good for us to see our our young men adjusted on the fly.
Mt. Juliet will not be participating in a jamboree, but picked up a scrimmage with Nashville Hillsboro for Friday night.
Purple Tiger tidbits -- Watertown had a bit of a scare two series into Fridays scrimamge with Jo Byrns. Junior QB Ty Jobe was tackled on a rollout pass and tweaked his ankle.
I think he could have gone back in there, said WHS head coach Gavin Webster, but why take a chance in a scrimmage?
Sophomore Colin Jennings stepped in under center and directed a scoring drive.
FCS notes -- Commander coach John McNeal said his coaching staff, had some questions answered, after Fridays scrimmage with Davidson Academy. Were looking for young guys who want to play and I think we found some.
