WHS vs. Macon Co.
Watertown had a solid showing in a scrimmage at Macon County's Pat Parker Field Friday, Aug. 4.
"We played a pretty good ball game," said WHS head coach Gavin Webster. "There was a lot of effort and energy. On defense, we flew around to the football. If we can play well on defense, that should help our offense out."
The Watertown offense recorded a pair of 80-yard drives and tallied another score on a long run by tailback Deramus Carey.
The sophomore, who moved in from LaVergne, started right, then cut back left, breaking three tackles on the way to at least a 50-yard TD run.
Watertown will participate in the Upperman High jamboree Friday, Aug. 11 in Baxter.
