|Tonight's prep football schedule|
|Friday, September 21, 2012|
Wilson County’s three Class 1A football teams will be at home tonight as the prep football schedule hits the halfway point. Two of the larger schools, Wilson Central and Lebanon, will be on the road this evening while Mt. Juliet High sits this one out with an idle week.
Monterey at Watertown
Watertown Coach Gavin Webster's Watertown Purple Tigers will host Monterey tonight in a 7 p.m. game at Robinson Stadium. The Purple Tigers are coming off a 45-8 win over Pickett County last week and stands 4-0 overall / 2-0 in Region 4A. Monterey, 3-2 / 2-1 region, are coming off a 42-8 loss to Class 1A titan Gordonsville.
Tonight's winner will have a leg up on the other for postseason consideration. The Wildcats run a modern version of the single wing offense, a plan that is centered around a big, veteran offensive line.
Pickett County at Friendship
As if the Commanders (4-1 overall / 2-1 region) weren’t enough for Pickett County to handle, the Bobcats have been hit by a rash of ailments ranging from concussions to West Nile Virus and will likely dress only 14 players tonight.
King’s Academy at MJ Christian
Wilson Central at Centennial
Lebanon at Cookeville
But as fans of both Lebanon and Cookeville know, anything can happen when these two teams get together. In fact, the last four matchups have been decided by eight points or fewer, as have nine out of the last 13.
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. tonight at Eddie Watson Stadium on the campus of Cookeville High. Live radio coverage begins at 6:30 on WANT FM-98.9. LHS fans can also view a live webcast at www.atwsportscast.com.
First year Cookeville coach Scott Cook has his team at 2-3 overall after last Friday’s 42-13 win over District 6AAA foe Warren County. Lebanon stands 0-5 after last week’s 45-7 loss to Wilson Central.
