Mt. Juliet at Cookeville -- Coach Roger Perrys Golden Bears travel to Putnam County tonight to take on Cookeville High at Jelly Watson Stadium. The Bears, ranked No. 5 in Class 6A, improved to 7-0 overall and 5-0 in District 9AAA with another easy win -- a 45-7 decision at Station Camp. Cookeville is 5-2 after an off week.
Mt. Juliets three-headed running attack of Contrez McCathern, Caleb Hopkins and Jalen Graham are all juniors. McCathern has four 100-yard games this year, Hopkins has three and Graham has one.

Theyre real solid in what they do, and theyre well-coached, Cookeville coach Jerry Joslin said. Theyre ranked fifth, theyre 7-0, and theyve beaten quality teams, so weve gotta be ready to play.
