“We are not there yet, but we are getting better” said Red Raider football coach Doug Greene on Thursday night. The Coffee County CHS football team welcomed Lincoln County to Carden-Jarrell Field for a 7 on 7 scrimmage. The varsity squads played five, 10 play series on the day.
The Red Raiders were able to move the ball offensively but scored only 1 touchdown. On defense, Coffee County gave up 4 touchdowns but picked off 5 passes. C.J. Anthony, Terreal Clayborne, Marshall Haney, Jamie Norris and Ashton Ferrell all had interceptions for the Raiders. Matthew Pittman threw for the Raiders lone score hitting J.T. Bush on a 25 yard touchdown over the middle.
Coffee County will end the 7 on 7 portion of their summer next week with a pair of road trips to compete in a pair of 7 on 7 tournaments. On Tuesday, the Raiders will visit Walker Valley in a tournament set to begin at 6 PM EDT. On Thursday, they travel to Shelbyville for a tournament beginning at 8:30 AM. Each tournament will give the Raiders 5 games.
