Coffee Middle releases 2023 Football Schedule; will include new conference layout and playoffs

Middle School football is just shy of 3 months away from kickoff of the 2023 season. The new season for Coffee Middle school will be different than any in recent history.

The Raiders and the Central Tennessee Conference (CTC) have picked up new teams for the conference and will split into two divisions – East and West. The top two teams in each division will play in a 4-team playoff to close the season.

Teams in the CTC East will be Coffee County Middle, North Franklin, Tullahoma and Warren County. Teams in the CTC West will be Bridgforth, EO Coffman, Harris and Lewisburg. Bridgeforth is located in Pulaski and EO Coffman in Lawrenceburg.
