It was scheduled to be senior night. Koger said the team will work something out for a later date to celebrate seniors.

The cancellation is just one of many cancellations across the state this season because of COVID-19 related issues. Just in Coffee County’s region alone, Blackman High School had to miss two games and Rockvale shut its season down two weeks early.

Coffee County finishes the season with a 4-5 record and did not qualify for the TSSAA football playoffs.
