Raiders return to action Friday; look to even record

After a 1-4 start, things have turned around nicely for the Coffee County Central Red Raider football team.

The Raiders pieced together back to back wins over Spring Hill and Warren County (the latter being a region win) to improve to 3-4, and after a week off to rest and recover from a physical 7 weeks of football, the Raiders have a chance to finish strong.

Coffee County welcomes region opponent Cookeville to town on Friday. A win would make 3 in a row for CHS – something the Raider football program has not done since 2007. A win would also even the Raiders’ record at 4-4 with two games remaining, tie last season’s win total and guarantee CHS a spot in the playoffs.
