Your Sequatchie County Indians host the South Pittsburg Pirates Friday night (Indians Stadium, Kickoff 7:00PM) in a non-region game. It is the season opener for both teams.
The Pirates (Region 3-1A) went (13-1) in 2017 losing to the eventual State Champion Greenback in the Semifinals. Last season the Indians gave the Pirates all they could handle losing by the score of (28-21). If the Indians had a few more minutes on the clock they probably would have been able to send the game to overtime.
Friday night will mark the first game in Indians Stadium for new Head Coach Mark Wattenbarger and his coaching staff. Coach Watt who came to Dunlap from Crossville and Stone Memorial HS. He had been the Panthers HC since the school opened in 2009.
SMHS is a 4A school (that includes two seasons at the 5A level in 2013 & 2014) and led the Panthers to a 50-49 overall record. Recently however Stone Memorial has reached the Playoffs every season since 2013 and a (37-19) record in the last 5 seasons. That includes two back to back undefeated (10-0) seasons in 2015 (11-1) & 2016 (10-1).
