Billy Hall on the move

Scott High took right off were they ended the week before as they rolled past Loudon, 47-13 for another big road win. It was also their sixth win of the season and it secured them a birth in the playoffs.
"We were wanting to take advantage of the momentum that our guys created during the Seymour game last week," Scott High coach Keith Shannon said. "I'm the most proud of the way they came out of the lockerroom in the second half and tightened things up against Loudon's offense."
The Highlanders held Loudon to only 209 total yards of offense, while they racked up 517 total yards themselves.
Billy Hall completed 17 of 29 passes for 276 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran the ball nine times for 151 yards and a touchdown.
JoBen Terry continued to amaze everyone in attendants as he hauled in 178 yards receiving, including two touchdown catches while still wearing a cast on his right hand.
The Highlanders will enjoy a bye week before hosting McMinn Central for Senior Night.
The off-week comes at a good time as the Highlanders need to get some players healthy.
There will be a lot on the line when Scott High hosts McMinn Central on October 28.
"It's Senior Night and it's a very big ball game," Shannon said. "It will be for third place in the district and both teams will play to win. We look forward to the opportunity to get that chance. They're a great football team."
Shannon also had kind words to say about his linebacker unit.
"(Hayden) Byrge, (Trey) Sellers, Eli Hembree, Grainger (Smith) and Austin Chambers have some great athleticism and quickness," he said. "We knew it was going to be a special group and that's what we saw tonight."
