A lot of big games on grid schedule

The Way It Is

CORBIN — While preparing the Tri-County composite schedule for the Times-Tribune’s upcoming 2013 Prep Football Preview, I figured it would be a good idea to highlight each week’s biggest game in the Tri-County, according to yours truly.

Plus high school football season is right around the corner, and it will give you something interesting to read while waiting for the season to kick-off next Friday and Saturday.

Week Zero

Whitley County vs. Morristown West, Tenn. — This should be an outstanding match-up for Jim Black’s Whitley County Colonels. Morristown West isn’t a pushover by any means and Whitley County is going to be tested right out of the gate.

Week One

Williamsburg vs. North Laurel — This was a tough one to pick for this week. I was going to go with Whitley County traveling to play Madison Southern, but the Yellow Jackets going up against one of the best teams North Laurel has had in a while makes that game very intriguing.

Week Two

Bell County at Whitley County — No team in the Tri-County plays a tougher schedule than Whitley County. This is an important game for the Colonels because they are at home and you always need to try and get wins on your home turf.

Week Three

Knox Central at Harlan County — This will be one of the biggest match-ups in the mountains in Week Three. The Panthers handed the Black Bears a loss last season, but Tom Larkey’s squad is loaded again this year and it will be a bit tougher for the Panthers this time around with the game being on the road.

Week Four

Bell County at Knox Central — Former Knox Central coach Wayne Mills and his Bell County Bobcats will pay a visit to Knox Central with bragging rights on the line.

Week Five

Whitley County at Knox Central — For the third straight week, Knox Central plays a tough opponent, but the Panthers will be at home when the Colonels pay a visit.

Week Six

Corbin at Wayne County — If the Redhounds want to win its respective district’s top seed, then it must beat the pre-season favorite Cardinals at their place.

Week Seven

Williamsburg at Campbellsville — If the Yellow Jackets are going to win another district championship, a win on the road against Campbellsville is a must.

Week Eight

Corbin at Bell County — This game could be for the district title and if not, the winner of this game will probably be at home for the first round of the playoffs.

Week Nine

South Laurel at North Laurel — Kudos for whoever moved this game towards the end of the season. More than likely, whoever wins this game will solidify their chances of reaching the Class 5A playoffs.

Week 10

Knox Central at Corbin — This doesn’t have any playoff ramifications, but it will be a nice test for both teams before post-season play begins.
