Crockett beats Boone in Jamboree action

The new Big 7 welcomed football back to the Tri-Cities on Aug. 15 at Science Hill High School’s Kermit Tipton Stadium.
The event ushered in a new school year and new football season for area teenagers.
The Jamboree brought all seven conference teams to Johnson City with Washington County’s two high schools opening their seasons against each other in the fourth quarter.
The single quarter exhibition offered David Crockett High School fans and conference foes alike a small glimpse of new head coach Jeremy Bosken and his brand of football.
Bosken and his Pioneers did not disappoint.
Crockett looked good on both sides of the ball as the defense held the Daniel Boone High School Trailblazers’ offense in check throughout.
The new up-tempo offense put together the only scoring drive of the quarter, giving the Pioneers a 6-0 win over their county rival.
Crockett’s score was set up on a 30-yard pass completion from sophomore quarterback Ryan Burger to Eric Day.
Faced with a fourth and goal at the Boone 2-yard line, Crockett dialed up freshman TK Hill who found pay dirt on a rush around the right edge.
The score gave Crockett the 6-0 victory in Jamboree action and also proved to the rest of the conference that the days of kicking the Pioneers around is about to come to an end.
In other Jamboree action, Tennessee High beat Volunteer 21-7 in the third quarter and Science Hill and Dobyns-Bennett opened jamboree action with a 7-7 tie.
With the loss of Sullivan South in the conference this season, the Hilltoppers played both contests in the first half, winning the second over Sullivan Central 21-0.
The Pioneers will open their regular season at home in a Thursday night game on Aug. 22 against Sullivan East. Boone will open their season on Aug. 23 at Elizabethton.
