Friday Frenzy Week 1 football preview

Sports

The high school football season has arrived in Tennessee. Between 342 teams in the state, 1,767 games have been scheduled for the 2019 regular season. Week 1 will feature 180 games across Tennessee, featuring several area rivalry showdowns. The Greater Knoxville area will also have two region matchups in the first week of action (Halls at Gibbs, Maryville at William Blount).

One rarity in the schedule this week involves Whitwell, which plays their first two games of the season on the road within the same week. They played at East Ridge on Wednesday and will travel to face Bledsoe County on Saturday.

WATE 6 On Your Side will be traveling around the area once again this season highlighting our Friday Frenzy Team of the Week. This season, we’re starting in Corryton where the Gibbs Eagles have high hopes for 2019. Gibbs begins its season with a key game against the Halls Red Devils.

Each game starts at 7:30 p.m. unless written otherwise.
