Local Sports

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – A hat placed delicately on a trademark stool paved the way for an emotional night at Carter High School. The stool symbolic of defensive line coach Clyde Moore who passed away earlier this week as a result of complications from diabetes. Moore’s legacy at Carter spanned a surplus of twenty years starting in 1995 with Carter middle school.

The Hornets posted 345 yards of offense in Thursday’s 19-18 loss to Halls. The Red Devils victory marking the first time since the 1996 football season that Halls started the year with five consecutive wins.
