    That’s a great choice. Ken Sparks is a great coach who expects his ball players to develop character not only on the field but off the field as well.

    Make that Jefferson City, not Johnson City. It’s the next county east of Knoxville.

    Congrats to both of these young men. They will be a great addition to the football program at Carson Newman.
    Being able to coach these guys early on in their football career was a delight. Watching them develop over the years
    as young men and football standouts has been exciting. I look for nothing but great things as the move on to the college level.
