Tigers, Cougars and Lions look to claw their way through week one of football season | Sports

The teams of Northview Academy, Pigeon Forge and The King’s Academy look to kick off the start of their football season with wins in important matchups in week one.

Head coach Justin Anderson will coach his first game at Northview Academy as the Cougars travel nearly 100 miles East to Unicoi County for a matchup against the Blue Devils. The Blue Devils took a 22-15 win in their week one matchup last season, but Coach Anderson has made an immediate impact on the culture within the football program and will look to start his tenure at the school 1-0.
