Although the regular season got started last night, there are eight more games tonight across Tennessee.
For the second straight year, tnhighschoolfootball.com will take a quick look at all 55 regions in all classifications.
This season, DII-A has a new look as Webb School at Bell Buckle is joining 11 man football for the first time after several years as a eight man football program.
They replace Ezell Harding, who will replace Webb School in the eight man ranks.
Also the West region gets three new teams joining Division II-A as both Columbia Academy and Trinity Christian come to DII-A from Class 2A, while University School of Jackson come into DII-A after spending time in Division II-AA.
The region rundown has the following six categories, a list of the region teams, who the new region head coaches are, who the longest tenured coach is in the region, who the region kingpin is and how many consecutive region games they have won, four region players to watch and the four teams that will be playoff bound this year (both categories are listed alphabetically).
