Donovan Stewart’s Week 10 Victory Formation

It hasn’t been a fun last three and a half football seasons for Antioch high school.


Since winning the 2017 season opener in a 20-16 win over Station Camp, the Bears then lost their last nine games of the season and then suffered through back-to-back 0-10 seasons in 2018 and 2019.


The Bears lost their first four games of this season as they were outscored 205 to 66 and they led the state with a 33-game losing streak which was not what second-year head coach Ian Marshall wanted to lead the state with.


But all the frustration and hurt the players and coaches had felt went away last Friday as the Bears beat McGavock 22-20 and got to celebrate a victory finally.


It didn’t start well for the Bears as McGavock got out to a 12-0 lead in the first quarter but Antioch fought back as running back E’Mony Jackson cut the deficit to 12-6 at the half as he scored from 34 yards out.


Antioch then took the lead at 14-12 in the fourth quarter as leading rusher Andrew Brown scored to tie the game at 12 and sophomore fullback Josiah Smith added a two-point conversion run.


After McGavock retook the lead at 20-14, the Bears fought through adversity and got the tie at 20 as quarterback Devin Tusie scored from two yards out and Smith gave them the win with his second two-point conversion run.


“It was a special moment to share with the kids and the coaching staff. There were most definitely a few tears shed, because I was happy that I could help them experience success, the only kind some of them have ever known,” Marshall said.


Brown lead the rushing with 125 yards while Jackson added 66 yards on the ground as well.


“Although the streak was something that started before I arrived, it felt like I had been here for each and every one of them. Winning is certainly a contagious feeling and I am sure that our young scholars will work hard trying to feel that experience again, we’re 1-0 right now and that is all that matters to us.”


Although the Bears (1-4) will not make the playoffs this season, the win gives them something to build on next season as they hope to make their first playoff appearance since 2016.


“I am happy for the Antioch Community (Current Students, Administration, and Alumni) because that is a huge burden that was felt by the community. I pray that moving forward parents and students will start to understand that Antioch has athletics to go along with its academic excellence. The Community is called Antioch. This is the community school pour into it, and I can promise you that some amazing things will happen in the future,” Marshall said.

Charlotte Gets Two In State Commitments
Will Healy continues to have good recruiting results in the state of Tennessee.

A week after getting a commitment from MUS linebacker D.J. Brown, the 49ers got two more commitments from East Tennessee as Alcoa linebacker Cam Burden and Red Bank linebacker B.J. Ragland have both pledged to Charlotte.

*Burden (6-2, 205) was the 2019 Class 3A Blue Cross Bowl MVP as the Tornadoes beat Pearl Cohn 28-0 as he made eight tackles, three tackles for loss and had two sacks in the win.

He chose the 49ers over Memphis, Elon, Mercer, Southeast Missouri State, Richmond, Gardner Webb, ETSU, Citadel, UT-Martin, Samford, Eastern Kentucky and Tulane.

Burden posted his commitment on Twitter.

“I’d like to thank God for the many blessings he has given me throughout my life. I’d like to thank my mom and dad for their unconditional love and support.

“I’d like to thank all my coaches, teammates and friends for believing in me. I’d like to thank all the college coaches for their time and consideration during this recruitment process. My dreams are turning into a reality. With that being said I’d like to announce that I am committed to UNC Charlotte,” Burden wrote on his Twitter profile.

Burden is the third Tornado that has committed in the 2021 class joining teammates  Ahmaudd Sankey (Southeast Missouri State) and Grey Carroll (Georgia Tech).

*Ragland had originally committed to Tulane in July but decommitted last month before committing to Charlotte over offers from Tulane, Army, Austin Peay, Campbell, Central Florida, Chattanooga, Coastal Carolina, East Carolina, Eastern Kentucky, Gardner Webb, Georgetown, Illinois State, Liberty, Marshall, MTSU, Navy, New Mexico, Richmond, Samford, SE Missouri State, Southern Miss, Tennessee State, Tennessee Tech, UT-Martin and Western Illinois.
