Donovan Stewart’s Week 4 Victory Formation

Donovan Stewart’s Week 4 Victory Formation

The last time that East Robertson beat Jo Byrns on the football field, Bill Clinton was in the White House.

The year was 1999 and since then Jo Byrns has dominated the Robertson County rivalry beating the Indians 16 straight times (didn’t play in 2003 and 2004).

“Jo Byrns is definitely our biggest rival and it means so much to the community,” East Robertson head coach Chad Broadrick said. “Hasn’t been much of a rivalry in football. We haven’t done our part obviously. Hopefully we can do better.”

In fact since the 34-7 East Robertson win back in 1999, the Red Devils have dominated the Indians as they have outscored them 682-156 (42.6-10.6) in the 16 game winning streak.

But that all changed Friday night as East Robertson junior quarterback Cameron Swift had 197 yards of total offense (129 rushing and 68 passing) and two rushing touchdowns as the Indians snapped the streak beating Jo Byrns 22-8.

The Indians (3-1) got two big turnovers and a goal line stand on defense and after they recovered a fumble on Jo Byrns first offensive series of the game, Broadrick dialed up a fake punt on fourth down as Swift found Jamal Payne for a 50 yard catch to set up East Robertson’s first touchdown.

“Really happy for our school and community and proud of our kids for how they fought and we did a good job of just playing the next play and with this win, I know why the community is so excited,” Broadrick said.

The Indians are off to their best start since starting 3-1 back in 2009 and Broadrick is trying to keep his young team grounded as they are trying to make the playoffs for the first time in eight years.

The 2009 Indian team was the last to make the playoffs as the made the Class 2A playoffs but also won a first round playoff game that season.

“We have to make sure we move on and are focused on a well coached Jackson County team this week,” Broadrick said.

East Robertson wasn’t the only school to end frustration and streaks on Friday.

Alcoa 34, Maryville 28– The state’s No. 1 3A team beat the state’s No. 1 6A team to halt a seven game losing streak in Blount County best rivalry.

Alcoa senior quarterback Walker Russell had a huge hand in the Tornadoes first win over Maryville since 2010 as he passed for 214 yards and three touchdowns and also added another 53 yards on the ground.
Fellow senior Connor Canfield caught three passes for 104 yards and two were for touchdowns while sophomore running back Ahmaudd Sankey added 97 yards and a touchdown as well and the Tornado defense took advantage of three Maryville fumbles.

West Carroll 25, Dresden 20– West Carroll is 4-0 for the first time since 2004 and finally broke a eight game losing streak to Dresden.

West Carroll got rushing touchdowns from four different players in Jarrius Weatherford (108 yards), Jeremiah Bryant (83 yards), P.J. Odom (69 yards) and Trace Fuller (58) in the win.

The win for West Carroll also broke a 17 game region 7-1A winning streak for Dresden (3-1) as they have won the last two region titles.

“It was an awesome win for our football program, this team and especially these seniors. I couldn’t be more proud of my guys,” West Carroll coach Josh Wolfe said.
