(WVLT) -- When it comes to winning state championships, Maryville has always preferred to "just do it."

Now, the Rebels' football team will be doing it in Nike gear.

According to the Knoxville News-Sentinel, the company has reached a three-year agreement with Maryville City Schools to provide -- at an unnamed cost -- the football team with Nike uniforms and accessories. According to the article, the Rebels will be one of fewer than 40 teams nationwide, and the first in Tennessee, to sign with Nike.
