UT Head coach Butch Jones has raved about incoming freshman and Vol legacy player Todd Kelly Jr. Without TK, his alma mater will attempt to defend it's state football championship from a year ago.
Yes, I'm referring to the Webb School Spartans who won another state championship with T-K's help last season...
A number of those players are back for another run this year including highly touted recruit Brant Mitchell who'll likely play linebacker in college. As for the Spartans formula for success, Brant says it's quite simple,
"...we have the intention of going into every game like we're going to win the game we have the motivation to the highest degree after that it's all up to what we do on the field, we've got 30 something guys, compared to other teams that's a big obstacle to overcome, but that's what hard work is for to be able to last."
Head coach David Meske is back for his 30th year with webb school which opens the season against fellow defending state champion Maryville on August 22nd.
