Knoxville, Tenn (WVLT)-- We continue our countdown to kickoff of the 2012 high school football season with Gatlinburg-Pittman.
The legendary Benny Hammonds returns to lead a Highlanders team that's high on defense:
HAMMONDS: "...You've got to emphasize your defnese, I mean the ofense can score a lot of touchdowns and if you can't rely on your defense to hold 'em out of the endzone then you're in trouble, so were trying to put some extra emphasis on that this week, hopefully we can get all that into place and we'll be able to stop people."
The Highlanders have week zero off and open the season a week from friday at Cocke County.
