Countdown to Kickoff: Central

Knoxville, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Joe Hassell returns for his third season as head coach of the Cats.
He calls the plays on offense, but will have a new efensive coordinator in Roy stone now that Tobi kilgore is at Powell...
central's offense took a hit when QB Xavier Johnson moved into the Bearden school zone.
But the Bobctas are loaded at running back with Sophomore Jeremiah Howard and seniors Josh Poplar and JaJuan Stinson leading the way.
Poplar says, "...right now it's a two back system, but we'll rotate because we all play defense so we all will get our share of touches."
Coach Hassell adds, "...when you can line up those three kids anywhere on the field and get them the ball, in my opinion there all three all state caliber backs, it's my job to get them the touches that they need."
Central opens the season August 29th on MyVlt. It's our Rivalry Thursday game next week...
Don't forget our rivalry Thursday opener this thursday night at 7 featuring Fulton at Powell...
