CTK: Austin-East Roadrunners

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Austin-East should be a much-improved football team this season.

The Roadrunners struggled in head coach Jeff Phillips' first year, posting a 1-9 record.

But with 16 total starters back (8 on offense, 8 on defense) A-E has plenty of experience returning to improve on that mark.

Austin-East was the focus of Local 8 Sports' Countdown To Kickoff series Friday night at 11. Click on the video player to watch the story.
