Countdown to Kickoff: Seymour

SEYMOUR, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Head coach Jim Moore and his Eagles are working hard to end a recent Seymour trend.

"We're still not where we want to be, we're on the way back up," Moore said.

The last three years, Seymour has ended the season with a losing record. This after posting winning records for 16 straight seasons.

Now entering his fourth season, Moore could have his most experienced squad yet.

"A lot of the players have been playing since their sophomore year. We've got a larger senior class. They've done a great job in the weight room. They've done a good job as far as coming out and going on to the field with a coach-able attitude. That goes a long way."

Seymour opens up the season August 17 at Campbell County.
