Countdown to Kickoff: Coalfield Yellow Jackets

COALFIELD, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Coalfield was just one win away from reaching the 2010 Class A title game.

With the arrival of 2011, the Yellow Jackets should have have the sting to make another state title run.

Head coach Keith Henry returns 15 total starters (7 on offensive, 8 on defense) from last year's 10-3 squad.

Expectations will come with that success, but success also breeds momentum.

"They've gained a tremendous amount of confidence," Coalfield coach Keith Henry said. "They got that swagger back. You like to see that. You like to see that swagger."

The Yellow Jackets open up the season August 19 at Pigeon Forge.
