GREENBACK, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Greenback Cherokees exceeded low expectations in 2010. Now, they're faced with the task of living up to high ones.

A sophomore-laded squad fought its way to an 8-4 record and a second-round playoff berth last season. This year, 18 starters return for Justin Ridge's team, and optimism abounds.

If the Cherokees are to reach their goals, they'll need to overcome an improving District 3-A. Harriman, Grace and Rockwood promise to provide plenty of challenges.
