CTK: Union County Patriots

Maynardville, Tenn.--(WVLT) It is game week for many of our east Tennessee high schools and that
includes the Union County Patriots...
coach Ethan Edmiston's guys will enter the season with more optimism then they've had in a long time.
That's because the pats snapped a long winless streak last year on their way to three wins.
May not seem like much to others, but to the Pats it's a huge step in the right direction.
Edmiston:"....We've got a lot of kids coming back, 6 on offense 7 on defense that had a lot of playing time last year, I feel like they have more belief
in actually having a good season last year that was a struggle at the beginning to get the kids to believe, hey we can do this to get it turned around so I feel like it's a much better place than last year."
One of the 13 returning starters is QB- Josh Steele. The Pats kick things off this Friday, August 22nd at Grainger.
