2016 District 1A, District 1 Review – Week 5

  • Russellville (5-0) – Their five opponents have a combined record of 6-19 this season.  The Panthers currently lead Class A in scoring with 240 points.
  • Fulton City (1-4) – Lost to South Fulton (TN) 0-48 last week.  South Fulton (TN) is 3-2 with one loss coming to #1 ranked Union City (TN).
  • Fulton County (0-4) – Fulton County was taken down easily by Gibson County (TN) 12-49.  Gibson County is now 3-2 on the season with two of the wins coming against Fulton County and Fulton City.


2016 Playoff Outlook – 1A, District 2

  • Bethlehem (2-2) – Still several questions to be answered with this team.  Look for them to be possibly challenged by Campbellsville for the district title.
  • Campbellsville (1-4) – Strength of schedule may have hurt the Eagles record early in the season as two of their opponents are ranked in the AP poll this past week.  Another loss came to Glasgow which is 4-0 and unranked in state polls.  Expect a huge win against Fort Knox next week.
  • Caverna (0-5) – One of two 0-5 teams in 1A this year.  Don’t expect much other than a win against Fort Knox the rest of the season.  Most likely they will hold the #3 district seed.
  • Fort Knox (0-4) – They have been outscored 22-168 on the season.  Looks like a #4 seed in the district will again be Fort Knox’s destiny this season.
