metro jamboree

By Dale Krisle

Antioch High School played host to the opening night of the 50th Metro Nashville Football Jamboree on Thursday night. The Jamboree provides teams with a valuable opportunity to fine tune their squads before beginning the regular season next week. It also provides Metro teams a chance to match up against their neighboring schools for bragging rights across classifications.

Defending 6A state runner-up Cane Ridge squared off against 3A Stratford in the first game of the evening. Each game lasted 2 quarters with the ball starting at the 30-yard line in lieu of kickoffs.

The Stratford Spartans showed good physicality against the Ravens early. Running back James Moore ran well all night and especially looked good on the opening drive of the game as he quickly hit two large runs up the middle to move Stratford into Cane Ridge territory.

However, penalties stunted the Spartan momentum and would prove to be a problem for Stratford all game. The Spartan defense also started the game aggressively and shut down the high powered Raven offense in the first quarter. DL Jaalon Gupton and linebacker Tomory Stephens helped lead the Stratford defense that showed signs of being a solid unit this season.

The second matchup of the night pitted the host Antioch Bears against the Hillwood Hilltoppers. Hillwood returns a veteran quarterback in Hale Page this season.
