LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – It may not seem like it, but spring isn’t that far away, and the team East Tennessee Recon is already practicing for its first game.

The East Tennessee Recon is under the direction of Head Coach Max Keleher and Assistant Coach Matt Forsyth. Recon is a 7 and under (7-U) team comprised of these little fellows who come from Campbell, Anderson, Scott, Claiborne and Blount counties.

Coach Matt Forsyth hits some balls to the team.

At Liberty Field Thursday evening practicing for their first game, which is scheduled for Sat., March 5, was the East Tennessee Recon. Have a great and fun season, Recon!
