JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Friday may well be the hottest day of the season, so far, with an expected high of 95 coupled with a max heat indices of 103. As a result, coaches Jeff McMillan of Fulton and Campbell’s Justin Price decided it would be in the best interest of all concerned to push the kick-off to 8pm.

“What we have to take into consideration is that our players, both teams, take the field to begin warming up about an hour and a half before kick-off. That puts us out there at 6:30 rather than 5:30pm,” said Coach Price.

Sunset is 8:14 and should give everyone a better chance in dealing with the heat, according to Price. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 08/23/2023-2PM)
