Celebrating ‘heart’

Anderson County Head Football Coach Davey Gillum received the “Gatorade Bath” following the overtime win against the Elizabethton Fightin’ Cyclones Friday night. The Mavs trailed 21-7 to start the second half, but fought back to tie the game before sealing the deal in extra play. In the grand scheme of the Anderson County High School football season, losing Friday night would not have spelled doom. But the win exacted a bit of revenge for the Mavs, who were eliminated in the playoffs by the Cyclones in 2021. And it showed Anderson County fans the true heart of its team.
