After two weeks on hold, CHS hosts Oak Ridge
Clinton returns to the field this week with a home region game against long-time football rival Oak Ridge.
The Dragons had to take two weeks off after a COVID-19 scare, and the game against Oak Ridge will be their first game after the time off.
“Unfortunately COVID struck and we had to shut down. ... That leaves me with questions again,” Clinton Head Football Coach Darell Keith said.
“Two weeks away from the game puts us without reps again, so will we pick up where we left off — or are we at zero?
“Basically I’m going into this game blind, that’s the dilemma.”
Clinton put up 14 points last year against Oak Ridge in a game the Dragons lost 27-14, the closest score they’ve had against Oak Ridge since 2015, when Clinton lost 24-13. Clinton is 0-5 this year, having to forfeit against Meigs County and Monroe County. The Dragons are ranked 36th in their division (5A) and 174th in the state.
