Starting a game on the right foot is a tremendous receipe for winning games. Well, the Cloudland (TN.) High football team did juat that on Friday night.

That's the best way to describe Thursday night's junior varsity football game between Watauga High and Alexander Central. The contest resembled a racket ball match.

The Watauga High football team has turned into a well-oiled machine under the direction of head coach Ryan Habich. In just his second season at the helm, the Pioneers (1-0) have established themselves as a team with big-play ability.
