SOUTH PITTSBURGH, TN (WRCB) -- It's easily one of the most heated and oldest rivalries in the state. Dating back to 1924 and still going strong, Marion County and South Pittsburg will meet once again in our Friday Night Football Game of the Week.
Marion County returns much of the same talent but not the same coaching staff from one year ago. A late season scandal leading up to the South Pittsburg game in 2013 led to resigned coaching staff.
The Warriors (8-1, 3-1) led now by Ricky Ross have positioned themselves for another shot at the District 6A Championship against the Pirates (5-4, 3-0.)
South Pittsburg has won eight straight games over Marion County. We'll hear from both teams in the coming days. Ch. 3 Eyewitness Sports Reporter Vince Lennon and former Chattanooga Moc Jordan Tippit will be live at South Pittsburg High School this Friday at 5,6 and 11pm when Friday Night Football returns.
