FNF3 Preview: McMinn Central looking forward to returning to Chattanooga region

Posted: Updated:

For the past two seasons, McMinn Central had to fight off northern powerhouses CAK, and defending champion Alcoa in order to compete in the Class AAA-District 2. Now that won't be the case any longer.

McMinn Central will now be in the brand new Class AAA-District 3, with Brainerd, Red Bank, Signal Mountain, Loudon, and Sweetwater. 

"We're back down south in Chattanooga, which we're traditionally use to being" explains Coach Goodin. "We just had a terrible schedule before because on top of our district, we were playing Notre Dame, Rhea County, and McMinn County on top of that. So we don't hardly have that, not that our schedule's not tough this year, but it's a little different, and like I said a little more traditional. So we'll just have to wait and see how it turns out." 

Despite losing 23 seniors last season, the Chargers do return their starting quarterback, rising senior Hunter Powers. 

McMinn Central will open up the season August 18th against long-time rival McMinn County.
