McCallie was one win away from the state championship game in 2018, losing by three points to MUS. The Blue Tornado bring back plenty of weapons on offense to get back there this season, it's the defense that hold it down.

Four-star defensive end recruit Jay Hardy leads McCallie up front and there's no doubt he can be a game wrecker for the Blue Tornado in 2019. Head coach Ralph Potter some concern in the secondary, but believes they can get it together by the start of the season.

The Blue Tornado open up on the road at Chattanooga Christian Friday, August 23rd at 7 p.m.
