Seymour head football coach Gary Householder will be looking for a sign, any sign, of progress from his team’s offense Friday night at the annual Sevier/Blount County High School Football Jamboree at Heritage High School.
The Eagles, who will play four-time defending Class 4A state champion Maryville at Friday’s jamboree, failed to score an offensive touchdown last week in a four-way scrimmage at Webb School against the hosts Spartans, Wartburg-Central and Kingston.
The Eagles’ defense, on the other hand, was nothing less than sterling at the scrimmage, allowing just one opponent touchdown all night. The 30-yard score on a trap play up the middle of the Eagles’ defense by the Spartans was the first touchdown allowed by the SHS defense this preseason.
