With a new stadium going up in front of our eyes and a fresh faced team on the field, a lot is changing with Elizabethton football this year.
The Cyclones are replacing Dave Rider field with a field turf in front of the school, and they’ll need to figure out a way to replace all state running back Ethan Thomas and a number of other talented players.
Reloading hasn’t been much of a problem for Shawn Witten and his group, though, and they’re excited about the challenge.
Betsy opens Citizens bank stadium Friday night, September 4th against Johnson County. They actually open the season a week earlier at Science Hill.
