County in early running for five district football titles
Three weeks into the football season Williamson County teams are still in the early running to win championships in all five districts that touch the county.
A county winner is almost guaranteed in District 11-AAA, where Independence (3-0, 1-0) sits atop the standings. Franklin (2-0, 1-0) and Centennial (1-2, 1-0) both remain undefeated in the chase. Undefeated Ravenwood (2-0) was off last week and won't face a district opponent until the fifth week of the season when they open with Independence. Summit, Brentwood and Dickson County all sit 0-1 in the district.
Fairview (3-0, 2-0) has made two huge moves towards winning the District 11-AA title with a road win over Stewart County Friday night. That followed a spanking of pre-season favorite Camden last week. Undefeated Lewis County (3-0, 1-0) and Hickman County (2-0, 1-0) await the Yellow Jackets in Weeks Six and Eight.
Page (1-2, 0-1) faces a tougher road in District 12-AA, having lost its first district contest on the road at Marshall County last week. But with the county's most prolific passer in Zak Mizell, who has thrown for over 1,000 yards in the first three games, the Patriots have the potential to at least make the play-offs if not win the title outright.
In Division II-A D-1, Battle Ground Academy (2-1, 0-0) is the coaches' pick to take it all. The Wildcats, after beating Goodpasture Friday night, continues with out of distirct contests until Week Six.
An expected dog fight in Division II-AA may be smoldering after Friday night's upset of Brentwood Academy by Father Ryan. The Eagles were expected to battle with MBA and Ensworth for supremacy, and the unexpected set back may be a wake up call.
Even with the loss, Brentwood Academy could take the title by winning out in the district.
