2018 Smith County High School Football Preview

J.R. Smith of DTC Sports discusses the upcoming football season with Smith County head football coach, Mike Dickerson.

Smith County finished 9-4 last season, winning the Region 4-3A Championship and the first two rounds of the playoffs in exciting fashion. The Owls’ season ended with a quarterfinal round loss at Chattanooga Red Bank. Smith County had its best season of the Mike Dickerson era in 2017, spearheaded by the play of an excellent senior class, headlined by the likes of Carson Hackett, Shermar King, Jaylon Shepperson and Bryant Goolsby. The Owls have quite a few holes to fill this season, particularly at the skill positions and on defense, but there are several eager, young players ready to step up to the task.
