Oliver Springs will be hosting Coalfield in a district game for the USA Today High School Game of the Week. Oliver Springs has the better record this season; although, Coalfield's two losses are respectable. Both of these teams' offenses have proven to be tough once they get into their groove. Depending on which school can find their groove first will determine who will take the lead in this game. My favor is in Oliver Spring's hands.
Powell will travel to Central for this district match-up. Powell only has one loss to the unstoppable Fulton Falcons and that does not look like it will change this week. Central has had two close losses and one strong win. The Bobcat offense is going to have to step up if they stand a chance against a decent team.
Both of these District 3-AA teams have perfectly clean records that include huge wins consecutively week after week. Unfortunately though, Week 4 is not looking to good for Gatlinburg-Pittman as they travel to Fulton. Fulton has depth on their roster that is going to be hard for the Highlanders to match up against. The teams Gatlinburg-Pittman have played do not have the same level of difficulty surrounding them to get the large deficits that the Falcons have faced. Fulton will pull ahead in their district Friday night.
Another match-up between undefeated teams at Maryville as they host Hardin Valley for Week 4. Maryville should have this game in complete control through all four quarters. Hardin Valley does not have a scratch on their record yet, but they have not had outstanding wins as well. The only team they have one against that shows potential is South-Doyle. Maryville has consistently shown out in all of their games and will do the same this week.
A district blowout will unfortunately occur at CAK in favor of Scott County. CAK has little hope in this game against the Highlanders. The Highlanders are on a high undefeated streak and will be hard to stop. The Warrior's defense gave up too many points to Webb last week and will need to hold Scott's offense, which in this case, will be very unlikely.
Anderson County will drown the Beavers tomorrow night getting most likely their biggest win. The Maverick's are undefeated going into this district game while Karns is defeated, not winning one single game. This game could get extremely ugly.
Halls will be visiting Gibbs for Week 4. Both of these teams' defenses have been struggling this season and neither teams' offenses have been able to make the moves to put up some points. This game has the potential to be slow and low-scoring if the offenses do not step up, or it has the potential to be high scoring due to the lack of defense.
Carter should get a break this week from their close wins with an easy win over Austin-East. Austin-East has yet to win a game this season or even make a game close. This should be another district blowout in which the Roadrunners will once again hit the road running from the Hornets.
Grace Christian is celebrating their homecoming game and hope to be celebrating a win at the end of the night. The Rams will host Harriman for this district game. Harriman has started their season off as "so-so" going 2-2. However, Grace is undefeated and do not plan on changing that on their big night. This will not be the easiest game for Grace as the Blue Devils will put up a fight, but Grace should triumph with not extreme trouble.
Another Friday night rivalry as West hosts the Admirals. Both teams have two wins under their belt and this will definitely be a battle you will not want to miss. Farragut is coming off of a rough loss to Fulton and will be out for Rebel blood as West just tasted sweet victory over Asheville. This game will be close and will not reveal the forefront team until the end.
More 10 Blitz games to catch: Alcoa should take an easy district win at Kingston. Also, Oak Ridge should up their win count as they host McMinn. Two other games worth mention that should be close: William Blount at Heritage and Lenoir City at Bearden.
