Dyersburg and West Creek clawed out a low-scoring scrimmage in the Blackman High School auxiliary gymnasium Saturday.
Dyersburg ventured 200 miles east to compete with many of Middle Tennessee’s top teams Saturday. The Trojans glistened in 2017-2018, winning 82.1% of their games and sweeping their district regular season. West Creek found late season success by winning 13 of their final 17 games. For the Coyotes of West Creek 2017 was a learning experience necessary for growth.
That painful November-December 2017 growth made West Creek a better team. And Dyersburg’s stout Trojans witnessed that Saturday.
Unlike West Creek, DHS fields a very different team from last season. While WCHS returned almost their entire squad Dyersburg
graduated three deeply impactful seniors (Brandon Williams–Blue Mountain College, Kevin Spencer–Army FB, Niko Mann). All three were good students and great leaders. Their absence will be noticed.
Scores are not as important in scrimmages as trends, cohesion, unity, character, etc.
Check out five emergent themes from the clash.
