Cyclones welcome Daniel Boone for season opener4:38 am | August 23, 2013
Everything that’s transpired from spring workouts through Aug. 22 is in the books.
All of the hard work, practicing and scrimmages aside, tonight’s kick-off is what Elizabethton’s football team has been waiting for since their Class 3-A semifinal exit last fall.
“Tomorrow’s a chance for us to show people how hard we’ve worked because our kids have paid a huge price this offseason,” said Cyclones head coach Shawn Witten.
The first true test for a team that lost a bevy of seniors from the team one year ago and will mix experience with new faces that are untested underneath the Friday-night lights, Daniel Boone visits Brown-Childress Stadium off of a nice 8-3 campaign in a tough Big Eight (Now Big Seven) Conference last fall.
