Rangers journey to Midway for Class 1A playoff tilt

5:02 am | November 7, 2013

Unaka’s football team is on a three-game winning streak, and don’t plan on letting up as the Class 1A state playoffs begin.

The Rangers (4-6) visit Midway (7-3) on Friday night.

“Our kids have got a little confidence now,” Unaka coach Steve McKinney said before Wednesday’s practice. “I think we’ll be OK.”

Spark-plugging the Green Wave is versatile signal-caller Shandon Lyle. The senior does it all between the lines, and McKinney even referred to him as “Johnny Football” — drawing a likeness to Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M.
