In that quarter, CCHS turned around a 14-12 deficit with five unanswered touchdowns. They added another in the second half to win the high school football contest 43-14.

Less than 30 seconds into the 2016 high school football season, Chester County had a 7-0 lead. The Eagles had scored on a 57-yard run on the first play from scrimmage.

No doubt, you have noticed that it has been hot and dry. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) says July 2016 was the hottest month on record for the globe, and as of the middle of August, the U.S. Drought monitor recorded that roughly two-thirds of Tennessee is experiencing abnormally dry to severe drought conditions.
