PREVIEW: Daniel Boone vs. David Crockett (TN)

October 29, 2013

GRAY, TN – The Musket is on the line when the Daniel Boone Trailblazers and the David Crockett Pioneers go head-to-head in the annual “Musket Bowl” on Friday at 7:30 p.m. (EST) at Daniel Boone High School. More than 8,000 fans are expected for a game that’s part of the 2013 Great American Rivalry Series presented by the U.S. Marine Corps and Hibbett Sports.

The winner of the rivalry receives a “musket” to proudly display. Daniel Boone won 48-8 last season and has only lost 11 times in the series since 1971.

The Trailblazers are coached by Jeremy Jenkins and are enduring a disappointing season after going 8-3 in 2012. They are 3-6 with five straight losses, including a 49-20 loss to Science Hill in their last game, a game in which sophomore quarterback Caleb Sanders threw two TD passes to sophomore Ryan Keever.

The Jeremy Bosken-coached Pioneers have more than doubled their win total from last season, as they are 5-4 despite a 41-6 loss to Tennessee High snapping a three-game winning streak. In the loss, sophomore quarterback Ryan Burger threw for over 220 yards and ran for a TD but threw seven picks.
