September 12, 2019 marked the 91st meeting between Maryville High School and Alcoa High School—two football powerhouses with 33 state championships between them. Only five miles lie between the two schools, and, as one fan declared, “If you win this game, you win the county.” Though Maryville led the series 62-25, Alcoa took home the win last year, leading to fierce competition during this 2019 faceoff. Alcoa swiftly earned a field goal in the first quarter, leading the game until the 2nd quarter when Maryville tied the game 3 to 3. Despite three turnovers by Maryville, Alcoa offense couldn’t seem to get past them. After a third quarter, Maryville went on a roll, scoring two touchdowns in rapid succession. Thrilled Maryville fans rushed the field after the clock ran out to 17-3 Maryville victory. Junior quarterback #09 Cade Chambers had an especially stellar evening, leading him to be named the United States Marine Corps Most Valuable Player.
