“The Battle of the Boro” kicks off yet again this Friday night, as Oakland and Riverdale face off in one of the best rivalries in the state of Tennessee. This rivalry began back in 1974, and both teams are consistently two of the best in the state.

Riverdale does lead the overall series 31-15, but Oakland have won the last five meetings between the two. Oakland will look to continue their streak and keep cutting into the Riverdale lead in the series. Join us this Friday night to see who wins “The Battle of the Boro.”


Brevin Linnell


Robby Owens


Robby is an outstanding young man and has been dedicated to the program for the past three years. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for him.
Xavier Myers


Xavier is a three-year letterman on the varsity football team. Myers racked up over 2000 yards on the ground last season and was a finalist for Mr. Football. He plans to attend Illinois State.


Dave Thomas


Dave played in the Battle of the Boro all four years and led his team to a perfect 15-0 season and a state title. Thomas was named American General Mr. Football Back of the Year, before going on to play at the University of Memphis.
Jack Jones


Jack helped the Patriots to wins over Riverdale in 2013 and 2014. His unmatched physicality on the offensive line helped him to Mr. Football honors both his junior and senior seasons at Tennessee’s Most Valuable Lineman. Jack went on to continue his career at the University of Tennessee and helped the Volunteers to wins in two bowl games. Jack’s football career was cut short due to inoperable cervical injuries, but will graduate with a degree in communications. Accepting the award on Jack’s behalf is his father, John.


Oakland felt confident coming into this one, and why wouldn't they? From the opening kickoff, they showed their dominance on the offensive and defensive end. Holding Riverdale to just six points all night, the offense then added 49 points to easily defeat arch rival Riverdale.
