It’s football time in Tennessee… Opening game of prep season brings sigh of relief for local fans

There is nothing that gets most people fired up in Tennessee than a game of football whether it’s youth league, high school, college, or professional – it doesn’t really matter because it’s football.
Last Friday night, the Elizabethton Cyclones kicked off their 2020 season and this week Hampton, Happy Valley, and Cloudland will get in on the action as local fans are keeping their fingers, toes, and eyes crossed that a complete season can be played.
Star Photographer Brandon Hyde was passing around the field and through the stands during the Cyclone’s first game of the season and caught some of the excitement that football has brought back to the Carter County community.
