Remember the Chiefs?
That might be
something we say at the end of this season. After consecutive playoff
appearances, and back-to-back Monroe County titles, Sequoyah is
looking for even more success on the gridiron. Good teams are built
in the offseason and the chiefs have a chance to improve even more,
as they'll travel to Tusculum College for a week of fall camp.
Fall camp is a great way to build team
chemistry. We all remember the Titans, or at least Disney's
version. They arguably had the greatest fall camp in recorded
history. The infamous Herman Boone, who coached at T.C. Williams in
1971 knew how a summer camp could bring a team together. That camp at
Gettysburg College, propelled the Titans all the way to an undefeated
Sequoyah like Tellico Plains,
Sweetwater, and the rest of the state, will be allowed to start
hitting with pads on July 30. Some teams choose to hold camp at their
own schools and cut down on potential distractions of practicing in a
different environment. Other coaches will send their team out to face
other schools. The Chiefs for example, will scrimmage two or three
schools while up in Greenville.

Bill Satterfield probably isn't looking to inspire a movie, but he
would definitely settle for inspiring his team toward a state title.
For now though, he and the chiefs are just focused on becoming a
"It's always good when you can get together at camp.
We'll go up to Tusculum and see what happens. I think the guys will
get closer, and work hard," said Satterfield.
