Duane Sherrill photo Colby Barnes was the workhorse for the DeKalb County Middle School Saints during their season opening win at Avery Trace this past week. Barnes had a touchdown and over 100 yards in the Saints 16-14 win in Cookeville.
The DeKalb Middle School Saints marched out of Cookeville with a season-opening win, dominating the host Avery Trace Raiders in the first half only to have to hold on with a white-knuckle grip to claim a 16-14 victory. The kickoff to the season in Cookeville looked to be well in hand for the Saints as the Justin Poteete-coached squad imposed its will on the hosts early. “We were able to move the ball on the ground,” Poteete noted, "and we did well defensively in the first half."
