The 2009 football season started like many others for Cannon County’s Tyler Jacobs and his 12 fellow senior classmates.
New season, new coach.
This time it was Joel Schrenk - the third head football coach in four seasons for the 2009 senior class.
Posters with the words “We Believe” written on them were prominent in the windows of stores throughout Woodbury and banners replaced standing billboards relaying the same message as the town readied for Cannon County’s first TSSAA High School Football Playoff game since 1995 Friday night.
A standing-room only crowd at Fred Schwartz Field greeted the town’s first playoff football team in more than a decade and the gritty Lions gave their followers a gritty performance that fell just short in a gut-wrenching 29-20 setback to Harpeth.
