Changes In Region for Lions Football

Every two years, the TSSAA reviews classification for its member schools.  The governing body for prep sports has announced some changes to Cannon County’s Class 3-A, Region 4. The five members of the region now include;

Cannon Co. High School (Woodbury, TN)

Community High School (Unionville, TN)

Giles Co. High School (Pulaski, TN)

Grundy Co. High School (Coalmont, TN)

Sequatchie Co. High School (Dunlap, TN)

Cannon County Head Football Coach Matt Daniel had the following comments about the classification.

“I am excited about the addition of Community and Giles Counties into our Region and with the loss of Upperman, York, and Smith to other classifications and regions our region will look a lot different in 2021.    Cannon will be geographically at the center of this region and travel will be decent for us when it comes to away games in our region.  Giles County has had very good teams in the past and will be a challenge year in and year out.  Community is more familiar to us since we played them in non-region contests the last two years.  Sequatchie and Grundy are long-time region opponents and will continue to produce competitive teams. I look forward to our Region meeting and laying some groundwork to help support Region 4-3A.  Go Lions.”
