White Co. Focused on Finishing Season Strong, Despite Missing Playoffs

The four-year senior football players have seen a bit of everything during their time as White County Warriors. Their freshmen year in 2018 consisted of an 0-10 record, that pushed a program-worst losing streak to 24 total games. That was enough for White County High School administration to ask the TSSAA if the program could play the next two seasons as an independent, with the hopes of building a more competitive team for the coming years.

The Warriors halted their winless skid with a victory over Cannon County in their first game of the 2019 season. White County posted a 5-5 mark that season, and followed it up with a 5-4 campaign in 2020 – their first winning season since 2013 – despite COVID wreaking havoc on the football season statewide.

This season, Coach Mark Frasier and his team – especially those battle-tested seniors – had their sights set on the playoffs, as they returned to Region competition. The Warriors have faced a rugged Region schedule, with three teams from Region 5-5A ranked among the State’s Top 10 in that classification. The result has left White County short of their goal of reaching the playoffs, but many positives can and will be taken from this season.

Coach Frasier joined UC Sports Nation to discuss White County’s journey back to respectability, as his squad prepares for their final two games of the regular season, including their Region finale Friday night at Hunters Lane.
