FHS football resumes with Saturday game in Lebanon

After missing two weeks of varsity football competition due to a school closure resulting from COVID-19 concerns, the Fairview High School Yellow Jacket Football Team is ready to take the field this Saturday.

Going off schedule a little, the Yellow Jackets will be traveling east to Wilson County on Saturday to compete against the Lebanon Blue Devils.

The Jackets were originally scheduled to play Greenbrier at home. However, the recent Fairview High closure would not allow the Jackets to play until Saturday – and Greenbrier was not interested in playing their weekly game on Saturday. 

That’s when Fairview High’s eager coaching staff reached out to find another opponent.

Lebanon was scheduled to play Beech Friday night, but Beech was also on a two-week shutdown like Fairview High and unable to play the scheduled Friday night game.

The Lebanon coaches, who were also eager to get in some playing time, agreed to this Saturday’s match-up against the Jackets.

Fairview High head football coach Chris Hughes said, “Lebanon is a good 6A team in Wilson County   They are 2-3, but play a very tough schedule. It will be a great test for us, but we’re just super excited we get to play.”
