Just Add Water Downpour, McMinn no match for Rebels

Maryville head coach Derek Hunt discusses a call with official Barry Mathis.
Corbin Price was pressed into service to become Maryville's kicker this season at the jamboree.
It's turning out to be a great call.
Price admires his work on a Rebel PAT.
A.J. Davis kicks in the burners after eluding the first line of would-be tacklers.
Goal line sighted.
Give the man six!
Senior defensive back Jackson Jett perfects his Jedi levitation game with a McMinn County ball carrier.
It's the other team, and Maryville would visit a 30-0 shutout on the Cherokees in the Region 2-6A championship game. Still, this is cool.
Time to go to work.
Maryville's Eli Householder (51), Clay Oliver (37) and Jackson Jett, awaiting the coin toss, are not impressed.
Rebel senior Will Myers locks in on a McMinn County ball carrier.
Myers lowers the boom.
It's a FUMBLE!!!!!!!!!!!
With Tennessee commitment Tee Hodge sidelined with injury earlier this season, junior Parker McGill just went off. We'll go ahead and call the Blount County rushing champion for the 2019 season. McGill is already over 1,000 with a regular season game and the playoffs to go.
With Hodge (44) back, Maryville will enter postseason in a week's time with an awfully versatile offense. (Editor: Check out the block by Rebel tight end Brody Sloan, at right.)
His name is Jackson Jett, after all. So of course there's some flying around involved.
Linebacker Mason Shelton seems pretty excited, too.
Rebels, region champs!
