For the second week in a row, we will be streaming the Coalfield football team live on BBBTV12.com, Facebook, YouTube, Periscope and all the streaming devices by using the BoxCast Channel.

The Yellow Jackets (12-0) are coming off a 36-0 win over Oliver Springs last Friday night at Rochelle Field in Coalfield. They are averaging 37.3 points per game while giving up 10.8 points per game.
This will be the fifth time that Coalfield will have had to travel to South Pittsburg to play for a chance to play in the 2020 Class A Blue Cross Bowl. It’s the seventh time that the two schools have played, all in the TSSAA Playoffs, and Coalfield is 0-6 all-time against South Pittsburg. This is the third time that Coalfield will be playing South Pittsburg in the Semifinal round
The last time Coalfield played in a semifinal game was in 2014 when they played Monterey at Tucker Stadium in Cookeville, a game that the Jackets would win 42-8 and earn their first-ever trip to the TSSAA Championship game, which they lost to Union City, now a Class 2A school.
South Pittsburg defeated Gordonsville on the road last Friday, 37-7, to earn a trip to the Semifinal matchup with Coalfield. South Pittsburg has 2 Mr. Football Finalists in Hunter Frame and Jared Stone an offensive lineman.
The Yellow Jackets tied a school record last Friday night with 12 wins, a feat first done in 2006 under then head coach, Garry Kreis. That team had 12 straight wins but lost to Hampton, 30-12 in a Quarterfinal loss at Coalfield.
South Pittsburg head coach, Vic Grider, has a 4-0 record against Coalfield and an astonishing 231-54 overall career record (.810). The first time that Coalfield and South Pitt met was in the 1994 playoffs, a 63-6 win by the Pirates over the Jackets. Matter of fact, the Pirates have outscored Coalfield, 269-46 in the 7 victories they have over the Jackets.
The game will feature the #1 South Pittsburg Pirates vs. the #2 Coalfield Yellow Jackets, as ranked in the final 2020 Regular Season AP Poll back in early November.
