Admirals Named 2017 Team of the Year

Wednesday, at the first inaugural News Sentinel Sports Awards presented by Farm Bureau Health Plans, the Farragut Admirals were named Team of the Year.

Farragut, which returned just 10 starters from the 2015 season, embarked on a run that ended with it winning its first state football championship in program history. A double overtime victory over Ooltewah in the Class 5A quarterfinals paved the way for the Admirals to get to the championship game, where it had to rally from a 28-point deficit to beat Independence.
