BLUFF CITY, Tenn.—Friday night proved to be a gloomy final chapter for the Sullivan East football team, as the Patriots fell to Volunteer in the regular-season finale for both teams in a gloomy final chapter for the Patriots.
Garrison Barrett surpassed the 5,yard passing milestone for his career and the Falcons locked down their first playoff bid since Volunteer (, ) will be the No. 3 seed out of Region A and will travel to face Fulton, the Region 2 runner-up, next week.
After Cason Christian intercepted East near the Falcons’ goal-line and ran it back for a pick-6, Volunteer led after three quarters, all but securing a season-ending loss for East (, ).
The Patriots kept scrapping until the very end. Sophomore QB Drake Fisher hit Hunter Brown from 5 yards out with remaining in the game to break up the shutout. Then, on what proved to be East’s final offensive play of the season, Fisher connected with Brayden Ringley—a freshman—from 47 yards with seconds showing on the game clock.
“I think there’s a bright future here,” Patriots coach J.C. Simmons said. “We’ve got a lot to work on. It only happens with work and effort and continually striving to get better.
“My guys, they never quit. We fought the whole time,” Simmons added. “Obviously we’re a young group, but losing this senior leadership is going to affect us next year. There’s no quit in the Patriots.”
