Cavs’ Ward tabbed
Titans’ top coach
Crockett County head coach Kevin Ward — whose team will host Obion Central Friday night — was the winner of the weekly Tennessee Titans Coach of the Week award.
A longtime assistant at Westview before building Camden into a respectable program and then taking over at CC before last season, Ward saw his team rally in the fourth quarter for a 36-33 win over Haywood last week.
The Cavaliers are 3-0, equalling last season’s win total.
The Titans Foundation will give $1,000 to Crockett County High School, and Ward will be a guest of the Titans at the team’s final regular season game Dec. 30 against Jacksonville.
Keith Hodge of Dresden also earned strong consideration for the award as a result of the Lions’ 35-14 win over McKenzie.

Vol athlete charged
with beating female
KNOXVILLE (AP) — Tennessee track team member Tyler Anderson has been charged with domestic assault and vandalism after police say he beat his ex-girlfriend with his right arm, which was in a cast at the time.
Knoxville police spokesman Darrell DeBusk said Wednesday that Anderson, a long jumper and triple jumper, is accused of striking his ex-girlfriend in the face, nose and jaw. DeBusk says Anderson also caused scratches on both her arms and bruised her legs.
DeBusk says Anderson ripped the mailbox out of the ground and threw it onto the road as he was leaving.
