Kingston traveled to Greenback and collided with the best single A team in the state, losing 41-0. Greenback is a tough venue for any team and Friday night was no exception. The Jackets played a tough game but ultimately come up short. New faces are becoming less new and more normal as more players get worked into the ballgame as the season progresses. It is always fun watching new faces receive well deserved playing time.
I have compiled rushing statistics sourced from the Roane County News. I hope to add receiving statistics next week. Here are the top three rushers to date.

Kingston heads to Scott high school this Friday, September 30, at 7:30 pm to face off against the Highlanders in a tough district game.
The Kingston Yellow Jackets were upbeat and excited about traveling to Christian Academy of Knoxville (CAK) Friday night. The weather conditions were near perfect for a Friday night high school football game. I counted five different major news agencies on the sidelines covering the game. Being a district game, playoff implications create an atmosphere only experienced on a Friday night.
CAK jumped out with an early lead and never looked back. The players left it all on the field and played four quarters of football but it wasn't meant to be for Kingston. Kingston played to the end and lost to CAK 42 to 22.
Kingston travels to Greenback Friday, September 23.

It was my first game photographing volleyball and I immediately knew it was going to be a challenge. The speed of the game makes this one of the more challenging sports I have photographed. I really have not experienced a sport as difficult to photograph as volleyball. The Junior Varsity Lady Jackets defeated Alcoa 2-0 and the Varsity Lady Jackets fell to Alcoa 3-1.
It also happened to be senior night and I was able to get two photos of the two seniors playing and with their families. Their teammates were cheering them on and everyone seemed to be genuinely happy and overjoyed for their seniors on the team.

The Zeiss Batis 18mm F2.8 is a native full frame lens for Sony E mount cameras. The lens is surprisingly lightweight for its low distortion, wide angle, moderately large aperture for a lens at this focal length, and the inclusion of auto focus. The Batis 18 is physically larger than the Batis 25, but the size is not indicative of the weight. The lens weighs 330 grams, which is 5 grams lighter than the Batis 25.
Rockwood visited Kingston Thursday night. The game was dominated with both teams running and grinding it out. New faces continue to pick up valuable experience and playing time on both sides. Kingston won the game 35 - 14.
It was also alumni night for all former Kingston football players. One player that had played for Kingston in the 1940s was present on the field. Simply amazing! Check out the full photo gallery of the 1600+ photos here.
Next week Kingston is on the road Friday night, September 16, at Christian Academy of Knoxville (CAK) at 7:30 pm.
Kingston faced off against McMinn Central Friday night in a game that would have both fan bases on their feet the entire game. Both teams exchanged the lead back and forth until the end when McMinn Central took over on downs to win the game. See all 1300+ photos from the game.
