There sure are a lot of great high-school football teams in the Knoxville area, and several of them will be competing for state championships this weekend at Tennessee Tech in Cookeville.

No one should be surprised to see that Blount County's perennial powerhouses Maryville (6A) and Alcoa (2A) will be there, playing for their respective championships. (Marvyille, 14-0, takes on Hendersonville, 11-3, Saturday at 8 p.m., and Alcoa, 13-1, plays Christ Presbyterian Academy, 14-0, at 4 p.m. Friday.) Meanwhile, Fulton High School (4A) is capping off an amazing season of record-breaking scoring, and Knoxville West (5A) is making its first-ever appearance in a state championship game. (Fulton, 14-0, plays Giles County, 12-2, at 4 p.m. Saturday, and West, 13-1, takes on Henry County, 14-0, at 8 p.m. Friday.)

Knoxville Webb, 9-2, kicks the championships off, playing for the Division II-A crown against St. George's, 9-3, at 4 p.m. Thursday.

So with all of these great local teams going for the gold, who do you think is MOST likely to win? (We hope they all do!)
