Blount Press Row

Dutch Treat!

BPR’s “Duchess” immortalizes a thriller!

Best line play shot ever. Jakobe Robinson (60) and Tristan Blankenship guard the gap.

The state football championships are always a big weekend for Blount Press Row. It means we’re on the home stretch to finish another year.

Photographer Jolanda Jansma, the “Duchess,” always double checks her pockets for her A-game when we get out of the car for a championship game. It was no different Saturday when No. 1-ranked Alcoa bested second-ranked Covington, 21-14, at Tennessee Tech’s Tucker Stadium.

Senior and Mr. Football quarterback Walker Russell scored the winning touchdown with 16 seconds remaining. Enjoy Jolanda’s take on an unforgettable championship night:

Junior linebacker Caden Tollett and cornerback Roy Jones Jr. (28) set the tone early for the Alcoa defense with this monster dunk.
