The Oak Ridge Wildcats are focused on another run to the playoffs in 2015. The Wildcats went undefeated in the regular season last year, falling in the quarterfinals of the playoffs to Rhea County.

But a lot of the talent on that 2014 team is returning. Oak Ridge welcomes back all its starters at the skill positions and some key guys on the defensive front.

“Our defense was real good last year, largely because of our front,” said head coach Joe Gaddis. “We have two big defensive ends returning. We have two linebackers that are returning on the inside that are now three-year starters. So, lot of experience on the defensive front.”

Oak Ridge opens the season at home against Clinton on August 21.
