On Saturday, October 14, 2017, the Fentress County Senior Bulldogs faced off against the Smith County Owls in the Middle Tennessee Youth Football Conference Super Bowl at Upperman High School in Baxter, TN.  Both teams showed up, ready to battle. With bone-jarring hits, zig-zagging and full-force ahead runs, and a mind-blowing bizarre play at the goal line, the Senior Bulldog players and coaches overcame all obstacles during the 2017 season and brought home the Super Bowl win 13-6 to finish with a perfect season.

The Bulldogs received the opening kickoff and the Owl defense stopped the Bulldogs after 4 plays and took over on offense.  The Bulldog defense held the Owl offense to negative net yards and took over on offense.
