TSSAA Calls Cookeville Event A Success

TSSAA Executive Director Bernard Childress says Cookeville has been well received as site for the annual football championship games. According to the Cookeville Herald-Citizen, Childress said he's had no negative comments from those at the games Dec. 2-4 at Tucker Stadium at Tennessee Tech. The paper reported that 22,981 tickets were sold, up 6.6 percent over last year when the games also were in Cookeville. The TSSAA Board of Control has granted a two-year extension to Cookeville to host the games through 2012. Next year's games are Dec. 1-3. Childress said he was impressed by the amount of volunteer support for the games in the Cookeville area.
