Placeholder Image
The 2011 Warren County Middle School football season was a memorable one for the Pioneers.Warren County went into the season defending the Central Tennessee Conference title and wound up winning seven games, the second-highest total in school history.The 7-3 Pioneers finished second in conference play, won two postseason games and saw their coach set the school record for wins in a career.Coach Greg Cotten, who has won 17 games in four seasons at Warren County Middle School, spoke highly of a group which has helped turn around the entire Pioneer program.“We had 38 eighth-graders on this team and most have been with me for three years,” said Cotten. “We’ve accomplished a lot and changed the complexion of our program with their help.”Coach Cotten and his staff honored several members of the squad for their contributions to a seven-win season.The biggest honor was bestowed on Darius Wright, a do-it-all player for coach Cotten. Wright was named the team MVP. Wright lined up at tailback, was the last line of defense at safety and changed games as a punt and kick returner.Wright’s biggest game came in the season opener against Lancaster Christian.
