“It’s a big school, they are physical and if you make mistakes they’ll make you pay,” TCHS coach Blake Satterfield said of Portland. “I am looking forward to the opportunity to play Portland. That goes back to an old rivalry even when I played and hopefully we can keep them on the schedule in the future.”
Last year the Jackets scored 23 unanswered points in the second half to cage the Panthers 37-7 in a driving rainstorm in Portland.
