  • Atwell hopes to field freshman...

    Friday 25 Tell City football players signed letters of intent to continue their careers at the next level.

    You’re right, but these were eighth grade players signing letters pledging to new Tell City varsity coach Travis Atwell that they will continue to play football next year.

    “I’m trying to get them to stick with football between middle school and high school because that’s where we’re losing them,” said Atwell.

    Flynn finished the season with a 12-5 record and advanced to the semistate despite a recurring shoulder injury.

    In the classroom he has compiled a 3.98 GPA and is ranked third in his class. He scored a 2060 on the SAT.
