U.S. Cellular HWWW trophy a popular FHS photo piece

After enjoying the bedlam of Blue and Gray students swallowing up Bill Clabo Field and chanting “six in a row” in reference to consecutive football wins versus archrival Bearden, Farragut players extended trophy photo ops into a highly-charged locker room.

It was a tag-team rush to be “pictured with the six-foot trophy” as several Admirals used their cell phone cameras to eagerly pop pictures of each other alongside the U.S. Cellular How the West Was Won traveling trophy after a 27-14 victory Friday, Sept. 8.

It marked the program’s fifth straight U.S. Cellular HWWW game win versus BHS and sixth overall, including playoffs.

“I mean it’s amazing, it’s six-feet tall,” senior quarterback Michael Lawrence said about the traveling trophy, adding that it symbolizes “six in a row [including a playoff win], I mean, it’s a perfect ending [to the BHS rivalry] in my senior season.”

Junior defensive back Brandon Hylton said, “This is our house and we kept this [trophy]. We wanted to win, so we’re kings of the west.”

Senior defensive end Jonathan Morrison said the U.S. Cellular trophy symbolizes a huge victory, which “means so much to this team, we all work hard all summer, two-a-days, camps.”

U.S. Cellular’s Calvin Norwood, store manager for the Turkey Creek location, presented the trophy on the field moments after Farragut’s victory was official.

“This is my first experience with this game, and all I can say is this is incredible,” Norwood said. “Especially for all the fans out here on the west side of Knoxville, we have a very strong customer base out here and we’re really proud to be a part of this.

“It’s great, I didn’t know what to expect,” Norwood added. “It was great to see both sides, the Bearden fans came out for it and the Farragut fans were incredible. And as you can see out here, everybody had a great time.”
