The prime opportunity is there on Friday night for Unaka’s winless football team.
The Rangers travel to Sneedville in facing another bunch which hasn’t won a game in Mountain East Conference foe Hancock County. In fact, Unaka’s lone victory last year was over the Indians.

“It’s one of those weeks where we’re in a lull,” Unaka coach Steve McKinney said before Wednesday’s practice. “We’ve got our tight end (Tyler Carrier) that broke his thumb against Cloudland, and we got beat up a little bit. We didn’t have a very good practice yesterday.
