CHURCH HILL – Cherokee and Volunteer alumni will join up for the second year as the Hawkins County Headhunters to play in an alumni football game set for this Saturday (June 1) at 7 p.m. at Volunteer High School.

“The 2nd Annual Battle for Clinch Mountain” will feature the Hawkins County Headhunters, the combination of the Volunteer and Cherokee alumni, versus Grainger County alumni.

Cherokee and Volunteer played each other in past editions of the alumni game until joining together to play Grainger County in last year’s game.
