After scrimmaging one of the toughest teams in Clarksville, the Greenbrier Bobcats took a 27-7loss.

Despite a 20-point difference, the Bobcats put up some great offense against the Northeast defense.

"This was a great scrimmage for us," Greenbrier coach John Elmore said. "It really was. We were able to move the ball. We just turned the wrong way or drop a low snap. A lot of little things we have to take care of."

Greenbrier didn't score until late in the game, just before the junior varsity went in. Despite losing 27-0 at the time, the Bobcats didn't roll over and were able to get a touchdown on the board. The next play, the JV forced a fumble to get the ball back, but weren't able to come up with anything.

The touchdown was scored by junior running back Brandon Chambers, who got a lot of good runs in against Northeast.

Senior captain Andrew Cline started the game at quarterback. While he did not throw the ball the majority of the time, most of his passes were solid.

"Andrew is very capable and has a lot of experience," Elmore said. "Not necessarily at starting quarterback, but he's been starting for us since he was a sophomore and started in basketball since a freshman, so he's very used to game type situations. That helps quite a bit."

Greenbrier will take the field one last time before Week 1 when they face Donelson Christian Academy at jamboree on Friday, August 11.

Their first game of the season is against another Clarksville school, Kenwood, which will be at home.

Elmore said he is very pleased with the way his team has come along since the first day of lifting in the spring semester to two weeks before their first game of the 2017 season.
