The Roadrunners are now 5-3 overall and undefeated in the region after an impressive win against Union County and a (literally) sloppy muddy victory against once undefeated Gatlinburg-Pittman.

This week the Roadrunners will play host to the Panthers from Pigeon Forge who come in looking to rough up the Roadrunners. They are being carried by the legs of Chase Travis who leads the area in rushing with over 1300 yards in eight games. The Roadrunners look to have another strong performance and continue on as the playoff draw near.

Fans, we are asking YOU to support the Roadrunners by wearing RED!!! It's our first annual Red Out, which means it's our goal to have totally red stands. Wear red jackets, beanies, shirts, whatever you have wear it!!! Spread the word and we look to see you Friday Night on the Hill for Homecoming and the Red Out!

Roadrunners Run Through Hornets

The Roadrunners knocked off the Carter Hornets friday night 32-9. At halftime (and after an hour lightning delay) the Roadrunners trailed 9-0. But on the first play from scrimmage in the second half Curtis King broke a long run down the sideline for the first Roadrunner touchdown. And from that point on, the Roadrunners turned it on and were not to be scored on again. AE scored 32 unanswered points and if it were not for silly penalties the score would have been worse.

The Roadrunners rushed for over 400 yards. 20 carries and 246 of those yards were by sophomore sensation Curtis King.
"He's figured out what were trying to do, and our offensive line really found themselves tonight." Said Head Coach Kwayu Graham of King and Company.

It looks as if the Roadrunners not only have a stellar steel curtain esque defense but they also are beginning to look like a high scoring offense. And with 5 more regular season games to go it looks like the Roadrunners are peaking at just the right time. So fans, come out this Friday night and support YOUR AE Roadrunners as they take on Chattanooga Brainerd at 7:30 on the hill. There will be a pre-game carnival for kids on the baseball field starting at 6 and stick around for the always exciting battle of the bands after the game.

3 More Points

After a tough 28 - 30 loss last friday night, the Roadrunners are back at it this week as they travel to Carter to begin region play. The Roadrunners are 1 - 0 in the region. The region win came over arch rival Fulton.

Last week the Roadrunners offense had a field day against top ranked Catholic. They rushed for nearly 300 yards total, and the anchor of their running game was Sophomore RB Curtis King who had over 140 yards rushing and averaged 10 yards per carry.

The Roadrunners are a mere 3 points away from perfection. Many people did not give them a chance against any of the teams they have played thus far, but with the toughest schedule in the state, the Roadrunners are looking to make a statement to everyone. Do not count them out and look for big things throughout region play and into the playoffs.
And make sure you come out to Carter Friday night to watch YOUR Austin-East Roadrunners.
