Pulaski County and Karns will play the Vikings for the first time.
Pulaski is coached by Mark Dixon, who was an all-American offensive lineman at the University of Virginia, played six NFL seasons with the Miami Dolphins, and also served in the World League of American Football and the Canadian Football League.
He went 4-3 in his first season at the helm of Pulaski County when the Cougars lost to George Washington-Danville in the first round of the VHSL Region’s 4D playoffs.
Previously, Dixon won 101 games and a national title in 10 seasons directing Galax Maroon Tide.
While at Galax, he coached road playoff games against Haysi, Honaker, JI Burton, Patrick Henry and George Wythe.
Now he’s set to see a regular season showdown in northeast Tennessee.
“I spoke to our AD, Scott Vest, and we both thought this would be a good challenge,” said Dixon.
