Whitwell Tigers get the bling


WHITWELL, Tenn. (WDEF) — The undefeated Whitwell Tigers finally has the bling to show for their historic accomplishments last fall.

Red stones represent each win the team had this season. 7 flanking each side of the fat ring — and one very special one in the middle signifying the state championship.

The seniors helped design the ring. However, they found a little surprise from Coach Randall Boldin on the inside.

“He actually left us a little thing on the inside of it. It says, ‘don’t forget how hard you worked to earn this,’ and it’s by coach Boldin so he left us a little surprise in there,” Quarterback Warner Ashworth said. “This is a very prideful town, a lot of small town people, and just to have that, to be able to say we’re the 2018 state champions feels good.”
