Leap of faith lands Korie Jesse at Central

D.J. Campbell, a 280-pound junior fullback/linebacker, raced untouched for a 28-yard touchdown with 3 minutes, 26 seconds left in the first quarter. That made the score 19-0. After Fulton’s first three-and-out early in the second quarter, coach Rob Black inserted Xavier Hawkins for the wildcat package on the Falcons’ next series. First play: 87-yard touchdown run by Hawkins. Smith later hit Hawkins for 33-yard TD pass with 8 seconds left in the half for a 32-0 halftime lead.

It was a natural move. Jesse grew up playing soccer in Alliance, Ohio, played in high school, and played at Heidelberg College in Tiffin, Ohio, an NCAA Division III program. “Being she was a guidance counselor, I was able to see how she reached out to the girls,” Wise said. “It was good to see how she developed a relationship and how she coached the girls.” When Wise was promoted to assistant principal at Central this year, he decided to stop coaching the girls’ soccer team (he still coaches boys soccer). Wise told Jesse she should apply for the job. “Russ gave me the encouragement that this was the right move for me,” Jesse said.

Protesters mock Knox sheriff’s ‘cordwood’ comment A Emma Ellis-Cosigua, center, and her 4-year-old grandson, Julian Aponte, left, attend a rally at Market Square on Thursday protesting Knox County Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones’ pledge to stack undocumented immigrants “like cordwood” in jail. (Hayes Hickman/News Sentinel.) Protesters lampooned Knox County Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones’ threat to stack undocumented immigrants “like cordwood” in jail as they lay plank-straight and shoulder to shoulder across the concrete at Market Square on Thursday. They were adamant, though, that there was nothing funny about the statement Jones had released a day earlier in response to word that his application to the controversial 287(g) federal immigration enforcement program had been denied. “It was nauseating in a way. I just couldn’t believe that someone who has authority … who’s supposed to be a leader, would make such comments about humans,” said Emma Ellis-Cosigua, who was among about 100 people who marched through downtown Knoxville to the City County Building, many carrying wooden sticks and logs.
