TeamFYNSports Reporter’s Player of the Week goes to number 12 quarterback Luke Holloway! Holloway is a sophomore at Fannin County High School. Holloway’s improvement week after week contributed to the Rebels securing a home region win against Cherokee Bluff. As a sophomore, Holloway showed leadership as he connected with Chandler Kendall and Jalen Ingram and handed off to Treylyn Owensby and Will Mosley for a combined total of 6 touchdowns. Week after week Holloway seems more confident and much more comfortable as the sophomore Fannin Rebels quarterback. Congratulations, again, to Luke Holloway from TeamFYNSports.
Passing 4/8 for 104 yrds 2 TDs; Rushing 2 Att 24 yrds
FetchYourNews Sports Reporter’s Player of the Week goes to Junior #32 Treylyn Owensby! Owensby had a magnificent game Friday night against the Chestatee War Eagles. Owensby played great offense against the War Eagles. Offensively, Owensby gained give or take 200-yards (official stats not available at time of article). Owensby has brought an aggressive component to Rebels offense each game since the season began. Fetch Your News can’t wait to see what else Owensby brings to the rest of the season! Way to go, Owensby!
After the coin toss, Fannin County High School Rebels received the kick off. The Union County Panthers defense shut the Fannin Rebels offense down immediately and seemed to set the tone for the rest of the game. Rebels didn’t cross the 50-yard line into Panther territory before having to give possession back to the Panthers.
In the Panthers first possession, they made quick work of crossing the 50-yard line into Rebel territory. The Panthers were able to move the ball for a new first down. It didn’t take long for the Panthers to be up 14-0 over the Rebels in the first quarter.
Panthers defense was determined to hold their lead by not allowing the Rebels offense into Panther territory. No matter what moves the Rebels made, the Panthers defense was there to shut it down.
With only seconds remaining in the first half, the Rebels had possession deep in Panther territory. The Rebels had the Panthers end zone in sight. #12 Luke Holloway’s pass was intercepted and ran all the way back for a Panther touchdown, smashing whatever hopes the Rebels had of getting a touchdown.
At the end of the first half, the Panthers had found themselves in the Rebels paint, lighting up the scoreboard and leaving Rebels in the dust 35-0. The Rebels may have felt a little stunned by Panthers fast-paced offense and shut-down defense.
The Panthers opened on offense in the second half, nothing had changed as Panthers lit up the scoreboard when a Panther ran downfield into Rebels end zone as they lit up the scoreboard once again. Panther’s increased their lead 42-0.
Unfortunately, Rebels #47 Tate Heaton, was ejected from the game due to a personal foul for what seemed to be shoving a Panther’s player after the touchdown. According to GHSA rules, a player ejected from a game is not allowed to play the following game. So, it’s possible that Heaton will not be playing in Fridays game against Chestatee High School.
With a 42-0 lead in the third quarter, this gave Coach Allison a perfect opportunity to rotate players in the game. After the Panthers made substitutions, the Rebels offense was able to move the ball into Panther territory.
With each possession, the Rebels seemed to get closer to Panthers end zone. It was in the last few seconds of the 3rd quarter, that the Rebels set themselves up for a potential touchdown. The Rebels ended the 3rd quarter on Panthers 1-yard line.
The first play of the 4th quarter, the Rebels finally found the Panthers end zone and on the scoreboard with the extra point, changing the score 42-7. The Panthers answered the Rebels with a touchdown and the extra point making it 49-7.
A Rebel highlight, late in the game, Rebels #15, Chandler Kendall, got an interception and about a 15-yard gain, which gave the Rebels the ball. In the last 4 minutes of the game, both Panthers and Rebels opted to run a ground game. The game ended with the Panthers winning 49-7 on their home turf.
The Fannin Rebels will pick up next weeks game at 7:30 at home against Chestatee High School. Come out to support our Rebels as they play their 4th game of the season. Let’s go Rebels!

The 2015 high school basketball season is officially underway as Fannin High School hosted this years Tip-Off Tournament. Gilmer, Pickens and Copper Basin are showcased each year which alternates between Fannin and Gilmer schools. Gilmer Ladycats were unscathed in this years tournament going 3-0 and earning first place. Pickens Nettes finished runner-ups. Fannin, Gilmer and Pickens all tied with a 2-1 record to share first place.
Hosts Fannin Rebels and Lady Rebels had a good showing for both teams. We will start with the Lady Rebels. A young team with just a couple seniors this year, they played pretty good ball. The Ladycats were the only team to really take he game by a large margin, but Coach Pass took the chance to play some of the younger players to get them extra experience. Turns out they are pretty good. Physical, strong and not shy about driving the lane and banging elbows when needed. This is sure to be a huge learning season for Coach Pass and her girls, but we will see the rewards in future years.
The Fannin Rebels on the other hand are outstanding. Super aggressive and coupled with high percentage shooters like Clay Ware, Logan Holt and Adam Ingram this years team is sure to do well. Clay Ware shot 17-3PT shots in the three days, 9 just in one game alone. The team had a total of 36 from outside the arc. A fast paced highly aggressive team that gets on you quick and don’t let up. 58 points scored in the first period,two games with 20+, allowing only 21 first quarter points. The Rebels start region play Dec. 4 at Franklin. The next match up is at home in non-region play against Murphy, NC.
The Ladycats looked like the team of last year, even with the loss of Bailey Charles, that never missed a beat. Aggressive play and experience will be a huge advantage in region play as they get started on December 1, against NW. Whitfield at home. Look for the Ladycats to have a great year.
The Gilmer Bobcats are a fierce competitive team with a decent bench. With a few returning starters from last year, the Bobcats look to have a great season. They start their region play at home against NW. Whitfield on Dec. 1.
Copper Basin was the surprise team in this year tournament. With a small team and fewer veteran players, Tanner Wilcox and Tyler Limburg led the Cougars in two very close games against Gilmer and Pickens. The Cougars have all the talent they need to make a great run this year in TSSSA Region play. Coach Johnson said after the Fannin game that that was probably going be the hardest game of the season for his Cougars. The Lady Cougars were also a huge surprise after a hectic last season. The loss of their coach mid-season and just not being coached properly the Lady Cougars bounced back this year showing they can compete in their region this year and that they are fighters and will not give up.
