By Kris Freeman for White House Football
The White House Blue Devils have released the 2018 schedule for the varsity, freshman and middle school seasons.
White House High School (11-1, 6-0) is the defending Region 5-4A Champions and will open the 2018 varsity football season on August 17th at East Robertson. White House defeated East Robertson last season 35-0. In week two, the Blue Devils will travel out of region to Glencliff, then take bye week on August 31st before coming home in week four for the home opener against Hunters Lane on Sept. 7th. White House also swept Glencliff and Hunters Lane last season.
In week five, it’s back on the road and opening Region 5-4A as the White House Blue Devils play at Springfield in the new Yellow Jackets football stadium for the first time. Despite beating Springfield, 16-14, White House exited the playoffs in week two and then Springfield defeated Jackson South Side (among others) to eventually finish as the runner-up in Class 4-A BlueCross Bowl to Greeneville.
Sycamore War Eagles come to White House in week six on Sept. 21st to start a three-game home stand with rivals. While that is a non-region game, the next two weeks feature Portland Panthers and White House Heritage Patriots on the last Friday of September and first Friday of October, respectively.
The longest two road trips of the season are in weeks nine and 10, traveling to Creek Wood on October 12th and then Montgomery Central on October 19th. The season finale welcomes the Blue Devils’ longest rival Greenbrier to White House in week 11 for senior night at Dewey H. Whitson Stadium.
The first round of the playoffs will begin for Class 4-A on the first Friday night in November. All playoff games are at 7 p.m. in the opening four rounds, and the top two seeds in Region 5-4A will earn a home game in the first round.
All White House regular season home games start at 7:30 p.m., but various road games start at 7 p.m.
