The Creek Wood football team had one more dress rehearsal for the playoff stretch run on Friday night, welcoming the Sycamore War Eagles to Creek Wood Stadium. The Red Hawks outplayed the visitors for most of the night, holding the Sycamore offense in check behind the stellar play of Colton Stewart.

The Red Hawks scored only once, on a passing play from Timmy Randolph to J. J. Higgins, but Sycamore answered back on aRead More →

After beating rival Dickson County by 27 points in Week 1, the Creek Wood football team started out with a thud against Cheatham County on Friday night.

On a perfect night for football, the visitors pitched a shutout for the rest of the first half as both sides traded turnovers and field position. InRead More →

In 2015, Creek Wood looked to have the season-opening rivalry showdown against Dickson County sewed up at home. The Cougars were able to rally back in the waning minutes, with time kept on the field, and broke the hearts of Red Hawk nation. In 2016, behind former head coach turned interim coach Chuck Daniel, Creek Wood took the opener at Dickson. In 2017, former Red Hawk quarterback Houston Thiel made his head coaching debut, and he gave Creek Wood what it had been waiting for–sweet revenge. Creek Wood reeled off a 12-0 lead to open the contest against their in-county rivals, but mistakes led toRead More →

The in county rivalry between Dickson (0-1) and Creek Wood (1-0) once had an obvious gap between “big brother” and “little brother.” On Friday night the Cougars found out that eventually little brother grows up.

That offensive slump paired with Creek Wood’s impressive running game led to a shocking 39-12 loss in the season opener. Creek Wood jumped out early with a four and a half, ten play drive, that covered 65 yards. A blocked extra point gave the Cougars a little momentum before entering their first drive down 6-0.Read More →
