Friday night, Anderson County showed there is considerable talent listed on the roster of the 2012 football team.
The Bearcats also showed they are not exactly the same group that was playing for a state championship last December. But they started their journey the same way, with a 41-34 loss to Bryan Station.
The Defenders got the last word in a game that featured nearly 900 yards of offense and four lead changes. Quarterback Ora Johnson, who had thrown for five touchdowns, broke the Bearcats' hearts with a 5-yard scoring run with 42 seconds to play.
