Wave Stop Commandoes in their Tracks


Gallatin held on for a 22-19 win over rival Hendersonvlle tonight. The win puts Gallatin as the second seed in the district tourney. Janario Perry scored on a 29 yard reception and Darian Banks put the other points on the board on a 91 yard kickoff return and a plunge from the two yard line.


Tremain Smith threw for 195 yards and was 14 of 27 in passing attempts. The star of the evening was the defense. The Gallatin defense held Hendersonville to just seven totalyards in the second half, and only one first down.

Gallatin will host Hendersonville this week in the first round of the playoffs. Yes, Hendersonville again. The TSSAA changed their playoff formatt to allow district foes to compete in the first round against each other this year. It will ensure a larger gate and a bigger payout to the TSSAA, and the elimination of one of the better teams in 5A football in the midstate.



Wave Drop Blue Devils



Tremaine Smith passed for 215 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another as the Wave survived a shootout with Lebanon tonight. Anthony Woodard led the team in receiving by catching four passes for 90 yards.

The victory puts Gallatin in a four-way tie atop the district. Everything will shake out this Friday when Gallatin hosts Hendersonville, and Beech hosts Mt. Juliet.




Bucs Survive the Crashing Waves



The Bucs answered three Green Wave scores with touchdowns and recovered two late onside kicks to preserve a 33-25 victory over Green Waves.

The Green Wave dropped to 4-1 in league play, 5-3 overall.



Wave Scares Away The Cats!




Tremaine Smith passed for 130 yards and rushed for 86 yards in the 16-9 win over Wilson Central. In the last 2:53 of the game it came up to the defense and they answered the call!!!!

Wave Buried the Burros


Deidrick House bombards through the Hillsboro Burros for an attempt on a touchdown!!!!


Wave Rally in Fourth


Another one for the record books in the long standing traditional rivalry between the Green Wave and the Mt. Juliet Bears. Last nights game had everything a fan could ask for, turnovers, hard hits, great touchdown runs and catches, and a fourth quarter comeback.

With about five minutes to go in the game, the Wave marched 85 yards to go ahead 33-28. The last drive featured key first down runs by Tremaine Smith, and Maurice Box crossing the alumni stripe from three yards out to give the Wave the lead.

Gallatin will host Hillsboro this Friday night. The homecoming ceremonies commence with the parade at 4:00, and kickoff at 7:00

Tremaine Smith delivers a strike during the Wave's fourth quarter comeback.




Bulldogs Survive Invasion


Despite the great crowd support and the effort by the Green Wave, the Pups of Canton McKinley High School prevailed in the opening contest of 2010. The final score of 32-14 gave the Green Wave team a proper gauge for the rest of the season.

The skill level of McKinley was not to be denied, but the actual game revealed that a few small things can turn into large differences. Gallatin's four turnovers in the game resulted in 18 points from the Pups. This provided a huge shift in momentum. Young teams typically don't rebound from those shifts, and veteran teams usually use them to their advantage.


The Green Wave host Mt. Juliet on Friday night. It will be a big game for both teams as they enter Region play. Hopefully lessons will be learned and the improvment on the little things will result in a change of outcome this week.





Warmup for Canton in the Books


The countdown is just about over. For the past couple of weeks the buzz in Gallatin has been about this years football team and especially the trip this week to Canton to face the McKinley Bulldogs. Everyone is excited, the players are excited, the cheerleaders are excited, the faculty and administration is excited. The coaches however, not so much.

Coach Lassiter is excited to be taking his 2010 Green Wave to Ohio to open the season, its just that he is more anxious about the preparation. All of us want the Wave to do well, but there was unfinished business that needed to be handled on Friday night as the Wave hosted the Blue Devils from White House.

The Wave left little doubt about the summer preparation, as they handled the Blue Devils in their preseason scrimmage 34-0. The Wave warmup is now complete and the focus shifts to the cradle of football, Canton, Ohio.

Canton, known for the home of the NFL Hall of Fame, also has some serious ties to the sport in its beginnings. The first professional football league began in Canton. The Canton Bulldogs played in barnstorm fashion back in the day. Their chief rival was a nearby town named Massillion. This rivalry continues to this day, now at the high school level. The history of the two towns could have their own "Who's Who" in football. A few of the more famous old timers include Paul Brown, Knute Rockne, and Jim Thorpe.

Hey Green Wave! If you are thinking about going, but not sure , GO! Its a once in a lifetime trip that you won't regret. Its also an opportunity to tell the kids about the old-timers that played the game when you grew up. "The Hall" has video of most of its members, and its a great opportunity to show the young ones the work ethic required of them to be great players and great people. The experience of Canton is what many of the Wave have been looking forward to for the past couple of years, and to top it off, There's a game on Saturday night. GO WAVE!



Green Wins in Shortened Contest


Thank you all who attended the Green and Gold Game last night even under the uncertain weather conditions.  The game was hard fought with the Green team pulling out a close 14-10 victory as the game had to be shortened due to the weather.  The Green team scored on its opening drive on a three yard catch by Logan Slagle from Ta Rice after stopping the Gold on its first possesion.  The Gold would then respond as they tallied a Zach Lechner fieldgoal and a Drew Corder touchdown in the second quarter to take a 10-7 halftime lead.  The Green team responded with its own long drive as Anthony Walker and Darin Banks lead the team down field with some big runs.  Banks finished off the drive with a touchdown run around the rightside to put the Green up 14-10.  The game was called before the White could retake the field and the final score stood at 14-10 Green.  The winning Coaching Staff included Head Coach Don Porter and his assistants Coach Bubba Dunn, Greg Harper, and Michael Hennigan.  The Green Wave look forward to building on a good Spring and getting back into the weightroom this Summer and preparing for the 2010 Season.
