On Friday, November 14, Livingston Academy hosted Hixson in the 2nd Round of the TSSAA playoffs. The game was a rematch or a 34-39 LA loss earlier in the season. LA was victorious in overtime, defeating Hixson 21-20 after the Hixson kicker missed the point after touchdown kick. Dylan Linder scored all 3 touchdowns for LA and set a new single season TD record with 31 total TDs. Peter Hollars tied the single season interception record with his 9th interception of the season. The win over Hixson was LA's 11th win of the 2014 season. This is only the 3rd time in LA football history that a team has won 11 games. The 2004 and 2012 teams are the other LA teams to win 11 games in a season. Livingston Academy (11-1) will travel to Loudon (12-0) on Friday, November 21, to play in the 3rd round of the TSSAA playoffs. This will be the 2nd time in 3 years that LA has made the 3rd Round.
