  • Scrimmage with Rowan County ends in a draw

    Playing from the 40 yard line in, on half the field, the full contact scrimmage with Rowan County ended in pretty much a draw Friday night. 

    Coach Mark Carroll wasn’t sure if the score was 3-2 or 3-3 touchdowns, but came away knowing that there were still some parts of the game that needed work. 

    “I was pretty happy with the offense overall,” said Carroll.  “We still need to tackle better on defense.”
