Altavista - Today's high school Team of the Week is Altavista Colonels football. Altavista, number 8 in this week's Top 13, improved to 6-and-1 on the season, 3-and-0 in the Dogwood District with a come-from-behind win Friday at Chatham. The Colonels trailed 21-14 entering the final period, but outscored the Cavaliers 14-0 over the final 12 minutes to win and retain a share of first in the Dogwood.
Mike Scharnus, ALTAVISTA HEAD COACH, said "We'd been moving the ball the whole second half so we just pretty much stayed with what we were doing and the kids did a great job executing and we hung in there against a good Chatham team. It's a big win for us, we were down at halftime, I think it was the first time this year we've been down. It was a huge win for us, on the road."
