Appomattox going for rare football 3-peat Saturday
SALEM, Va. (WSET) - Only six teams in Virginia High School League history have won three state titles in a row dating back to the mid-1920's.
Two area teams have a chance to pull off that rare feat this Saturday, Salem and Appomattox.
The 13-and-1 Raiders take on 13-and-1 Robert E. Lee-Staunton at Salem Stadium at 4:30.
Doug Smith, APPOMATTOX CO. HEAD COACH (RAIDERS 13-1), said "Our kids know that we've got to play a football game without many mistakes because the team that makes the most mistakes might be, might be dropping."
