Heritage chasing first state title since 2002
LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) - The 13-and-1 Heritage Pioneers try and win their first state title since 2002 when they face 10-and-4 Hopewell Saturday at noon in Williamsburg.
The Pioneers offense has been unstoppable in the playoffs, AVERAGING right at 59 points a game.
The Heritage defense will have to shut down some Hopewell weapons, including a running back who's committed to Indiana and a quarterback/defensive back headed to William & Mary.
Brad Bradley, HERITAGE HEAD COACH (PIONEERS 13-1), said "If I had to sum up Hopewell in a couple of words it would be athletic, explosive and physical. Their defense gets after it, I think they're giving up less than 13 points a game right now. They're 9-and-4 but their four losses, three out of their four losses came to really good football teams."
Elijah Davis, HERITAGE SENIOR RUNNING BACK, said "We're right on the edge. We can win or go home so just being able just to play for it feels great. We want to come out with a win 'cause nobody remembers the loser, so."
Keonte Rose, HERITAGE SENIOR CENTER, said "He shocks me doing half the things that he does while I'm blocking for him, I see him run over three or four people at a time. So he's talented, blessed."
