Appomattox Co. Raiders prepare for long trip to state semifinals
APPOMATTOX CO., Va. (WSET) - Football Friday's playoff action enters the state semifinals this weekend, all the games on Saturday.
One of our area teams still chasing a state title is Appomattox County. The two-time defending state champion, over the past three years, is an incredible 42-and-1. The Raiders have a long 4-and-a-half to 5-hour road trip to Union this Saturday after winning a tough 26-14 road game Friday at Glenvar.
Doug Smith, APPOMATTOX CO. HEAD COACH, said "I think they helped us grow quite a bit, seeing some of the flaws that we need to work on which is a lot. You know we definitely know we can get a lot better in a lot of areas and that's what we're aiming to do this week."
