Appomattox Co. Football one victory away from a third-straight state title
APPOMATTOX CO. , Va. (WSET) - The season finale of Football Friday is this Friday night at 11:15.
We'll preview the 3 area teams playing for a title, including the Appomattox Raiders, who go for a three-peat Saturday in Salem.
Coach Doug Smith's squad has been through the fire recently. After a tight road win 2 weeks ago over Glenvar, Appomattox built up a 20-nothing halftime lead at Union last Saturday, then hung on for the 23-20 win.
Despite the slim margins of victory, Smith says it's making his players stronger for Saturday's title game. "This hasn't been an easy year for these guys." Smith said. "They worked really hard for every win that they've gotten. It definitely build some character, it definitely builds discipline to teach them to not lay down, to not give up, and not to start taking it easy."
