Outlook: New coach Grayson Throckmorton says the time to start from scratch at Halifax County is right now. 12 starters return from a 2-8 squad last year that has promise, but needs to learn how to finish a game. Throckmorton looks to bring stability and a new attitude to the Comets this season. Some big pieces are in place, but Halifax will have to gel quickly, with a tough September schedule ahead of them.
