Lee High Generals (0-3, 0-1 M7)
When: Friday, September 27 at 7:00 p.m.
Where: The Ridge, Rose Ridge, Va.
Series all time: Series is even 2-2 (Last meeting Ridgeview defeated Lee High 49-7 on September 21, 2018 in Ben Hur, Va.)
To say that the debut season for first year Lee High head coach Alec Haston and his Generals squad has been a struggle would be an understatement.
The Generals have lost all three 2019 contests thus far by an average of 40 points per game. The sledding doesn’t get any easier for the Generals as they head to Dickenson County tonight for a Mountain 7 District contest.
The Generals will take the field high atop the Ridge with an 0-1 Mountain 7 District record, losing 41-7 to Union in week one. The Wolfpack are 2-0 in district play with wins over Wise Central and last week against Gate City.
The General offense averages 11 points per game over their three contests so far. Leading the way for the General offense is quarterback Tanner Laster who has 220 yards passing and 126 yards rushing on the season. Bryce Clark leads the Generals on defense with 13.5 tackles. The General defense have yet to register a sack or interception on the season.
Ridgeview continues to be led on offense by running back Trenton Adkins who has 1,272 yards rushing on the season through four games. Quarterback Nick Phillips had a breakout game last week against Gate City with a 9-14 passing effort and ran for two scores. Adkins also impressed Wolfpack Nation with his defensive prowess a week ago against the Blue Devils with two scintillating interceptions.
While the Generals will be looking for a spark to get their 2019 season in gear, the Wolfpack will look to celebrate Homecoming 2019 with a victory. As always, the Wolfpack Nation should be out in full force tonight for another beautiful night under the Friday night lights in Dickenson County.
I was born a Haysi Tiger but unfortunately succumbed to a broken heart on a cold rainy afternoon in King William, Virginia on December 6, 2014.
However, I was reincarnated as a Wolf, and became a runner of the Ridgeview Wolfpack on August 28, 2015. You now hear me howling most autumn Friday nights high atop Rose Ridge in Dickenson County or anywhere else my Pack of hungry Wolves may be, from Grundy to Falcon Hill or from Ben Hur to Pikeville, Kentucky.
I never wolfed down (pun very intended) a Tiger Taco like Mr. Brady Hess, but I was and still am known to devour a pizza from Pizza Factory on Main Street in Haysi.
I have always wanted to write about sports and now I have the opportunity to thanks to those who have built this wonderful place on the world wide web. Hope y’all enjoy.
