|New Woodberry Forest football coach http://www.firestormkennel.com/arian-foster-jersey-c-1_22.html Scott Braswell’s first season on the sideline will feature a revamped non-Prep League schedule.
Powerhouse programs Bishop McNamara (Md.), Bullis (Md.), Pinecrest (N.C.) and Avalon (Md.) are all gone, but the Tigers can expect a test in their season opener on Sept. 2 at home against Charlotte Latin School.
After leading the Hawks to a 12-0 record and the 2016 North Carolina Independent School Division I state championship, longtime head coach Larry McNulty announced in February that 2017 will be his final season.
McNulty has run the sideline at Charlotte Latin since 1985, leading the Hawks to 11 state titles and coaching three NFL players, including former Virginia standout Chris Canty. Brenton Bersin, a 2008 graduate, is on the Panthers’ roster and Ross Cockrell (2009) is with the Steelers.
Other schedule additions: Bishop O’Connell (Sept. 9), which went 5-5 last season and beat Fork Union, 19-6… Paul VI (Sept. 30), which went 1-9 in 2016 and lost to FUMA, 28-14, and ended the season with a 40-3 loss to Bishop O’Connell.
Woodberry has an open date on Sept. 23, which http://www.armacan.com/stephen-curry-jersey-c-1_41.html athletic director Matt Blundin is working to fill.
Blue Ridge, STAB won’t meet in 2017
There is a notable absence on the Barons’ 2017 schedule. Blue Ridge and St. Anne’s-Belfield will not meet on the football field for the first time since at least 2005.
Last season’s meeting was halted in the third quarter due to a lack of healthy players on STAB’s sideline.
Sept. 28 will feature a VISAA Division II state championship rematch as Blue Ridge hits the road to face North Cross in Roanoke.
The Barons dropped a regular-season game, 42-34, last season in Roanoke before running away from North Cross, 41-14, in the state finals.
Saints set for 8-man games
St. Anne’s-Belfield will take the field at Michael Oher Authentic Jersey home on Sept. 15 against Greenbrier Christian for the first of its three 8-man football games scheduled for this season.
STAB announced the move in February after struggling through a 3-9 season with fewer than 30 players on the roster.
The Saints’ 8-man team will travel to Hampton Roads on Oct. 13 and host the Navigators on Oct. 27.
