JV football has added numerous new players to the team. Friday, August 19th was the first time the team played Fluvanna this season in a scrimmage. There were many interceptions and smackdown tackles.

“I could have hustled more,” said Lance Cooper, a 9th grader playing WR/DB (wide receiver/defensive backon the WHS JV team.  “The team worked as individuals, mostly the cornerbacks wasn’t talking and we didn’t seal out gaps.”

Coach Naiper explained , Win or lose the team is always going to be a team. They have to work together in order for it to work. The guys did an outstanding job and a(n) lose dosn’t determine the whole season 

”They was a little big bigger than us. But what I need to do is stop dancing and working a little bit harder. But the team, they was getting blown back on offence,” said Dayvon Young, a 9th grader playing QB/DB (Quarterback/defensive back) on the WHS JV football team.
