Halifax County - Today's Football Friday Preview takes us to Halifax County.
Last year, the Blue Comets struggled to a 2-and-8 final record and since then changes have been made with the coaching staff.
Mike Roark steps in as new head coach for the Blue Comets this season. Roark and the players are excited about the chance to turn around the Halifax program and rebuild its gridiron reputation.
Mike Roark, Halifax Head Coach, said "No more 2-and-8. No more being peoples' homecoming games. No more being peoples' we want to schedule Halifax for an easy win. We are not going to do that any more. You're gonna come schedule a game, you know, I have heard it before and I love it. You respect everyone, you fear noone."
Alonzo Bennett, Running Back/Cornerback, said "We want to come out strong, beginning in the first game and ending in the last game. So all four quarters would mean a lot to us if we come out strong all four quarters."
Chris Baisch, Offensive/Defensive Lineman, said "I've been on varsity for three years and we haven't won more than two games each season. And to have a winning season would be amazing."
