Summary: The Comets haven't started the season but they're already without their starting quarterback. Tyler Stephens broke his foot in a scrimmage against Staunton River. He's expected to be out five weeks. Sophomore Jacob Garrett takes over the QB duties for the time being. Tailback Roland Brandon will be crucial to Halifax's offense. The Comets are rebuilding as they transition from the now extinct Western Valley District and into the Piedmont. Coach Mike Roark expects to see progress this season and a lot of players have already seen a better attitude and intensity in preseason practice.
