Altavista - If you're still practicing on Thanksgiving morning, you've done a lot of things right. The Altavista Colonels were out Thursday morning getting in a workout for Friday night's home game against Franklin, a physical team with plenty of speed. Altavista is hoping to even the score with Franklin. LAST YEAR in this same round of the playoffs, the Colonels had to make the four-hour trip to Franklin and the Broncos ended their season, roughing up Altavista 41-11.
Juan Thornhill, COLONELS JUNIOR QUARTERBACK/DEF. BACK, said "They gave us a good whooping 41-11, I'll always remember that game. And I'm ready to play."
