MAX MEADOWS – Coming off of their first victory of the season Fort Chiswell will play host to a familiar foe, the Chilhowie Warriors this Friday evening.

The Warriors (2-1) on the season have wins over Marion and they beat Abingdon 7-0 last Friday. The lone loss
came by way of Grayson County, score 40-7.

The two schools faced each other twice last season with the Warriors coming out on top in both contests, the second match-up coming in the playoffs. Chilhowie lost most of their lineman, but on offense two names still remain, seniors Aaron Conley a 5′ 10” 170 lbs., and Brett Johnson 5′ 10” 180lbs., will still carry the bulk of the offense.

“Chilhowie will run the Wishbone and Power I formations. They will not throw very much at all,“ coach Steve James of the Pioneers said. He continued, “Defensively they will show you a four and five man front.”

“Their secondary will play both man and zone, they like to mix it up on defense . They are a very good football team and we must play better and be physical.”

Fort Chiswell’s probable starters will be Coleman Thomas at center, Austin Widelo and Justice Houston at guards. Tackles are Josh Gleason and Dyllon Padgett. Quarterback will be Cory Mabry with Daniel Hamm and Ray Rodriguez as running backs. Tight end is Ken Govin, wide receivers are Corey Gravely and Desmond

Probables on defense are tackles Justice Houstin, James King and Greg Pestory. Starting as ends are Desmond Perry and Daniel Eversole. Linebackers will be Coleman
Thomas and Ken Govin.

The secondary will consist of Corey Gravely, Trey Jackson, Daniel Hamm and Ray Rodriguez.  Kick off is slated for 7:30.
