2013 Dinwiddie Generals: Destination Lynchburg

On December 14, 2013, the Dinwiddie Generals would like to be far from home. One hundred and one miles from home to be exact. Williams Stadium, nestled on the Liberty University campus in Lynchburg, VA, serves as the backdrop for a story yet to be written. Liberty University and Williams Stadium will host the Virginia High School League (VHSL) Class 4A Championship game and Dinwiddie expects to represent the Southern region against the Northern region opponent. In his characteristic confident but humble demeanor, Coach Billy Mills believes his team should be playing for the VHSL Division 4A Title. “Everyone in our program expects to be playing in Lynchburg in December,” says coach Mills.

Scott Picks Tigers

Gloucester Athlete James Scott has grown into a role of punisher with the football in his hands. His Dukes’ team has been undermanned, but he’s still been the guy you didn’t want to see carrying the ball. He’s only a year away from taking his game to the college level, and he’s now decided where he’s going. He’ll have to adapt to playing on the defensive side of the ball, but everything else lined up. Now he can focus on finishing his high school career.

Presidents On The Comeback Trail

The Wilson Presidents have had a tough time recently. Coach Curtis Williams inherited a program that was downtrodden, but with a rich history. In Williams’ first season as head coach, he guided the team to a 4-6 record. That was the best that the team had seen since 2004. In the last two seasons, the Presidents have been winless. They’re young again in 2013, but the coach is confident that the program is headed in the right direction.

Bay Rivers Schedule Preview

As we say farewell to the old district alignments, we’re going to review the football schedules by the old groupings one more time. There will be no more All-District team. No District Championships. The heady days of the free wheelin’ Bay Rivers District won’t be forgotten. The rivalries between the teams can’t be forgotten. While Bruton drops to Division 2, and New Kent and Smithfield remain far removed from everyone geographically, fans are going to miss seeing these teams play each other on a weekly basis. You have two years (in football) to say goodbye.

Green Run Starts Anew, Literally

The Jeff McGowan regime at Green Run has begun, but don’t take McGowan for a first time coach. He’s been through this before. Jeff played his college ball at Appalachian State, and he’s coached in the Beach District, most recently at Kempsville. After a few years away from the high school game, McGowan is renewed and he’s found Green Run to be his opportunity to begin again. That new start began officially on Thursday with open try outs for everyone. Instead of meeting with resistance, he’s been met with enthusiasm, especially from the players who held a spot on last year’s 2-8 team.

Bruins Prep For The Next Step

The Western Branch Bruins took a break from their losing ways and with the help of first year coach Greg Gibson, made it to the playoffs and beat Bethel in the first round. The season that the Bruins had surprised many and shocked the Southeastern District. With this being said, the Bruins are going to be held to a higher standard this year. People know that Western Branch is going to be good and opponents will play them tougher than ever. The graduation of CJ Thomas has left an empty spot at quarterback and more importantly, the graduation of Southeastern District MVP Josh Marriner has left a huge hole to fill at running back. Bruins fans, do not fret. Coach Gibson has a plan.
