Clinton starts out with a tough one hosting last years 4A runner up now 3A Cape Fear at Dark Horse Stadium Friday.....Cape Fear stat QB had ankle surgery and has yet to take the field for the Colts even if he doesn't play still a tough road for Clinton as Cape Fear from what i heard returns a good portion of that team that went undefeated till the State title lost against Greensboro Dudley...Players to watch Chris Matthews 6 ft 205 pound linebacker is the anchor of their defense 4 year looks like it will be either juniors Gamble or Altman under center and ATH A. Lewis #4 heard some things about him.........For Clinton even at home we are heavy underdogs for the most part despite the apparent absence of their star QB.....For us we come in alil banged up as several starters missed both preseason scrimmages....Line play both on offense and defense will be crucial....i think it will be important in a game like this to try and hit em in the mouth early getting a early lead think get these young guys confidence up....Im sure Cape Fear playing over in Cumberland county is custom to seeing the spread but seeing us come out in it has to throw them off a bit as they probably are expecting straight T ground and pound......as always mental errors pre snap penaltys turnovers will be key.....fatigue playing a bigger School especially in the second half.....prediction wise im always going to go with Clinton i think we jump out to a early lead and with the help of a turnover or two and some good FG kicking by Chandler Perry we hold on and pull this one out 17-14.........lets here it any other thoughts or predictions on the game

If the QB doesn't play for CF, they will not win. If he is healthy, he is a major difference maker and makes that team really good. Their JV team wasn't all that good last year and I know they don't have a QB to fill his shoes. I'd go Clinton at home as well 21-17.

Was going to take Clinton here.  However, if JGV is playing, I'm not so sure now.....
