I don't think Tarboro has had a team as good as the ones they had in their 5 year title run in 2a, but Wallace Rose Hill and James Kennan has been the only thing standing in their way of several 1aa championship appereances the last 4 years, this years Tarboro team seems to be the best they've had since 2012 and if they were in 2a I think it would come down to them and WRH in the eastern final.
Maybe just maybe it isnt gonna be as easy as everyone wants to think it is for Tarboro to win it. I mean heck they won championships in 2a, but have not even been to the championship in 1a. Not throwing shade..but dont be so quick to think teams are gonna bow and give it to them. Who ever comes out of the West will be ready for any team out of the East..especially with WRH out of the way...LOL.

Thanks for all the praise guys...it will be a fight to get it done and the Vikings will give it their best shot. We all know it also takes some luck along the way to win a title. Our offense is machine like and our defense is special. I think the D has given up a little over 300 yards in 4 games and most of that is coming late in the game when we have substituted for the starters. Having said that, I was reminded by one of our coaches that the starters have surrendered 2 TDs this year...he wasnt happy lol. So, as modestly as possible, I do think THS is the team to beat, but I also know there is no perfect team, so they can lose. It will require the other team to play their very best game and for us to have a bad game, but that happens to good teams all the time...thats why we play the games and why it is so much fun.
As far as I am concerned, WRH is the gold standard for football programs in the east. The visit to the Dog Pound was wonderful...the WRH fans were great. I am most assuredly a WRH fan. State-wide, WRH, Shelby, and Reidsville are 3 of the very best programs regardless of classification...how many titles between those 3??? A bunch I know...
