Pittsboro, NC - It may still be hot outside but it is time to start thinking about fall’s greatest pastime - FOOTBALL!

Northwood High School plays host to half a dozen teams, on Friday, August 12, 2005, 6:00 p.m., for a pad-poppin' Jamboree. It is a controlled scrimmage with each team having a set number of plays on offense and defense. There will be no "official" score, but rest assured the players will be keeping tabs on which teams enter the endzone most often, and who gets the most notches on their belts for radical hits. It will be the very first time this year they get to beat on someone who is not on their team.

Head football coach Bill Hall is excited about this year's team. "We are fortunate. We are loaded with Seniors and guys that have had real experience on the field. We have decent speed and size, but as usual a lot of our guys have come in out of shape. I have a coaching staff that will get these guys in shape." (More on this in our upcoming Pigskin Preview issue)

Northwood has invited North Moore, Union Pines, SE Guilford, Durham Jor-dan, Overhills, and Fairmont. Please come out and support the locals.
