Preparation continues for Tri-County football teams

The "tour" of the Tri-County football schools' preseason practices is complete.

The Dispatch recently visited each of the four football schools in the coverage area, meeting with coaches and players for insight on the upcoming seasons.

At Northern Vance, the Vikings have had enough losing (21 straight) and there seems to be a new buzz around the program.

Northern's 3-A Big Eight Conference rival Webb doesn't have the numbers it is accustomed to, but expectations are still high in Oxford.

And in the 2-A Northern Carolina Conference, Warren County and Southern Vance each have some rebuilding to do.

Northern and Warren County each will participate in Southern's Pigskin Jamboree Saturday, Aug. 16.

Each school starts the regular season Friday, Aug. 22 except for the Eagles, who open a week later at Northern.
