North Cross vs Fork Union

Huddle Up

     This Saturday‚Äôs contest between Woodberry Forest and North Cross is a first ever for the two schools. Woodberry plays in the Independent League’s largest division just above the Raiders and that is most evident in their roster sizes. The Tigers have around 50 kids on their roster while North Cross is closer to 20.
     Talentwise, Woodberry returns three, 2nd team Division 1, all staters in QB 2 Ben Locklear, LB 6 Jianni Woodson-Brooks and DB 9 Caleb Hodges. North Cross has three  2019 first team all staters in QB 9 Gabe Zappia, WR/LB 3 James Jackson, and DB 11 Mehki HInes. Second team all state Raiders were OL 65 Graham Eliades, WR/DB/KR 1 Ian Cann, LB/WR 21 Michael Mack, and LB/RB 12 Carlton Ward. The Raiders are in Division 2.
     Woodberry has a size advantage across their line fronts at most positions, but offensively the Raiders like to play in space most of the time. This contrast in styles should make for a interesting matchup. Game time is 1pm this Saturday, October 24th at Willis Field on the North Cross campus in Roanoke.
