The prep football season is just a few days away. The Swain County Maroon Devils hope tradition trumps inexperience in 2013. Swain has won 8 state titles but this year field a young squad, with only 5 starters returning.
Mountain Heritage has a lot of experience returning--10 starters on each side of the ball come back for the 2013 season. The Cougars hope that experience and more toughness will help improve a defense which gave up 40 points a game and they can improve on a 4-7 record.
UNCA gets a basketball committment from one of the mountains top forwards as Christ School's Alec Wnuk says he will play collegiately for the Bulldogs.
