Class "AA" championship pits tradition against tenured staff
When the Class "AA" championship game kicks off Friday night at 7 p.m. at Wheeling Island Stadium, it will feature a Fairmont Sr. football program stemming back to the early 1900s. Bluefield, on the other hand, has 10 total state championships between both Class "AAA" and "AA" levels, and a coach who's been around the program his entire life.
This year both teams fully expect to walk away trophy in hand, but also understand the tough challenge in front of their teams.
We'll have all the highlights and reaction following the game on our final edition of Friday Night Football Extra on WCHS TV8 at 11:10 p.m.
