Check out Football Preview 2019

Tucked inside this week’s edition of The Kenbridge-Victoria Dispatch is one of our signature special sections that we hope you will check out — a tab dedicated to previewing the seven high school varsity football teams in our coverage area, which includes Central High School and Kenston Forest School.

As The Farmville Herald and The Charlotte Gazette are also part of Farmville Newsmedia LLC, the other teams featured include Buckingham County High School, Cumberland County High School, Prince Edward County High School, Fuqua School and Randolph-Henry High School.

We also have a brief acknowledgment in the back for Hampden-Sydney College’s football team, since we also give coverage to the Tigers.

However, we’ll focus our attention in this space on the Chargers and Kavaliers. Football Preview 2019 will help get you ready for their respective seasons with team stories chock full of insights from their respective head coaches.

As usual, Central Head Coach Will Thomas spoke with candor about the state of his team and communicated his excitement for how big the Central football program has become this year, including the junior varsity squad which feeds the varsity team.

The Chargers surprised a lot of people last year with their tremendous recovery after a slow start, and they look primed to build on that positive momentum this year.

The special section includes a Central team photo and the Chargers’ regular season schedule.

Additionally, at the front of the tab is a feature story highlighting unsung heroes on each of the teams we cover. Be sure to check that out to see who the head coaches from Central and Kenston Forest picked for that recognition on their teams.

The Kavaliers are also represented in the special section with a story, a team photo and a schedule. New Head Coach Joseph Kaiser communicated his optimism for what the Kavs could do this year, and they confirmed it this past Saturday.

Kenston Forest, which is playing eight-man football, started the year earlier than everybody else we cover, hitting the road to face Lawrence Academy in North Carolina on Saturday and returning home with a 55-0 victory.

Stories specifically covering both the Kavs’ season-opening win and previewing Central’s season opener this Friday can be found in the sports section of the paper itself.

But we’d recommend receiving the overview on each team first by checking out Football Preview 2019.
