Region D Football
I had some time off work yesterday and was able to attend the Region D Division 1 and 2 football games at UVA Wise. Wise County's Powell Valley defeated Dickenson's Clintwood 27 - 7. They move on to play powerhouse Giles County next week.
In the next game Norton's J I Burton Raiders defeated Appalachia 62 - 22. The Raiders will face Rural Retreat next week at UVA Wise. The two game event was sponsored in part by Alpha Natural Resources. UVA Wise has one hell of a facility, as you can see from the pics. The crowd was huge and it was great to hang with some of my high school buddies and talk football all day.
My picks - Giles beats Powell Valley. J I Burton over Rural Retreat.
