And Finally…the Hogoheegee

We finish up the preseason roundup with the tiny little Hogoheegee District in far Southwest Virginia.  Next year, the league will expand but for now it remains a four team league with two very good teams, and two very average teams

Chilhowie Warriors (Class 1; Region 1D)

2017 Record:  11 – 4 overall; 3 – 0 Hogoheegee District

Started the year 3-3 and then just started mowing people down winning 8 in a row until they were beaten by Riverheads in the Class 1 State Championship Game.  The entire team is back from last year including all the important parts.  The question is how do they handle success.
