After making the long trek to play Washington-Wilkes last Friday, the Banks County High School football team will be able to compete in the friendly confines of home this week.
Riverside Military Academy is a program which also has a winning tradition. The Eagles, who are coming off a 21-20 victory over Class AAA Elbert County last Friday, also present a different kind of challenge for the Leopards and other members of Region 8-AA.
“They have kids from all over the country,” said BCHS coach Blair Armstrong. “When you look at their roster it’s like looking at a roster for a college team. I realize not all of their kids go there to play college football, but some probably do.”
