Blue Ridge Set to Battle Covenant in Thursday Pigskin Showdown

Posted: Updated:

A great private school football showdown will take place on Thursday as Covenant plays host to Blue Ridge.  Covenant has a record of 3-1 and coming off a 14 point win over Massanutten Military.  Blue Ridge is undefeated at 3-0 after blowing out Northcross by 27 points on Saturday.

Covenant coach Dave Rocco says, " Yeah Blue Ridge is undefeated and they have a lot of talent. And they're big. So its going to be difficult to handle it but I think our players are up for the challenge. I think we're off to a good start but like any football team you've gotta keep improving and you know last week we didn't play very well on defense and I think thats one of the emphasis we have this week."

Covenant running back, Jamie Gaston says, "I'd say its a rivalry, not to the point of STAB but its definitely a big game for us and it'll tell alot about where we are and where we need to be by the end of the year."

Kickoff Thursday is at 4pm at Covenant.
