GRAPHIC=FFE Welcome everybody to Friday


Football Extra. We put the wraps on
our 23rd season tonight, with the state
final preview edition. And what a
season it's been. Tomorrow, 6 state
champs will be crowned across the
state.

In the next half hour Travis
Wells and Grant Kittelson will stop by
to help assess the chances our local
teams have when it comes to bring home
the gold.

GRAPHIC=AMHERST/LOUISA We start this evening in the


Double-A Division Four ranks, where
Amherst and Louisa will play for all
the marbles.

Travis Wells gets us set for
tomorrow's 4pm kickoff at Liberty
University's Williams Stadium in what
amounts to a home game for the Lancers
who had to hit the road the last two
weeks of the playoffs.

OQ=Friday Football Extra." < (END SOT) appearance in a state title game and


its first since losing to Hampton in
the Triple A Division 5 contest in
1998. Louisa is in the big show for
the first time, which is big news in
Mineral. In fact, the Lions 3 playoff
wins are the first in the 60 year
history of the school's football
program. The history aside, the two
teams have similar approaches and the
same goal.

SCOTT ABELL/AMHERST HEAD COACH:

Lions Coach Mark Fischer brought the
single wing offense with him when he
got the job in 2001, and his team has
rolled to a 12 and oh mark, winning the

Jefferson District for the third
straight year, and its first Region Two
Championship.

ABELL:

The Louisa defense, giving up just 11
points per game, will be severely
tested as the Lancers have been an
offensive juggernaut, scoring 564
points in 12 games, while the Amherst
'd' has been tough in its own right,
allowing but 99 points all season.

ABELL:

Coach Abell is a 1988 grad of Western
Albemarle High School in Crozet, a
Jefferson District rival of Louisa, and
a team that the Lions beat 13 to 10 in
their season opener. Travis Wells,

(END SOT) game win streak into their State Title


Tilt against Richlands on Saturday.

The Win streak started after a 2 and 4
start, but the roots of this process
run much deeper

(WHITE:11:46)

The Wildcat Offense has gotten
much of the focus, and deservedly so,
especially when Quarterback Marcus Mayo
returned from an injury. But the
Defense has done it's part as well.
They scored a Touchdown of their own in
Rockbridge's Shutout State Semi win
over James Monroe. It's one of many
Zero's they've posted in the Win
Streak.

(WHITE BITE:13:56)

(STANDUP: Rockbridge will need a
complete team preformance on Saturday.
Their Opponent Richlands has a zero of
their own it just happens to be in the
loss column for the season. Coach
White is very famliar with the Blue
Tornados he's been watching their games
since his college days.)

(WHITE BITE:15:46)

To prepare for Rich-Lands as well
as the Field Turf that they will play
on at Liberty University on Saturday.
The Wildcats have been practicing on
the Turf at V-M-I's Practice Field.


(WHITE BITE:15:18)

Rockbridge should be used to
different surfaces, they're undefeated
on the road this season. And while the
game will be played at a neutral site.
The Wildcats will be wearing their road
uniforms. In Rockbridge County Grant

Richlands only other state title

was Vaught who brought the Lexington

back in 1988 with the help of Anthony

A great team that will have to
find a way to score on the Blue
Tornado.

For all of the offense Richlands
has produced this season - 624 points
in 13 games - Greg Mance's team is
absolutely nasty on the defensive side
of the ball.

GREG MANCE


Mance aquired that philosophy
honestly during his playing days at

Group Two A State title team that
knocked off Park View Sterling and gave
the Bandana Gang it's first state
title.

the Group A ranks to tomorrow's

The Spartans are back in the

(END SOT) If Giles is to live out its dream


and make it back to back titles on the
brand new field turf suraface at JMU,
the Spartans will have to find a way to
counteract Goochland's superior speed -
plus remember this Goochland team
managed to do something no one around
here has been able to accomplish in
recent memory - completely shutout
Gretna.

STEVE RAGSDALE

If Giles has an advantage it is
it's offense. Coaches know that the

Single Wing is ancient and something
that is stoppable. But more often than
not players who are seeing it for the
first time are dumbfounded and buried
on the scoreboard before they know what

OQ=..EXCEPT FAILURE, BASICALLY." << The talk all week in Gile County
(END SOT) leading up to the State semi-final


matchup with Powell Valley went
something like this - Yeah Region D is
down this year, but Powell Valley is
still Powell Valley.

So much for the talk.

Tanner and the Gile Spartans
turned what is usually a nailbiter into

a complete blowout - winning 49-to-8 as
Tanner rushed for 166 yards and scored
five touchdowns.

BITES

Tanner inherited the
all-important halfback position in the
singel wing when another player of the
week Ricky Cook graduated. Tanner
embraced the role and the pressure that
goes along with it by accounting for 42
touchdowns and nearly 23 hundred yards
of offense in 13 games.

BITES

At six-three it's not a surprise
that Tanner is a huge basketball fan of
not only the game - but his Airness -
who also handled pressure pretty well.
