    Woodrow Wilson beats Greenbrier East, 42-39

    The Woodrow Wilson Flying Eagles Football team took on school rival, Greenbrier East Spartans Friday, Sept. 1, resulting in a victory. The football team was well prepared for this moment being led by Coach Chad Sarrett. Preparations for this game begin early with a team meal together, the physical prep of bracing and wrapping, warmups, and a final team meeting with prayer before the clock starts.

    The stands were packed with a total of roughly 1,850 tickets sold. Coach Sarrett provided the traditional “BEAT EAST” t-shirt sales, with roughly 400 shirts sold. Elijah Redfern began the game off well with a one of his three touchdowns during the first quarter. Following Redfern’s first touchdown, Elijah Waller made a 43-yard run. Quarterback Devin Richardson made a 40- yard pass to Elijah Redfern to score his second touchdown of the first quarter. The touchdowns continued through the second quarter when Elijah Waller had a 81-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. MJ Staples also scored a touchdown after a 65-yard kickoff return. The game ended with another win for Woodrow Wilson with the score of 42-39. Woodrow has won the rivalry game against Greenbrier East the last two years back-to-back. This season’s team has averaged more rushes and passes in comparison with the East game last year.

    The next game hosted at Woodrow Wilson High School is Sept. 22 against Lincoln County High School.
