Over in the Bluff City the games get tougher as the season moves on.
District 16AAA powerhouse Melrose welcomes longtime rival Mitchell for a game of early season power rights.
Melrose is young but dominant featuring Adonis Thomas (Melrose), "Mighty" Chris Jones (Melrose) and Nathan Rucker (Melrose). Depth and relentless effort spark the Melrose effort.
On the other side two of the city's finest backcourt men hope to handle the all out defensive assulat that will be applied by the big boys of Melrose. Mardracus Wade (Mitchell) and Russell Hill (Mitchell) are more than capable of handling the adversity and making this a ballgame.
We shall see.
