Nansemond River High went all dramatic on us in the Class 5A regional. They survived the excitement to show up in the state semifinal this Saturday at Highland Springs.

In that regional final, the Warriors edged Salem in overtime. Certainly momentum is on their side. Five weeks ago they were sitting at (4-4). A change in the offense to the old fashion Wing T, has gotten a lot more skill players involved and made all the difference.

Nansemond River will have to be at their best this Saturday as Highland Springs is a two-time defending state champion.
