Graham football preview: Young players compete for starting roles

Posted: Updated:
We're less than three weeks until the first Friday night of high school football and teams are gearing up for the new season.  


The G-Men are one of those teams trying improve on their 6 and 5 record from a year ago.

With 15 seniors that graduated from the 2013 squad, and only six back this year, the team is young. With few returning starters, many spots are wide open and very competitive.  


That includes the quarterback competition between sophomore Ben Meade and junior Roman Workman both are also solid defenders. Head coach Michael Williams hopes to name that starter after their scrimmage. 


The G-Men's first game is against Bluefield, which is arguably one of the biggest rivalries in the state and possibly the country. 


That game is the first week of high school football on August 29th at Mitchell Stadium in Bluefield which is the home site for both teams.
