Unbalanced road ahead for Rockets
July 24, 2011Person High School
The Person Rocket football team, in its second season under head coach Lou Geary, will face an unbalanced schedule, at least in terrms of location, in 2011. The regular season begins with an endowment game against the Orange High School Panthers Friday night, August 19, at Orange (scheduled for 7:30pm kickoff). The Rockets will have to get used to life on the road.
They play four of their first five contests and five of thier first seven away from the friendly confines of Rocket Stadium, including twice crossing the Virginia border to take on George Washington and Halifax in non-conference battles. In fact, Person has just four home games this season, the first of those being a rare Thursday night clash against annual non-conference rival Oxford Webb on August 25.
