WHITMIRE — In their first game of the season, the Whitmire High School Wolverines will take on the Wagener-Salley War Eagles. The Wolverines currently lead the series against the War Eagles 7-2. The Wolverines defeated the War Eagles 30-8 in 2015.
The War Eagles use a triple option offense, which is based on the option run, but uses three players who may run with the ball instead of the two that are used in the standard option run.
Before their game against the War Eagles last year the Wolverines focused on defensive responsibilities, and worked to get more effort from their tight ends on their run plays.
Tonight’s home game kicks off at 7:30 p.m.
