At 7 PM tonight, Metrolina Christian will kick off their season against High Point Christian Academy in High Point, North Carolina.
It will be the first high school game for a Union County school since Weddington's 3AA State title win back December 14, 2019, and the first time back for Metrolina since their NCISAA championship loss to Providence Day on November 16.
After a state shutdown in early spring due to Covid-19, football in the fall seemed like an improbability as we entered summer. Tonight, Metrolina's head coach Thomas Langley and his Warriors embark on another state title run.
Langley, staff, and team have endured a summer of safety protocols that have made tonight's game and the season ahead possible.
