Heading into the first full week of the regular season for High School football. The stakes couldn't be much higher than the game on Friday night at the new turf field at Monticello High School.
The Mustings will face off with the Albemarle Patriots for both teams regular season opener, with a shot at the city-county trophy on the line. Monticello has gotten the most of the Pats in recent years, having won the last two meetings and five of the last six.
This year also marks the start of the Wendell Green regime at Albemarle High School. After spending the past few seasons working under Rick Vrhovac, Green looks to take the Patriots out of mediocrity and into the post season. It all starts on Friday night at 7 on the new turf field at Monticello High School.
