The last preview focuses on Coach Tim Carson’s Weddington Warriors, the 2016 3AA State Champions.

In the Carson era (2011-present), the Warriors are averaging 11 wins per season. The team has built its reputation on a consistently strong defense and a balanced offensive attack.

Despite returning only seven starters, expectations always run high.

Whitner Litton (6-0, 180) will quarterback the Warriors in 2017.

Weddington’s strength on offense should come via the pass.  Max Brimigion (6-0, 168), James Shipley (5-10, 160) and Chase Turner (5-10, 165) are a talented crew possessing quick feet, speed and good hands.

On defense, the depth and talent are in the Weddington defensive secondary with three of their top receivers Brimigion, Shipley, and Turner) playing both ways.

Eamon Murphy (6-0, 190) and Alex Mock should be impact players at the linebacker position.

Coach Carson previews his team days before the start of the season.
