Dade County High School Wolverine football team made their 2022-23 season debut Friday night in a controlled scrimmage against the Lakeview Ft. Oglethorpe Warriors.
The Wolverines dominated the Warriors in all aspects of the game taking a 21-0 lead in the first quarter and then coasting to an easy 35-0 win.
Dade displayed a strong running game with several different running backs and the passing game was equally impressive.
The defense dominated the out-manned Warriors as well allowing very little yardage and only a few first downs during the scrimmage.
Coach Jeff Poston stated, “I was pleased with our effort, but not with how we executed in a couple of situations.”
The Wolverines open the season Friday night at home against the Athens Academy Spartans from Athens. The AA Spartans will be a challenge for the Wolverines.
