Legendary Appalachian State University football coach Jerry Moore will be honored in conjunction with Appalachian State’s inaugural Sun Belt Conference home game versus South Alabama on Saturday, Oct. 4, the University announced on Thursday.

Here is a rundown of the elementary school football games that were played last weekend. GBR would like to thank Stephen Poulos, the Watauga, Mitchell, and Avery County Park & Recreation Departments

Do you believe in deja vu? Well, Watauga High football coach Ryan Habich hopes history does repeat itself Friday night when Avery comes to Jack Groce Stadium. Last year, the Pioneers (1-1) went limping into their bye week following a near upset loss at Ashe County.

Well, you can't win them all. The Watauga Middle School football team found that out Wednesday night. The Wolverines (2-1) got tripped up 34-20 by East Alexander at Hardin Park Elementary School. Despite the loss, Watauga coach Mark Smith praised his troops.

The Lees-McRae men's soccer team laid on a fury of shots in the waning minutes, but fell 2-0 to North Georgia at Tate Field Wednesday afternoon in Banner Elk, N.C.
