For the first time since 2007, the Watauga High football team has made its way to the 3AA Western Finals. The last time they did that was in 2007, (when WHS was a 4A school) when a guy named Eric Breitenstein was suiting up for the Pioneers. But WHS (13-1) march its way to the Western Finals Friday night by knocking off Mount Tabor at Jack Groce Stadium. For more on this story, please click on the link below....
