COLUMBIA (WACH)- First and Ten is back and what better matchup for our Game to WACH than two teams that know each other all to well: A.C. Flora vs. White Knoll.
White Knoll is led by Dean Howell, who coached at Flora for the past four seasons. Reggie Shaw takes over the Falcons program coming over from Ben Lippen.
"Those kids are important to me," Howell said. "That was my first head coaching job and we were able to do some pretty special things over there."
Shaw will try and continue that success with the Falcons, who lost 10 seniors from last year's team that fell just short of the 3A semifinals.
"We're young, but playing week zero gives us a good test and we'll find out where we are," Shaw said.
With the familiarity on each side, expect to see surprises come Friday night at the Wolf Den. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
