Comet prepare for scrimmage opener vs. Randolph-Henry / August 15, 2019
Halifax County High School varsity football has its first scrimmage Saturday against Randolph-Henry at 10 a.m. in Charlotte Courthouse.

This will be a good opening scrimmage for the Comets, according to coach Grayson Throckmorton.

R-H has a tough, very disciplined, and well-coached squad. They don’t have excessive numbers, but Throckmorton still thinks this will be a solid test.

“They’re going to be competitive. It’s going to be a really good first scrimmage for us to see how we respond to someone other than ourselves,” said Throckmorton.

The coach wants to see how the Comets adapt to the base plays the staff has installed. Halifax also gets game-like speed and scrimmage action, which will help with conditioning.

Throckmorton has two primary goals here, including evaluating the Comet personnel. The coach also wants to get football conditioning, in order to be ready for Nottoway here on the season opener Aug. 30.
