Lions respectably finish season at 4-2 / October 16, 2017
The Halifax County Middle School football team has enjoyed a respectable season, finishing 4-2 this fall.

Coach LeVar Medley said the team had a very good campaign.

“The guys ended up getting better at the end of the year than they were in the beginning. We learned a new scheme on offense and the guys learned it pretty well,” said Medley.

Comet coach Grayson Throckmorton insisted before the season that all football programs from the Lions on up would be on the same page.

That appears to have become a reality this fall.

Medley said the Lions ran the Wing-T offense and a version of the 4-3 and sometimes a 5-2 defensive scheme this fall.

Halifax was a bit more multi-dimensional on defense, including a 4-2-5 at times.

Halifax had several individual standouts, according to Medley. These include Osirisis Ross, who has since moved up to play with the jayvees. Ross was the quarterback.

Saeed Buster proved to be a major threat at running back. Fullback Mikyler Smalls led the blocking effort at fullback.

Zach Carter served as the defensive captain. Carter played defensive end and tight end.
