Terrence Jennings will seek to take his gridiron game to Ferrum University next season. The Comet became the fourth local football player to announce his college choice. Ferrum’s announcement came Tuesday. Jennings, 5-9 and 230-pounds, said Ferrum was his first choice. “I liked the campus and the athletics and the football team,” said the Comet senior.

Football in search of defense

Even during the middle of the spring sports season, the HCHS varsity football staff has been busy working on ways to improve the Comet defensive performance this fall. HCHS, 3-7 a year ago, struggled to stop opposing defenses, especially in the rushing game. That area has gotten considerable attention in the off-season.
