Lakeside heads to Ringgold; North Webster travels to Haynesville

The Lakeside Warriors and North Webster Knights will open their 2011 football seasons tonight, as both teams hit the road.

The Warriors will head to Ringgold to take on the Redskins, while the Knights travel to Haynesville to take on an old rival, the Haynesville Golden Tornado.

Lakeside head coach Head coach Terrence Quarles is looking for big things from his Warriors this season, as the team's depth has improved and the team is heading into it's fourth year under his leadership.

"We were, as a staff, pleased with our second and third string guys in the jamboree," Quarles said. "They're young but they stepped in and played like they really wanted to be out there."


Lakeside will be looking to a pair of quarterbacks to trigger their spread offense. Cody Poe and Cameron Corely battled it out in fall practice and look to share the position, at least through the early part of the season.

"It looks like we'll play both quarterbacks this year," Quarles said. "We're looking forward to both of them playing a lot of quarterback for us this fall.

Both teams will be looking for a better season this year, as the two teams combined for only six wins a year ago.

North Webster

The North Webster Knights will make their debut tonight against a familiar foe, the Haynesville Golden Tornado.

Knights' head coach Joey Pesses and his team worked this week to eliminate mistakes they made in their jamboree.

"We have to correct our mistakes," he said. "We have to tackle better and we have to do a better job of holding on to the ball. We fumbled the ball too many times and we can't afford to that this week against Haynesville."

North Webster will want to get off to a better start, as Haynesville beat Springhill, 36-7 last year.
