RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) —
#3 Dinwiddie Generals
2015: 8-4, reached 4A playoffs, second round
First game: 09/02 @ Hanover
Why: “Loaded to the gills” is how Josh Mathews describes the 2016 Generals. Head Coach Billy Mills warned that his team was young heading into last season, but that team still reached the 4A playoffs and won a game. The majority of that team is back, including senior quarterback Bryce Witt and pass catcher (he’s both a tight end and wide receiver) K’Vaughan Pope, who made ESPN as a freshman by hurdling a tackler in a game. The defense was a weakness last season, but it will be a strength this year. Head Coach Billy Mills essentially had a perfect team in 2013, and the 2016 team has that kind of potential.
