New stadium opens Friday
By BARRY BURLESON
A history-making night awaits Friday in the small Marshall County town of Potts Camp.
For the first time ever, the Cardinals will play a home football game on campus with the grand opening of the new sports complex.
“It’s a really big deal,” said coach Shane Stone, who was hired in 2009 to launch the new football program. “There is a lot of excitement, and there should be. I will be excited, too. It’s a history-making night, and I’m so glad we have this opportunity.”
But at the same time, Stone said he, his coaching staff and his players must also stay focused on the task at hand. The season-opening opponent will be cross county rival H.W. Byers.
“It’s hard to keep the kids focused, but we have a football game to play,” he said. “Byers is coming in, and they have a lot of good athletes. Coach (James) Kimbrough does a great job there. We have to execute.
“I know we will have a ton of people here, and I know Byers will bring a big crowd. Hopefully we will play well enough to get a win, but it will be a tough, tough task.”
Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
