Football: Hough vs. Sun Valley Away
Hough vs. Sun Valley. Kickoff: 5:30 p.m. Aug. 21, Memorial Stadium (Charlotte). Last meeting: This is the first meeting. Players to watch: Hough – DB Mark Fields II, RB Van Smith, DB Marquill Osborne; Sun Valley – RB Albert Funderburk, QB Isaiah Hicklin, NG Dominique Ventura. The skinny: Both teams will debut new coaches. Miles Aldridge takes over at Hough, which won 10 games last season and has eight defensive starters returning. Sun Valley will debut under new coach Tad Baucom. The Spartans, a Class 3A school, were 7-5 last season. Hough has plenty of new faces on offense, but returnee Carl Tucker should be one of the lake area’s top wide receivers.
