Football: North Meck vs. Lake Norman Away
7:30 PM at Lake Norman High School. Lake Norman won their meeting last season 35-7. Players to watch: North Meck- LB Jaylen Bridges, QB Nolan Beasley, DB Devon Sutton; Lake Norman- QB Josh Ladowski, WR Corey Joyner, DL Geoffrey Lein. THE SKINNY: Both teams are looking for a fast start after having losing records in 2012. North Meck should benefit from the continuity of coach Brad Baker's second season and has some experienced, talented building blocks. Lake Norman is replacing 13 starters who graduated, so cohesion will be important to develop in pre-conference games. Ladowski is a strong running quarterback who also has developed into a good passer.
