Cougars Picked to Finish Fifth, Mitchell Sixth in WHC Football

The preseason coaches’ poll in the upcoming 2014 Western Highlands Conference football race was just released and it looks like Mountain Heritage, Mitchell and Madison will have a lot to prove being picked to finish 5th, 6th and 7th respectively in the only split 1/A-2/A conference in the area. Owen, which returns 16 starters including 2,500 yard rusher Jager Gardner and three other all-conference players, was the top vote getter in the poll followed by Polk County, Hendersonville and Avery County. The Cougars open up the season on the road in Morganton at Patton on August 22nd while Mitchell will begin their season at Millers Creek against West Wilkes on the same night.
