The 2014 Western Albemarle Warrior football team is poised to make a run at its third consecutive Jefferson District championship.

Despite graduating 23 seniors, the team returns six starters on defense and three on offense. The off-season has proved beneficial for the team, as many of the athletes have seen an increase their size, speed and strength.

This summer the team participated in the U.Va. 7-on-7 tournament and looks forward to going to Skyline High School for their 7-on-7 on July 21.

Last season the junior varsity team also captured the Jefferson District title, as the team motto, One Program, took root. The coaching staff anticipates that a hardworking, athletic team will enter camp on August 4 ready to get back to work. The team hopes to improve defensively and continue to average over 40 points a game.

The home opener is August 29 at 7 p.m. against Spotswood. This season Western hosts all of its local rivals—Albemarle, Monticello and Charlottesville—making for an exciting home schedule.

The Warriors’ first annual Youth Camp will be held July 14-16 with Head Coach Ed Redmond and his staff providing non-contact football instruction for rising 3rd through 8th graders. Sign up at: westernfootballyou.wix.com/westernyouthcamp.

Coach Redmond and his staff would like to thank all the proud supporters of Western football. For more information, check out the team website: wahsfootball.com.
