If memory serves me correctly , I think they had a post season game  of some sort at Gate City  several years ago. Their coach  was John  Justice with mom I became acquainted with when he returned to Buchanan County . He was Principal of Garden High School for  short time and relocated to Knoxville.. 

you statement about APPO is correct as I never heard any more about them until 2015 when they made an  unbelievable   late comeback to beat Richlands.

Congrats to Appo on 3 amazing seasons. R.E. Lee was the better team IMO, but they got out coached in all phases of the game in that 2nd half. Appomattox may not 4-peat next season, but with this new Era they have started,  they will now be in the mix of things for seasons to come.

I do give Lees coaches credit for keeping their players head in the game on the punt that never crossed the LOS and finishing that play for a TD.  Not a play you see very often.

WOW!  Tongue and cheek right off the bat!

RE LEE came to play and they were a great team.  Two great teams met and battled with Appomattox having to fight back most all of the game.  Javon Scruggs (#1 QB) is a PLAYER.  Every time Lee took momentum he did something to swing it back to our favor.

I was super proud of our kids, especially some of out back ups!  #4 Drew Mann went out on the first offensive series and then #54 Daniel Baldwin never came out after half time (maybe even before the half).  Both of those guys are starting Dog and Middle Linebacker on defense and T.E. and left tackle on Off.  For Appomattox to overcome those two major losses and still battle back to win was amazing.

Plus, RE LEE scored on one of the most bazaar plays that I have ever seen.  Punter shanks the punt so bad that it never crosses the LOS and rolls to their side of the field. I thought it rolled OB but I guess it didn't.  They pick it up as our guys caught up in the excitement of the big stop and then this punt and......the kid runs it for a TD.  

44-1 over the past three years (and that "one" lost in the 3A finals yesterday).  Don't hate on them for that success.  All dynasties start somewhere and Appomattox along with Coach Smith and company are on their roll.  Will they win it next year..........people didn't think they would win it this year.

That was a crazy play! And I thought that would be the back breaker for Appo but that next drive they went 3 plays and in the end zone. Much respect to them for never quitting as well as Lee. Had Appo not gotten field position on the 50 every possession Lee might have taken this one by 2 tds.

Way too many woulda coulda shoulda's to call any play a true back breaker. Appo beat themselves up with way way too many very bad mistakes in first half and some bad plays in second half. I attribute alot of that to having 6 major players out of the game by 2nd half and much younger inexperienced players stepping up and giving it their all. Soo to say if something had not happened then let me say if the punt in first half had not been dropped then surely the score outcome may have been alot different.

I've never seen a fan base yet of a successful team that people didn't think was arrogant, Union included.  It goes with the territory.  Also, you are not going to have much of a fan base if you have a losing team.  #fact of life #2

Lies. I've seen more people lined the fences of Bullitt Park and Riggs stadium during losing season than I see at Unions successful seasons now. Football was just different back then

APPO beats UNION by 3 and LEE by 4, I would guess it would be fair to say they earned this one. The WEST still rules there is no debate about that

Yes it was a tough earned win. Lee came fully loaded and firing.Appo forgot to bring flak jackets and took alot of hits. But dang you have got to give Leemen credit they are a strong group of young men to be respected.

I'll keep my hat on my bald head to keep it warm thankyou. However, i would ask you look on THE OTHER MESSAGE BOARD and take a gander at a thread called Congratulations to R E Lee.

Have you seen the 5 or 6 pictures of people with no front teeth and him mocking Union along with those pictures? Or are you just turning a blind eye to the BS that goes on over there?

Congratulations to Appomattox from a Union fan that calls it like I see it. You guys have put together a great program that will be remembered for some time. This arrogance on here is not shared by all bear fans. The bears had a good season and over achieved. Our one dimensional offense player will graduate this year. I looking for bears to be very average next season will have to Waite and see. Again congratulations on a fantastic run.

Would love to know why we are being called "arrogant"? I think that is pretty unjustified...

I quoted your buddy Kenny stabler and ask him a question and he came at me. Once I threw it back at him then all he could say was that we are all uneducated (or community college educated at best) and toothless, opioid using, hill people that did not belong on VAPreps. I was having fun but I had to quit entertaining Him because my phone battery was getting low in the mall and I was trying to watch the FB Live stream of the champ game later so I didn't want my phone to die. 

So no, he was not attacked whatsoever. He interjected himself into for his own fun. I've gave you a way harder time and the worst thing you've ever called me is "Empty Head" so in hindsight I appreciate that ?
