I'm fine with them joining. I just wish for football you could NOT play some teams in your district. I know everything goes in cycles but it sure hasn't helped Appomattox the past few years winning most of their regular season games by 40-50+ points. I loved playing Lord Botetouet (sp?) this year and Heritage is always a tough game that we need to play. In 2016 we played highly ranked teams in class 3 and 4. WE still played our district teams (infact Dan River was real good that year, Union just barley got by them on a last minute big pass to Mitchell) but come playoff time we were ready for the harder competition.
