East Chapel Hill High School Football
East Chapel Hill High School football program has weathered a rough couple of years. After losing all but one game in 2016, the school decided to only play in the JV conference for 2017, with the goal of building their program and abilities. While the season started slow, they gradually gained traction and eventually went 6-3-1, with plans to start a varsity schedule next year.
The team tried to get closer on and off the field. They participated in multiple community outreach and team building exercises, as well as practicing hard every week. Watching tapes and spending serious time in the weight room has emboldened their spirits, leading to much excitement about next year’s season. They hope that their results from this past year attract new players to a small program, so that they can continue to grow and improve.
