Appomattox’s fourth title in five years is unlike any other


SALEM, Va. (WFXR) — Appomattox’s return to the top of the VHSL Class 2 football world didn’t come without struggle.

“Joy” became the team’s motto this season after a 1-2 start to the year. Now, the Raiders are state champions once again after a one-year absence.

“We just had a different group of guys. It didn’t seem like they clicked at first but boy they started clicking before the season was over,” Smith said.

Appomattox defeated Stuarts Draft, 42-21, in the Class 2 championship game at Salem Stadium on Saturday, marking the school’s fourth title in five years.

Senior running back Christian Ferguson scored two touchdowns in his final game of his high school career.

“It feels surreal right now all the hard work we’ve been through,” Ferguson said. “All the pain. All the tired workouts All the two-a-days it just feels really great to end it all with a state championship.”
