Pigskin Preview Recap

RALEIGH, N.C. -- For the most part, the weather held off just enough for the Pigskin Preview to crown its four (five) Boss Hogs Saturday afternoon.

Quarterback Travis Aldridge led East Duplin to their Boss Hog plaque in the first session. The Panthers had to fight off the efforts of Smithfield-Selma, Raleigh Sanderson, and Bunn.

Kendric Burney's two interceptions and two touchdown runs weren't good enough to deliver a Boss Hog to Southwest Onslow. Instead, Wake Forest-Rolesville surprised many beating out the Stallions, the defensive-minded Southern Vance and rushing/passing duo of tailback Devon Moore and quarterback Patrick Dennis.

During the third session, Fayetteville Smith boosted the running power of Carter Sharpe and Devin Radford, while Jacksonville White Oak possessed the deep threat ability of Deunta Williams. However, it was the Aleric Mullins-less East Wake squad that walked away with the Boss Hog just before referees stopped the event due to lightning.

After the "storm" cleared, the fourth session proved to be the most competitive. So competitive that Southeast Raleigh and Southern Durham had to share the Boss Hog after the two teams tied for most points. Freshman Desmond Smith was the showstopper of this group.

Each session held a round-robin tournament in which teams were awarded points for touchdowns, interceptions and defensive stops.
