Benefit game kicks off football action in Floyd

The Floyd County High School varsity Buffaloes “benefit” game against Galax Friday evening lets fans get a glimpse of the new season of players taking the field and work out any late kinks before kicking the season off “officially” against Christiansburg at home next Friday.

A “benefit” game means charging admission and the money collected is split between the two schools and the Virginia High School League.

Weather forecasts for this Friday night call for “scattered thunderstorms” with the chances of rain ranging from 35 to 55% and humidity starting at 74% at the start of the game and up to 100% by the game’s end.

Could be worse and as Floyd Countians know all too well, a storm falling on Main Street in Floyd may not drop any of the wet stuff at the football field just up the hill.

Hard rain fell on U.S. 221 just a couple of miles from our house Friday but nothing fell at home.

Go figure.

Bring rain gear and get ready for a tough game between Floyd and Galax at our high school this evening.

School finishes its second week today and fall sports are upon us.

Play ball!

Winifred Beale starts his 39th year as head coach of the Varsity Buffaloes.
