    Clinton needs a Home game for week 3 Sept. 4th or week 6 Sept 25th.

    The game must be at Clinton as we only have 4 current home games.

    Please contact AD Brad Spell at

    It wouldnt be that long of a drive, 2 1/2 hours may sooner depending on traffic and how fast you drive. I wouldn't go by way of Raleigh
    That would make an excellent endowment game.

    It would be cool to have Reidsville for a home and home series. To be the best you've got to beat the best.

    I think their QB passed for like 400/game last year. Definitely an offense no one around here has seen.

    Yeah, teams from the Triangle west just air it out more. I stay near Panther Creek High and their QB would easily throw for 200-300/game. I don't think we necessarily need that at Clinton, but we do need to mix it up more. It seems like Coach Johnson is moving towards that direction.

    Have to find a QB who can, I think we have options but when u are gonna pass you have to practice footwork, technique, release etc.

    Coach Johnson knows what he is doing.

    No doubt he knows what he's doing, it's just a process. Many teams up here don't have a running game anywhere near what Clinton has. I've talked to Coach Crocker at Panther Creek and he wishes he had 1/10 of Clinton's running game lol!

    On another note, bro, don't want to hijack the Darkhorses’ thread any further, but big day for us the 22nd. Should be a good one.#thebronzebomber

    That’s a pretty bold choice. Hats off to the Darkhorses for picking a tough team.

    They didn't have much choice, they called over 60 schools. Either timing didn't work, or team didn't want to play Clinton, or logistics didn't make sense etc etc.

    Should be a fun matchup, but a long drive for CC.

    Hate to see teams have to travel so far, that’s got to be close to 200 miles, but it must be exciting to play someone from so far away.
    Perhaps if it’s extended the Clinton kids could enjoy a trip to Charlotte, next year, and maybe a tour of Bank of America Stadium and possibly meet a couple of the Panthers.
    I know Charlotte Christian will leave with much respect for the Darkhorses’ program and the Clinton community’s love for football.

    Im guessing the Charlotte Christian game fell thru didnt see it listed on the schedule posted on Maxpreps or in the article on highschoolot nor was it mentioned during the interview with Coach Johnson.

    Game still on. Saw AD B. Spell earlier today and that game came up. Not sure why it’s not listed but unless Covid-19 cancels it, both schools are set to play it.
