Celtics Seek Similar Sized Opponents

Posted: Updated:

   Stop 17 of the High School camp tour is at the home of the Celtics. Roanoke Catholic is coming off a 3-7 season from a year ago, and they acknowledge that they are making schedule changes to try and play teams that are more suited to their program.  Many of the VIS schools that have been on the Celtics schedule recently dwarf them in size to the point where they can't be competitive with those teams. On this year's schedule, Roanoke Catholic will play the likes of Auburn, Parry McCluer and Craig County to try and take on schools of similar enrollments. The Celtics will dress only 19 players this season, and a couple have never played football before this season.  But longtime coach Bob Price explains that this group has displayed amazing unity and work ethic, and they have been a pleasure to coach.
