While most schools knew their 10 opponents, many were still scurrying to wrap up the scheduling process even after the school year began.
Moore County High School will kick off its season on Friday, Aug. 19 with a home game against Cascade. It will mark the first official game for first-year head coach Jason Dobbs on the Moore County sidelines. MCHS officials said the home opener is Military Appreciation Night also. Anyone with a Military ID will be admitted free of charge.
Kickoff for all games is set for 7 p.m.
After a visit by the Champions, the Raiders take to the road for the next three weeks, traveling to Forrest on Aug. 26; powerhouse Columbia Academy on Sept. 2; and Cornersville on Sept. 9.
Moore County returns home on Sept. 23 and will host Grace Christian Academy-Franklin for Homecoming festivities.
The stay is brief, however, as the Raiders are back on the road on Sept. 23 with a trip to Summertown. Both Grace Christian Academy-Franklin and Summertown feature football programs that are in their infancy.
While the Raiders will contest four of their first six games on the road, they’ll have the luxury of hosting three of their final four down the stretch.
Moore County hosts Fayetteville City in a key conference match-up on Sept. 30 before having an off week on Friday, Oct. 7. Following the bye week, MCHS hosts longtime rival and district foe Huntland on Oct. 14.
Richland visits Lynchburg on Oct. 21 for the final regular season home contest. It will also be Senior Night for Moore County.
The final regular season game will be at Mt. Pleasant on Oct. 28.
2016 season tickets are available at the Moore County High School office for $24 each. Tickets include all home games, excluding any postseason contests.
