I’ve written before about how special football season is for the Mooresville community. Since we are one of the few city school systems in the state, our football games feel much like the old days (if you’re old) when schools really did represent the local community. It doesn’t hurt that Mooresville has historically had great teams. There were a few rough years after coach Mike Carter retired, but with second year coach Hal Capps now in charge, it looks like things will likely be back on track with an expectation for a winning season. Mooresville has a great football stadium thanks in part to the contributions of Lowe’s Corporation, and the community provides great attendance and support, so Friday night football is something special here.
Last night, the Blue Devils had a most challenging assignment. West Rowan has been a powerhouse for years with an unbroken 46 game winning streak. That is, until last night! Mooresville took the challenge and even though the score was 14-0 in favor of West Rowan at the half, Mooresville managed to find the solution and put 21 points on the board in the second half to make the final score 21-14 Mooresville.

Condolences to my big brother, Steve, who is a big West Rowan fan and history teacher there.
