Boys Junior Varsity Football, Boys Varsity Football · FOOTBALL ROUNDUP: Riverdale Raiders

Last Week: 9-6 loss to Jonesboro (scrimmage)

The Raiders took on Jonesboro in a hard-fought scrimmage last Thursday. Riverdale flashed glimpsed of potential dominance at times, but were hindered by a whopping 16 penalties against the Cardinals.

On the bright side, the gifted pass-catching duo of senior quarterback Joseph Cambridge and senior wide receiver Greg White looked ready for the start of the season when the pair connected for an 8-yard touchdown in the second half. Sophomores Dante Walker and Wykevious Thomas and junior Josh Moore made life tough on the Jonesboro offense as well.

Riverdale is hoping to erase a three-year playoff drought this season, and will begin its journey against rivals North Clayton on Friday.
