In the smallest division of Virginia high school football, there are only a handful of programs in the state that can say that they are ‘there’ every year. The rest of the Division 1 world is cyclical.
Last year, Eastern Montgomery was at its apex. This year, it’s Galax. Two years ago, Holston was the one riding high.
Two of the most recent upswingers will meet tonight when top-seeded Galax hosts No. 16 Holston in the opening round of the Division 1 Western Section playoffs at Galax High School.
