Central High School football hit the road this week for a pair of seven-on-seven scrimmage tournaments at Walker Valley and Shelbyville High Schools. The Red Raiders showed improvement over the course of the week and wrapped up with a winning record in their Shelbyville scrimmages.
The Shelbyville event also closed out the team's seven-on-seven schedule for the summer.
The week began on Tuesday, July 16, with three seven-on-seven matches at Walker Valley. Both sides of the ball had notable plays. This included a three and out for the defense against Ooltewah and a strong performance from the team's running game.
The Raiders returned to action on Thursday, July 18, at Shelbyville. The offense continued to click as the team picked up a 3-2 record against opponents for the day.
The next preseason action for the Raiders will be on August 2, when Stewarts Creek comes to Manchester for a scrimmage at Carden-Jarrell field.
