The oldest high school football team in Loudoun County is off to its best start since 2009. After dispatching Fauquier to open its season, Loudoun County High School fended off a late push from Millbrook on August 30 then cruised past Rock Ridge on September 7. In front of a home crowd on September 12, the Raiders used two first quarter interceptions and a pair of blocked punts to shutout the visiting Freedom Eagles, 48-0, and improve to 4-0 under the Wednesday Night Lights.
“We’re not the biggest on defense, but we run to the ball pretty well,” Loudoun County head coach Tony Rayburn said. “Our defense has played really well this year, for the most part. But we have to improve our tackling if we’re going to compete at a high level.”
