Less than a decade since the school first opened its door, the Woodgrove High School football team has made history. On December 8, the Wolverines took down Lake Taylor High School, 38-33, to win the program’s first ever VHSL 4A State title in football.
“It was a great game. [Our team] did a tremendous job,” Woodgrove head coach Mike Skinner said. “We kept things moving, and we made a few more plays than them. We made some tremendous plays.”
The game was Woodgrove football’s first ever appearance in a state championship. The football program – started in 2010 when Woodgrove first opened – has made six playoff appearances in the past seven seasons but never advanced to a state semifinal or final appearance until 2018.
“We’ve never had anything like this in the little town of ours,” Skinner said.
