SNOW HILL, N.C. (WNCT) – Week 4 of high school football started off with a bang at Greene Central High School Friday morning. WNCT’s Backyard Brawl pep rally headed to Greene County bright and early to get these fans pumped up for tonight’s game against rival Eastern Wayne.
”They love this school, they love the community. Heritage is really important to these kids and to their parents so I’m not surprised at all about the great turnout this morning. The kids were really excited,” said Patrick Greene, principal at Greene Central High School.
And they should be. The Rams start the season at 3 – 0 for the first time since 2007.
Amayia Gardner, a cheerleader at Greene Central High explains: ”I’m excited about trying to go undefeated and not letting anybody get to us so we can keep that motivation.”
Senior quarterback Tre Wade has seen this team claw their way back to the top.
”We put everything together. We always had the pieces but we never played as a team. And this year it just all came together,” said Wade.
And while these two live rams almost stole the show this morning, something students and fans said over and over again about their quarterback earns top honors.
So, what’s with the “Oh my gosh, Tre…” thing?
“I don’t even know. The coaches and players always tease me about that but I really don’t even know,” said Wade.
If this morning’s pep rally is any indication, it should be an electric atmosphere at game time.
Students, faculty, and fans got up bright and early this morning for a predawn pep rally at Greene Central High School. WNCT’s Backyard Brawl will feature the Eastern Wayne Warriors who travel just 16 miles to take on the Greene Central Rams for a 7pm kickoff this evening. Despite the early hour, everyone had a great time, and they hope to carry the energy over into tonight’s game. Greene Central starts the season at 3-0 for the first time since 2007 and hopes to stay undefeated with a win tonight. Eastern Wayne comes into tonight’s game at 1-1 after a tough loss at home against Goldsboro 2 weeks ago.
