|Huntington faces tough schedule|
Huntington School will face five double-A schools and compete in a four-team district in 2009.
"This is definitely the toughest schedule I have had since I have been here," said Huntington coach Chad Harkins, who will be in his fifth year at the school this fall. "It's a challenge."
Huntington will open its season at home on August 21 against double-A Central Private before traveling to Claiborne Academy.
The Hounds will then face double-A defending state champion Centreville on September 4.
Huntington opens district play at home against Tallulah on Sept. 11.
Following a home game against Riverdale, Huntington hosts Briarfield in a district contest on Sept. 25.
Huntington travels to Glenbrook on Oct. 2, followed by a home game against Cenla.
An away game at Union Christian on Oct. 16 will be followed by a home game against double-A Wilkinson County Christian Academy.
Huntington ends its regular season at home against Trinity on Oct. 30 in its final district game.
"We've got a lot of traveling ahead of us," Harkins said. "I don't understand that when you have ACCS across the river. The main thing is the district games, although we want to win them all. Hopefully we can be playing for a district championship in our final game against Trinity which would mean we would make the playoffs."
In other interesting scheduling, Wilkinson County Christian Academy was scheduled to open against Cathedral High on August 21.
But Cathedral head football coach Craig Beesley said he was told the Green Wave could not play a private school, before later being told they could.
Since that time, WCCA head coach Sam Byrd filled the spot with CHEF.
"We're still in the process of trying to work something out," Beesley said. "Sam is trying to see if they can play CHEF on another Friday. It was just a misunderstanding, but hopefully we can work something out."
It would mark the first time for Cathedral to play a Mississippi Private School Association school in football.
"We talked with Coach Harkins, but they did not have any open dates," Beesley said.
Cathedral is still trying to find opponents for September 4 and September 18.
Trinity Episcopal opens its season at Prairie View, while Adams County Christian School opens at Cenla.
