East Henderson going to be a challenge for the Mustangs

Many WCU fans in Sylva recall Brett Chappel’s name.  Chappel was an outstanding High School Football player, was given an athletic scholarship to play for the Catamounts, then landed the head coaching job at East Hendersonville. Chappel’s talents were able to shine at WCU when he was given the opportunity to move from defense to offense and carry the football.  Fans recall lots of exciting plays made by Brett Chappel for the Cats.  Now Brett Chappel has coached his East HendersonEagles to a 6-1 record and a national Max Preps ran king of 2497 and a 72 ranking in the state.

The Mustangs looked to be on a roll following two close and exciting back to back wins over Tuscola and West Henderson, but the excitement took a hit last week when the Mustangs were cat smacked by the Franklin Panthers at The Pit. The Mustangs  offense could not find traction against the Panthers and ended up with a 40-7 loss. A couple of turnovers the Panthers were able to turn into quick points helped get the momentun moving in favor of the Panthers

This Friday Night the Mustangs travel to East Henderson at Flat Rock to take on the Eagles.  Those with a good car radio can listen to the pre-game show game live on 540 a-m WRGC
