COACH AGUILAR - POSTGAME VIDEO
Video by Jaxson Irey - WHS Class of 2023

In an interview with Coach Aguilar, a few short weeks ago, he was upbeat and he even suggested what happened Friday night at Collegiate might very well happen. The Coaches are big on this group of Crusaders and Friday's results clearly shows why.

Wellington jumped out early and never looked back. The BIG RED DEFENSE fired on all 8 cylinders. Ledbetter's arm, Washington's hands, and Hatfield's legs, (and a Crusader team pumped full of pride and determination), took care of business and now proudly stand at 1-0. The young linemen, seeing their FIRST FRIDAY night action EVER,didn't look like rookies to many, and let's not forget the CRUSADER FAITHFUL either...it honestly appeared the visitors outnumbered the home folks, if not in numbers, surely in spirit and support. The student body - superb - nothing but pride and joy emanated from the east side of Spartanville Stadium. Nothing but smiles on the post-game walk to the parking lot and then home.
