MORGANTOWN — There are cemented spots amongst the upper echelon of Class AAA football programs is West Virginia; storied programs with rich history such as Parkersburg, as well as recent dynasties such as Martinsburg. For the past two decades, MHS has earned its place among the powerhouses on the gridiron.
Last year switched the narrative as the Mohigans stumbled to a 4-6 finish, barely earning a playoff berth before falling to the wayside in round one. On Aug. 23, MHS made a definitive statement, scoring 17 unanswered points in the first quarter against top-ten ranked Parkersburg unit on the way to a 45-35 victory.
Now the Mohigans will look to keep the fire alive on their 2018 campaign as they travel to Steubenville (Ohio) for an OVAC matchup. The Big Red enter the matchup following a Week 1 stumble against Penn Hills (Pa.), where they fell 21-14.
