Castlewood takes down Honaker in Russell Co. football rivalry

Virginia Kickoff

CASTLEWOOD, Va. (WJHL) – The ‘Russell County Cup’ is quite an accomplishment for the towns of Castlewood, Honaker and Lebanon. Before last season, Castlewood hadn’t won it since 1998!

The Blue Devils feel a tide turning, as they took down Honaker Tuesday night, 38-0 at B.C White Stadium.

Landen Taylor made plays at quarterback for the Blue Devils, making a couple long runs to set up touchdown drives in the second half. MJ Carter followed with a 49-yard TD run in the 3rd quarter, and Jeremiah Allen punched one in from two yards out in the 4th quarter.

Honaker QB Sean Gill made some plays as well. He was under duress for much of the second half by a motivated Castlewood defensive line. Gill is just a freshman, and is sure to still get the Tigers fanbase excited about what could come.
