Talk It Out NC is an initiative led by the North Carolina Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission to address the issue of underage drinking.

The organization worked with football programs across North Carolina last season to hold a Game of the Week where players and coaches took a pledge to talk about alcohol and making responsible decisions.

Polk County’s September meeting with Hendersonville was one of those games, and now head football coach Bruce Ollis has been featured in a video produced by Talk It Out NC to share more information about the program.

The video includes a scene of Polk County’s 2019 team running on to W.J. Miller Field before a game.

University of North Carolina football coach Mack Brown also appears in the video.
