Polk County adds Draughn to 2021 football schedule

Polk County has filled the unexpected vacancy in its 2021 football schedule.

The Wolverines will travel Oct. 22 to Valdese to face Draughn in a non-conference matchup.

Polk County had an opening in its schedule when East Rutherford decided to drop varsity football for the 2021 season. Draughn, meanwhile, saw its season opener with Thomas Jefferson cancelled due to COVID-19 issues within the Thomas Jefferson program.

The 1A Wildcats, who joined the Western Highlands Conference this season, had an open date on Oct. 22 and the two schools were able to schedule the game.

It will be the first meeting between the two programs.
