As noted in a story for Tuesday’s The Daily Advance, the injury bug is hitting Edenton and Northeastern football hard.
The Aces will likely miss five starters Friday against Plymouth due to injury: quarterback Luke Hoggard, tailback T.K. Melton, wide receiver Shaquon Tyner, tailback De’Shaun Hall and lineman David Lassiter.
NHS is without Jaubarie Brooks, Jamel Foster and Cedric Shannon for Friday against host Camden. Foster is scheduled to get an MRI on his left knee Wednesday, while Shannon is nursing a hamstring and Brooks is out of the season with a torn ACL.
With a chance to see two weeks of high school football in northeastern North Carolina, I’ve put together a new set of projections for the 1A Coastal 10 and 2A Northeastern Coastal conferences. Here they are (will probably do this on a weekly basis):

Coastal 10 — 1. Plymouth, 2. Camden, 3. Manteo, 4. Gates, 5. Perquimans, 6. Creswell, 7. Columbia, 8. Mattamuskeet, 9. Cape Hatteras
