Pasquotank football trends on social media

Area football teams have earned some national exposure on social media over the last year. On Friday night, Pasquotank joined Currituck and Camden with a notable highlight.

Pasquotank’s Jaquez Bunch delivered a big hit against Camden in Friday night’s 44-0 win against the Bruins.

He joins Currituck’s Cameron Whitehurst, who had a big run against Camden last year and Camden’s Brandon Underwood, who broke off this run against Perquimans in 2016.
