TRINITY – Trinity and Wheatmore will try to move up from the bottom spots in the Piedmont Athletic Conference football standings this year.

Trinity was 4-6 a year ago, with its lone PAC victory against Wheatmore.

Wheatmore was winless in five conference games and 3-6 overall.

Trinity, which plays Friday night at Chatham Central under third-year coach Marlon Morris, might be able to count on versatile Dominic Payne and Dylan Hodges to spark the offense.

Wheatmore has some offensive potential under coach Philip Yarbrough, who’s dealing with a small roster.

In its three wins last year, Wheatmore scored more than 30 points in each of those games. The Warriors, who open Friday night at home against West Davidson, have last season’s leading tackler, linebacker Ethan Roberts, back for a senior season.
