Cedar Ridge football Coach Corey Lea talks Thursday’s season opener

Updated: February 24, 2021

Like most other football teams across North Carolina, Cedar Ridge is starting football season in the spring. Now, they will start a night earlier than anticipated. The Red Wolves season-opener against Northwood has been moved to Thursday night because of rain anticipated on Friday. For new Cedar Ridge Coach Corey Lea, it will give his new staff a chance to learn about his new team. The Red Wolves were supposed to face Granville Central in a scrimmage last week, but it was rained out. The Red Wolves will have to find a replacement for Isaiah McCambrey, who transferred to Williams last summer. Aiden Seagrvoes is expected to be the starting quarterback for Friday’s opener against the Chargers. Jake Mergenthal, the younger brother of former Cedar Ridge All-Conference offensive lineman Braxton Mergenthal, will be a prominent player on defense for the Red Wolves. You can hear live coverage of the Red Wolves vs. the Chargers on Friday night at 6:15 on Hillsboroughsports.com.
