Shrine Bowl practice for RMHS' Barnes

Rocky Mount offensive lineman Whit Barnes (right) bangs against a North Carolina teammate during Day 1 of practices Monday for the Shrine Bowl of North Carolina game set for Saturday afternoon at Wofford College. The South Carolina and North Carolina squads are holding practice at Dorman High School in Spartanburg, S.C.

The Wake Forest recruit, who wore No. 50 during his 48-game career at RMHS, will wear No. 51 in Saturday's contest. (Click on picture to enlarge)

Richwalski will not be a candidate for the NN football job

Northern Nash athletic director Dan Richwalski stated Monday that he will not be a candidate for the head football coaching position at the school. He said he was informed by the Nash-Rocky Mount Schools central office that he could hold both positions at the school.

Currently, no head football coach in the N-RM system is an athletic director. Incidently, no head football coach in the current NEW 6 3-A Conference, which Northern Nash is a member, is an athletic director.

That pattern will continue next year when SouthWest Edgecombe leaves the league and Wilson Hunt joins it. Hunt's AD Stevie Hinnant is an assistant coach with Warriors' football team.

Chad Smith resigned as the Knights' head football coach on Nov. 10.
