Havelock heads to White Oak

“I think Pharoh has done a great job stepping into the quarterback role,” Bryant said of Cooper, a record-setting receiver on last season’s state championship team. “It took him a couple weeks to get the reads down, but when you have weapons like Michael Bowman and Taylor Woods and Derrell Scott and C.J. Lindsey and a seasoned offensive line, it helps a lot.

Bowman, a sophomore, has 21 catches for 346 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Rams, while new receiver Aron Rossi has 210 receiving yards and one touchdown.

Scott, a two-way starter whose touches offensively have been somewhat limited in the early going by Bryant, has 419 rushing yards and seven touchdowns. He had 139 yards and three scores last week against Kinston.

Meanwhile, A.J. Coplon is contributing everywhere on the field. He has just four catches but they total 203 yards, for a 50.7-yard average per catch. He also has two punt returns for touchdowns this season and a pair of interceptions on defense.

White Oak is off to an 0-4 start to the season under new coach Chad Ashley. Steven Moses ran for 74 yards to lead the Vikings in last week’s 41-0 loss to Southwest Onslow.

White Oak has scored just 14 points this season and is surrendering 30.8 per game.

The contest marks the 37th meeting between the two schools, with the Rams owning a 36-10 lead in the series.
