The Whiteville Wolfpack was back in action for their first scrimmage of the season with Hoggard, James Kenan, Wallace Rose Hill, and Laney all showing up to play at Legion Stadium.   The Coaches were able to run their squads under game conditions in a controlled environment, and the players were put through their paces as each team had an opportunity to run their offensive and defensive squads against each other.
