Union, Jonesville look good in jamborees
Union Daily Times
Union and Jonesville football teams looked sharp on Friday in jamboree action. Union defeated Chapin 21-3 in the Dorman Jamboree. Jonesville downed nemesis Blacksburg 36-6 in the Cherokee County Jamboree.
Union’s running game and defense was clicking on all cylinders against Chapin in one half of regulation play.
Senior Steven Brewington, competing for the quarterback position with sophomore Cameron Willis, made a statement. Brewington threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Dontee Stewart and a 12-yard scoring strike to Pip Smith.
Kendrick Neal ran the ball in from 2 yards out for the Jackets’ final score.
Union’s defense allowed the Eagles just 32 yards offense and sacked Chapin’s quarterback twice.
Still, coach Tommy Bobo wants to see more consistency and intensity from the defense.
Union kicks off the 2004 season on Friday against Spartanburg at Gibbs Stadium. Game time is 7:30.

Coach David Lipsey was pleased with what he saw, saying when Blacksburg’s defenders pressed, his receivers took what they gave them.
