Reynolds, Bunker Hill, Burns, Chase, East Burke, Enka, Erwin, Freedom, Madison, North Buncombe, North Henderson, Patton, Pisgah, Shelby, Swain County and T.C. Roberson.
The North Carolina Passing League is a non-contact, seven-on-seven high school football tournament that will feature teams from throughout the company’s recruiting territory in western North Carolina. The NCPL will utilize Erwin’s turf field and a secondary natural-grass playing surface to host as many as 49 games during the single-day event.
The game features quarterbacks, wide receivers, running backs and defensive backs, giving them an opportunity to sharpen their skills in a fun, competitive atmosphere.
