Jeff Highfill is the only coach that the William Byrd Boys Soccer team has ever known. He took over when the program started and he has never given up the reins.

It was Highfill's 400th career victory as the Boys Head Soccer Coach at William Byrd. Highfill also serves as the Terriers Head...

The Brookville Bees were leading the way after outscoring their first two opponents 109 to 7. William Byrd the latest team with a chance to slow down Jeff Woody's team. The Bees were up 34-0 to nothing at the half. William Byrd wouldn't go down without a fight. Bees quarterback Kendall Becraft hits Benjamin Hogg for a completion, but he's stripped and the Terriers' Bryson Plunkett recovers. On to the third quarter, and Becraft fakes the handoff and goes to the air, finding Hilson Atkins for a 38-yard touchdown.

The Salem Spartans who knocked off Franklin County last week in a tight one at home, hit the road for Vinton this week and Bob Patterson Stadium, where the William Byrd Terriers awaited. Jeff Highfill's team always seems to play the Spartans tough. This game was no exception as Big Orange came out fired up and ready to play. Zach Hill set the tone early, on the opening drive of the game, he broke a tackle and burst into the open field, he was finally tracked down from behind, but not before getting 51 yards all the way to the Salem one yard line.

Now that we know part of the Blue Ridge picture, it's time to see if Northside would have to share that regular season crown with Rockbridge. A win Friday night and the Wildcats had part of the district title, as Blue Ridge rules do not count head to head wins as tiebreakers. William Byrd had other ideas in Vinton. The Terriers and the Wildcats were in an even battle, tied at 7 in the first quarter. Porter Abell with the fumble on the hand-off and Byrd's Simeon Horstmann was all over it. He recovered it at the 24, but all it leads to is a missed field goal for the Terriers.
