Football action in town tonight. Alexander Central will host Lincolnton in a 7 on 7 scrimmage. The scrimmage will begin at 6pm at Glenn Wilson Field at Cougar Stadium. Admission is free. Lincolnton is an interesting match-up. The Wolves went 12-3 last fall losing in the Western Regional Final to eventual State 2A Champion Shelby.This morning it was confirmed that rising senior wide receiver Sage Surratt has transferred from East Lincoln to Lincolnton. Surratt is a top 100 North Carolina recruit. He is listing UNC, Duke, Harvard, East Carolina, App State, and South Carolina as his top choices at the present. It is not certain if Surratt will be with his new Lincolnton teammates tonight in Taylorsville.
