    I love wral and watch your high school football coverage faithfully!!!! But was so disappointed to watch friday night, Nov 23, 2012, to find that Tarboro's game was not one of your interest!! Our sons have worked so hard just like the other teams you took the time to show. We as parents of the players are so proud of our sons!!! The least thing you could have done was to show them the same respect that you showed your schools. Whats right is right! We might be a small town school but we have VIKING PRIDE AND WE DO WHAT WE DO!!!!!
