Latta— The Latta High School Vikings and Head Coach Brandon Iseman are hoping to build on a promising 8-4 campaign from the 2016 season.

And, with a 26-22 win over rival Lake View in the first game of the season last week, the Vikings are heading in the right director thus far.

Iseman says that the strength of his team so far is that Latta has athletes on the edge while the biggest weakness is the need for a stronger running game.

In the week one win over Lake View, Senior Wide Receiver Kendall Moultrie had a huge game, the 6’0”, 180 lbs senior had nine catches for 100 yards and two touchdowns. He also led the team in rushing with 58 yards and a rushing TD as well.

Quarterback Dylan Brewer, a junior, was 15 for 24 for 158 yards.

This week Latta travels to Creek Bridge.

In addition to Moultrie, the Vikings will have a number of seniors who will be expected to help lead the team this season including Linebacker Mikey Dotson (6’ 0”, 200 lbs).

Brewer leads a strong core of juniors that also includes Linebacker Chandler Nolan (5’ 8”, 200 lbs) and Deonte Stanley (6’ 2”, 185), who plays wide receiver and defensive back.

In the game again Lake View, Nolan contributed four solo tackles while Stanley had 36 yards receiving and four solo tackles.

After the Creek Bridge match up this Friday, will travel to Dillon to the annual rivalry match up and an opportunity for the Vikings to test their meddle against the always tough Wildcats.

A game against East Clarendon comes up on Sept. 8, followed by a match up with Kingstree on the road on Sept. 15.

Andrews comes to Latta on Sept. 22 for the final game for September.

October opens with Latta hosting Marion on Oct. 6, followed by a game with Johnsonville on Oct. 13.

 The regular season closes out with games against Mullins on Oct. 20 and against Carvers Bay on Oct. 29.
