This week's PrepsOn3 Spotlight takes us to Tunnel Hill, GA to talk with Northwest Whitfield Boys Basketball Coach Ryan Richards ahead of their big matchup with arch-rival Dalton High School. The Bruins are off to an 8-4 start (4-1 in Region 6-4A play), as they play host Tuesday night to the Dalton Catamounts (who are off to a 7-4 start). These two rivals are a mere 9 miles across town from each other, and as you will hear Richards reference, the rivalry is equally as heated on the hardwood as it is on the football field.
The boys are not the only ones in action Tuesday, as the the Lady Bruins and Lady Catamounts play prior to the boys taking center-stage. The girls game tips off at 6pm, and the boys will tip following the conclusion.
