The final score will have no bearing on the season or make its way into the history books, but for Forsyth Central football fans Friday night’s preseason scrimmage against North Hall was a glitch-free celebration of a new era. Central rolled to a 33-0 victory in front of a packed house at Bulldog Stadium as former West Forsyth head coach Frank Hepler passed his first audition as head coach of the county’s oldest program. Standout performances came from familiar names—senior linebackers Sebastian Legarra and Jacob Ward pushed rushers backward at the point of attack all through the first half, while their classmate Sabrian Howard dazzled with his combination of power and elusiveness.
