Foundation to travel to West Orange to open season in 2015, 2016

by: Steven Ryzewski Senior Sports Editor


Week One of the 2015 and 2016 high school football seasons will feature a “Battle for Winter Garden” of sorts.

Foundation Academy head coach Brad Lord confirmed today that the Lions and the West Orange Warriors will play each other twice, the season opener for both teams in 2015 and 2016, with both games taking place at West Orange High School.

Lord and West Orange coach Bob Head have history working together, as Lord served under Head during Head’s first season as head coach at Olympia High School as the defensive line coach.

It will be a bit of a David and Goliath situation, as Foundation competes at the Class 2A level and the Warriors are rising program in Class 8A — the highest classification in Florida — but Lord said that the challenge should help his team prepare for important district games later in the season, as well as get people talking about football in Winter Garden.
