Work pays off as Chapel Hill rips South Granville

It was almost as if Chapel Hill defensive backs coach Cornell Lamb knew. During pre-game practice he had his crew working a fumble drill, and the preparation came in exceedingly handy for cornerback Austin Turner. The senior first-year defensive starter broke the game wide open with a 43-yard touchdown return to help the Tigers upend a scrappy South Granville team that was giving them fits throughout the first half, 24-6.
