There was little about Friday’s football game between West Charlotte and A.L. Brown that didn’t somehow connect to West Charlotte football coach Mo Collins, who died Sunday at age of 38.

Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera said the team has not heard officially whether defensive end Greg Hardy’s domestic violence trial will take place next month or be postponed until after the season. But he says Hardy should be allowed to return to the field.

Charlotte Catholic beat Ardrey Kell 38-34 with a 21-yard touchdown pass with 8 seconds left in the game.

With Duke traveling to Pittsburgh, North Carolina at Miami and Georgia Tech hosting Virginia, we’ll know a lot more about contenders and pretenders in the ACC’s Coastal Division by the time this week is over.
