From NBC12 News

DINWIDDIE, VA (NBC12) - Dinwiddie High School's football team is in Blacksburg this weekend for the state finals.

The team will take on undefeated Phoebus at Lane Stadium Saturday.

That game starts at noon.

NBC12 was in Dinwiddie on Friday.

Students, faculty and staff gathered to give their star players an excited send-off.

Even parents came out and gathered in the front lawn of the high school holding signs and cheering.

"It's really exciting, I'm so proud of them," said Dinwiddie senior Kelsey Hartle. "It's crazy, no one wants to participate in class cause they're so excited about the game. A lot of people are going down today so its just so exciting."

Students got out of school early Friday so they too could make the trip to Blacksburg and support their team.

Local businesses donated signs to show their support as well.
