MAN — The Man High School football team has completed the 2022 schedule.
Two new teams dot the schedule — one old rival and a new foe.
The Hillbillies are scheduled to host fellow Class A team Parkersburg Catholic on Oct. 21 in its annual homecoming game. The only other time Man played the Crusaders in its history was way in the 2009 Class A playoffs, resulting in a 25-20 win by Man at home.
The Billies would go on to play in the Class A state championship, falling 27-7 to Weirton Madonna in the Wheeling Super Six.
Man’s other new opponent in 2022 is Class AA Wyoming East.
The Billies the lead Warriors 8-5 in the all-time series which dates back to 1999.
Man and Wyoming East have not played each other since a two-game home-and-away series in 2018-19. Man won both of those games over the Warriors, 30-22 and 24-21.
The Billies play East on the road this fall on Sept. 23.
Wyoming East and Parkersburg Catholic replace Wheeling Central and Point Pleasant on the grid schedule. Man has gone 0-4 against those teams the last two years.
Man, which went 4-6 last season and are led by head coach Harvey Arms, is scheduled to open the 2022 season on Aug. 25 at county rival Logan.
The Billies then host Class A Mount View on Sept. 2 in Man’s annual Hall of Fame Game. Man then hosts Class AA Westside on Sept. 9 and play at 2A Mingo Central on Sept. 23.
Following the game with East, Man hits the road at Class A Buffalo on Sept. 30.
Man’s bye week is Oct. 7.
The Billies then host Class AA Independence on Oct. 14 and host Parkersburg Catholic the following week.
Man closes out on Oct. 28 at Class A Tug Valley and hosts Class AA team and county rival Chapmanville on Nov. 4 on Senior Night.
The Billies are looking for their first post-season berth since 2019 when Man was 8-3 and lost 48-16 at Bluefield in the opening round of the Class AA state playoffs.
