Pigskin Preview Cancelled Due to Weather

— Before they got started, high school teams around the state were hit with a play delay.

There was supposed to be a sneak peek at the 7th Annual Pigskin Preview on Saturday but thunderstorms rolled into Raleigh and washed away all the fun.

Twelve high school teams were scheduled to scrimmage in the event.

Thanks to Mother Nature, players and coaches went home a little disappointed -- but safe.
