COLUMBUS CITY LEAGUE FOOTBALL: Whetstone demolishes Africentric, 84-26



The Africentric Nubians are known for their exploits on the basketball court during the winter months.

But the football team, even with some of the basketball players a part of it, is not as good.

The Nubians were 2-8 last year and they’re 0-2 so far in 2012 after suffering an embarrassing 84-26 home loss on Friday.

Whetstone was the team that handled Africentric.
