The unbeaten Knights warmed up for practice with Christmas music blaring over the loudspeakers. The players were loose, and confident. All fully aware they're playing mighty Martinsburg, a team that's won 7 state titles since 2010.

Cabell Midland coach Luke Salmons said this edition of the Knights is a "special group" and said his team is raring to go for the Saturday noon matchup.
