Dalton High School junior quarterback Payton Veraldi slips past Gilmer’s Noah Wilson during Dalton’s 31-0 win against the Bobcats on Sept. 20 at Harmon Field. Veraldi and sophomore Jase Chastain have shared time behind center for the Catamounts this season, but with Chastain injured, Veraldi is likely to play a bigger role Friday against Ridgeland.
