  • Spring football

    The annual spring football scrimmage is upon us and will be this Thursday at Ingles Stadium beginning at 6 p.m.  This is actually more of an open practice. It’s designed to wrap up spring practice with a game to let the young people display their talents as a reward for the hard work that they have put in during the spring.  
    There are a good number of young men, including several eighth graders, who will be freshmen next school year attending practice and working hard to meet some goals established by the coaching staff.
