Spring football session starts
Patrick McCrary goes up for a touchdown grab in Monday’s spring practice.
Spring football session starts
Thursday, May 7. 2009
The football field was a welcome sight for a Raider team that lost its final seven games of the 2008 season.
Madison County, 2-8 last year, opened spring practice Monday with 62 players popping pads.
“Oh, yeah, it was sweet to get back out there,” coach Randell Owens said.
Some of the team’s multi-sport athletes were missing, participating in either baseball or track. Still, Madison County enjoyed a spirited first day of workouts.
“I felt that we got a lot done,” said Owens, who’s entering his sixth year at MCHS. “We were pleased with the enthusiasm of the players.”
The coach noted that the team’s lines of scrimmage “have a lot of carry-over from last season” and looked stronger physically.
The two-week practice session runs until May 15 when Madison County closes the spring with its annual Red and Gray scrimmage that evening.
Combined with 45 rising ninth graders who participated in practice sessions at the middle school last week, over 100 Madison County players will participate in spring football this year
