“We are hot,” Jefferson head coach Bill Navas said. “Not cool, but hot.”
Whether Navas is referring to the weather, or to the team, as well, remains to be seen. The Jefferson Dragons are on the field, sweating and getting ready for the first kickoff of the 2008 football season.
Jefferson started practices Friday afternoon. According to Navas there are not any star players, yet, but as the team gets more practices in before the first game that is sure to change. The Dragons have moved up into 8-AA this season and will face Morgan County in a scrimmage game August 21. The opener for the team is against rival Commerce in what is sure to be a big game.
Navas said, about playing Commerce, “After playing in that game, we have played in any big game. It is a benefit for both schools.”
Until that first game, the Dragons will be out practicing in the heat to be ready to go under the lights.
