The Jefferson High School Gridiron Dragons put on a show last Thursday evening while hosting a scrimmage game against Morgan County.
Before the game head coach Bill Navas told the team that he wanted them to have a good time and to cut loose and have fun during the game.
Jefferson, who is in AA classification this year, hosted the AAA school as a prelude to the excitement of the season opener against rival Commerce.
These cross county rivals are playing only for pride this year after Jefferson moved up to 8-AA. Speculations have surfaced that the Commerce team is playing to a disadvantage due to the size of some of the players. Speculation aside, Jefferson does appear to have a marked advantage in speed and the adaptability to fill positions when needed.
