A new season will begin Friday for the Apalachee High School football team against a relatively new program.
The Lanier High School Longhorns will welcome the Wildcats this Friday as both teams begin their respective 2012 campaigns. Lanier is a new program and new school. The team played four varsity games a season ago going 3-1.
“We certainly don’t have any common opponents that we can compare,” AHS coach Shane Davis said. “I am pleased with where we are. It’s time for us to play. Of course, the more you practice the better you can get, but at some point you have to put it on the line and play against someone else. The speed and intensity is so much different on Friday night.”
