The Apalachee High School football team will return to the field Tuesday as the countdown to the 2013 season begins in earnest.
The Wildcats, who will continue to compete in Region 8-AAAAA this fall, will have to replace several key players who will be lost to graduation.
“We probably lost more on both sides of the football as we have in a while,” said AHS head coach Shane Davis. “We have a lot of new faces we will need to look at this spring. “
The overall format for the Wildcats’ spring practice will remain the same.
“The pace of what we will be doing will probably be a little slower,” Davis said. “Still, our goal is to come out of spring with a depth chart.”
A spring scrimmage is tentatively set for Monday, May 13, although that may change.
