The spring air was filled with cheers from the stadium stands this past Friday evening as the Banks County Middle School and High School football teams took to the gridiron for the annual spring scrimmage games. New Head Coach Biff Parson was anxious to see how the team would perform following the practice sessions over the past two weeks.
The middle school teams played two fifteen minute halves and scored touchdowns on several occasions during the scrimmage. " We were pretty pleased with how things went, a lot of young guys were on the field and have not played football before and probably one of the larger groups we have had. Hopefully in July we will be able to get all these guys back and on the same page for the fall season," said BCMS Head Coach Vince Lehotsky.
The high school players took the field for an hour and a half working the ball up and down the field. Several players stepped up into key roles and showed a glimmer of what could come n the next football season.
Coach Biff Parson has worked with the team over the past few weeks and is trying to bring together a family unity feeling amongst the players. The keys are to take care of each other and perform with excellence on and off the field. Coach Parson is still looking for leaders on the team and a few has stepped up into the role. He urges them to do right on the field and at school to set the standard for Banks County.
