The Apalachee High School football team is going to try something a little different when it comes to spring practice this year.
The Wildcats will take advantage of something offered for the first time by the Georgia High School Association in that AHS will not have traditional spring drills. By doing so, this will enable the Wildcats to have two preseason scrimmages in August.
