Fall sports are gearing up at Stephens County High School, including football.
Pre-season practice for the Indian football season started earlier this month and the team will hold a scrimmage later this week.
Stephens County Indian Head Coach Travis Noland said that camp has gone very well so far.
“Outside of having to deal with a little rain, everything has gone well,” said Noland. “The kids are working extremely hard. They have been on-time; they have been well-behaved; and I feel like we are making some progress.”
Noland said that comes after players worked hard over the summer to get ready for this season.
“I feel like our conditioning is probably as good as it has been in the last five or six years,” said Noland. “We have worked extremely hard this summer and gotten a lot done on the field and off the field and we feel good about where we are right now. We just know we have a long way to go because we have a lot of inexperience. We need this scrimmage to get kids on tape and see how they play against someone else.”
The scrimmage game is this Friday night in Atlanta against St. Pius at 7:30 p.m. You will hear that scrimmage on AM 630 WNEG and wnegradio.com.
Meanwhile, the regular season starts August 30.
