Ferriday High head football coach Freddie Harrison told his seniors they are experiencing their final summer of high school football and to make the best of it.
"The summer is flying by and now I am preaching to them about this being their last season," he said. "Before they know it, the season will be over with. I want them to take advantage of every opportunity to make this the best season they ever had."
One bit of good news for Trojan players is that they will be moving into their new fieldhouse next week.
"We'll be moving weights in next Monday and Tuesday and hopefully be in there by next weekend," Harrison said. "It's hectic right now with practice, moving and school starting."
Harrison will also receive more help in the form of assistant coaches as Damien Huren and Eddie White, teammates of Harrison on the Louisiana Swashbuckler arena football team, will join current assistants C.C. Cummings and James Davis.
Ferriday will scrimmage Natchez on August 22 at Natchez High at 8 p.m., following scrimmages between Cathedral and Pointe Coupee and Block and Wilkinson County.
Ferriday will host a jamboree on Aug. 30 with Peabody taking on Richwood at 5 p.m., followed by Ferriday against Washington-Marion at 7 p.m.
Huntington will host Tensas Academy Friday at 6 p.m. in a scrimmage.
Tensas is playing eight-man football this season. The Chiefs will line up 11 on defense against the Hounds, while Huntington will have eight on defense.
"Coach (Joe) Coats called me and asked about scrimmaging or otherwise he would have to travel about two hours," said Huntington coach Chad Harkins. "Since we don't play them this year this will be a good opportunity for us. They have worked with us in the past and we're glad to be able to work with them."
Harkins said there are several areas he will be playing close attention to at the scrimmage.
"(Senior) Joey Roberts is playing quarterback for the first time and we'll be able to see how he handles that with people coming at him," Harkins said. "We have some new guys on the offensive line and seven or eight kids who will be starting for the first time at different positions."
Harkins said there are 16 players on the junior varsity team. The junior Hounds will compete in a jamboree at Amite School Center on Aug. 21.
Huntington will hold Meet the Hounds on August 18 at 6 p.m. followed by a booster club fish fry.
Vidalia High continues with its drills and conditioning. The Vikings will scrimmage at Jena on Aug. 21 and 22.
Vidalia will scrimmage at Jena on August 12 or August 22 before hosting its annual jamboree on August 30 with Block, Delhi Charter and Tensas Parish competing along with the Vikings.
