|Rains damper practice|
Rains dampened practices around the parish early this week as teams continue prepping for the upcoming season.
"We really needed to get outside," said Vidalia coach Dee Faircloth, whose team worked out in the gym on the first day teams could put on the pads. "A player can look completely different when you put the pads on. That's when you have guys move up a spot. It makes it tough on us, but we're working on plays and sets in the gym until we can get back outside."
Vidalia will scrimmage at Jena on Aug. 22. The Vikings host their annual jamboree on Aug. 30 with Tensas Parish facing Block for two quarters beginning at 7 p.m., followed by Vidalia against Delhi Charter.
Huntington beat the rain Friday in a controlled scrimmage with Tensas Academy.
Tensas is playing eight-man football this season and the Chiefs manned 11 players on defense against Huntington, while Hounds had eight players on defense with Tensas had the ball.
Huntington scored on several possessions, holding Tensas without a score.
Jeremy Randall had three touchdowns and Joey Roberts was 6-of-9 passing, most to Tyler Pere.´
"We got what we wanted out of it," said Huntington coach Chad Harkins. "Joey did a good job and all our backs ran hard. Our defense did a good job."
Huntington will be competing in the Columbia Jamboree Friday.
The Hounds face Wayne Academy at 6:30 p.m. and take on Amite School Center at 7:30 p.m.
Each contest will have two 20-minute quarters with a continuous clock until last the last minutes.

Ferriday is scrimmaging Natchez High on Aug. 22 at Tom Williams Stadium in Natchez. The scrimmage will follow scrimmages between Cathedral and Pointe Coupee and Block and Wilkinson County.
"We'll have 50 plays on offense and 50 plays on defense," said Ferriday coach Freddie Harrison. "I want to see a lot of hustle and people competing and we certainly don't want to come out of it with any injuries."
Ferriday will host a jamboree on Aug. 30 beginning at 5 p.m. with Peabody taking on Richwood in two 12-minute halves before Ferriday takes on Washington-Marion in two 12-minute halves.
"We've got a lot of competition going on for different positions, but that's good because it pushes the guys," Harrison said. "Competition brings out the best in everybody."
