|Ferriday, Vidalia in scrimmages|
Ferriday High and Vidalia High will be involved in scrimmages this week before hosting their own jamborees on August 30.
Ferriday High will compete in a scrimmage at Natchez High.
Cathedral and Pointe Coupee kick off the scrimmages at 5 p.m., followed by Block against Wilkinson County.
Ferriday faces Natchez High in the nightcap.
Admission is $5.
Natchez High head coach Lance Reed said the scrimmages will consist of 15 plays starting at the opponents' 25-yard line for the varsity units, five plays at the 25 for junior varsity, 15 plays beginning at the opponents' 45-yard line varsity and five junior varsity and 10 plays inside the opponents' 10-yard line.
"We're going to be looking for a solid effort out of our kids and see who wants to play football," said Ferriday coach Freddie Harrison. "We want to make sure our young kids get a chance to showcase what they have. We're down to 31 players now and it's going to be a task for us to try and perform to the best of our ability and at a high level."
"We look forward to facing Ferriday," Reed said." Coach Harrison does a good job and we'll see how we match up against them physically and if we can stay with their speed. I'm anxious to see how we will compete."
Vidalia High will scrimmage at Jena High at 6 p.m.
"We want to see who can play and who can't play," said Vidalia coach Dee Faircloth. "It will be good for the kids to hit somebody else besides ourselves. We don't do too good a job of that, we beat each other up."
Jena is coached by former Vidalia standout Bernie Cooley.
"We'll get to see where we are at conditioning-wise and how much work we need to do on our tackling and blocking."
Vidalia and Ferriday both host jamborees August 30, with Ferriday's kicking off at 5 p.m., while Vidalia's will kick off at 7 p.m.
Richwood, Farmerville and Washington-Marion will be in Ferriday's jamboree, while Block, Tensas Parish and Delhi Charter will compete in Vidalia.
Ferriday opens its season at Sept. 5 at Madison Parish, while Vidalia visits Block.
