|Vidalia begins spring drills|
After taking care of the small details of finding extra helmets, taking care of players who didn't take care of their paperwork and getting practice jerseys for those players who failed to get some earlier, Gary Paul Parnham hit the field Monday at Dee Faircloth Viking Stadium for the first time as Viking head coach.
"It was a little hectic at first, but after we settled down and got into our first session we had a good practice," Parnham said. "It felt good to be out there."
It was the first spring football for Vidalia since 2001.
Parnham worked with running backs early, while assistants coaches Bo Sproles, Denny Hinson, Graham Roberts and Damus Smith worked with other positions.
"We went over drills and techniques," Parnham said.
About 42 players participated in the drills. Several are still in baseball.
"I am very impressed with our eighth-grade group coming up," Parnham said. "They jumped in there and showed a lot of excitement."
Dee Faircloth announced his retirement in December and Parnham, who served as an assistant to Faircloth for 17 years, was named head coach last month.
Parnham graduated from Vidalia High in 1987 after outstanding careers in football and baseball.
Parnham is scheduling a Blue-White intrasquad game on May 8.
"We're going to make it a fun event out of it," Parnham said. "We'll set up a draft to pick the teams."
Parnham said the spring drills will help prepare for the summer workouts.
"I know they will forget some stuff, but when we start back up in the summer it will jog their memory," Parnham said. "They are basically learning a new system."
Ferriday will begin spring football drills today (Wednesday).
The Trojans will also be under a new head coach after Freddie Harrison accepted the head coaching job at Washington-Marion last month.
Assistant coaches James Davis, Cleothis Cummings and Walter Johnson will lead the Trojans during the spring, which will last about 10 days. Ferriday will play at Delhi Charter on May 14.
