|Vidalia to hold spring game|
Vidalia High will end spring drills with a Blue-White intrasquad scrimmage Saturday at 2 p.m., while Ferriday High continues practice in preparation for a scrimmage at Delhi Charter on May 14.
Vidalia High first-year head football coach Gary Paul Parnham said a draft will be held to split the teams up and the coaches will split up to coach the squads.
Admission to the game is $3.
"It should be competitive and a lot of fun," Parnham said. "The baseball boys began practicing Monday. We'll have a few surprises. We may even kick an extra point."
Parnham, who replaces longtime Viking coach Dee Faircloth who retired last December, said he has been pleased with most of the practices.
"The kids have been getting after it and practicing hard," he said. "We're not putting in our whole offense, but they've bought into what we've given them. And it's the same way with the defense. We'll have a different look."
Parnham is being assisted by Bo Sproles, Denny Hinson, Graham Roberts, Chuck DeWeese and Damus Smith.
Meanwhile, down the road, Ferriday High interim head football coach James Davis and assistants Cleothis Cummings and Walter Johnson are in their second week of drills.
"We had a good offseason, the guys stayed in the weight room and several ran track, which they really benefited from," Davis said. "This is one of the first years where we actually have more offensive linemen than any other position. We have an abundance of offensive and defensive linemen which is a plus for us in that guys can go one way."
Davis said the team is going through basic fundamentals and next week will put in a game plan for its scrimmage at Delhi Charter which will be Friday, May 14.
"We're just making sure they are doing what they are supposed to do," Davis said.
Ferriday is seeking a new coach after Freddie Harrison accepted a head coaching job at Washington-Marion last month.
