Bay High and Hancock participated in formal spring games on Friday, May 13th while Pass Christian held a "Red and White" intersquad scrimmage. SSC will not hold a scrimmage.

Spring football ends with jamboree action Football has been in the air recently for those of us who live for the smell of fresh cut grass, the life under Friday night Lights and the crisp and loud smacking of shoulder pads on an opposing player.
Recently, we had the entertaining game of the NFL Draft which was a lot more colorful this year than in years past. And, I hope to pen something about that soon.
However, the high schoolers have been in action the past two weeks with spring football training and will continue through this week before they close drills with jamboree action. May 10, 2016, 17:58
