Spring football offers a glimpse to 2013 season for area squads The last three weeks has eased some of the hunger pains of the gridiron crazies around the area, myself included. Spring football at Bay High, Hancock, Pass Christian and St. Stanislaus gave many of us our first glimpse into what the 2013 season may or may not hold for the area.
We got our first looks at possible new alignments and schemes on both the offensive and defensive sides of the football. We got to lay our eyes upon the possible stars of the area on the gridiron each Friday night. And, we got our first look at who is stepping into the shoes of our favorite departed players.
