"It's hot, I'll say that," East Gadsden High School head football coach Scott Anderson said when asked about how spring football was going. The Jaguars, along with West Gadsden High and Robert F. Munroe, started practice May 1 and are about midway the allowed practice time.

"We've been working a lot on positions and schemes." Anderson said. He has 80 players out this spring.

The Jaguars will play a scrimmage this Friday night at 7 p.m. after the team hosts a clinic for youth league and middle school coaches that will begin at 4 p.m.

East Gadsden will play its spring game at DeFuniak Springs May 21 at 8 p.m.

Munroe under new head coach Joey Stripling has 21 players out.

"We're getting use to each other," Stripling said. "And we've been working hard. I feel my assistants are doing a fine job and the players are responding."

Munroe will play John Paul and Maclay in two jamboree quarters at Aucilla Friday night beginning at 7 p.m.

West Gadsden has 26 players out. Coach Antonio Bradwell will take his team to Florida High for a spring game May 22.
