Panama City Beach, FL-- In the next few nights several area prep football teams will put the wraps on three weeks of spring drills with jamboree action. For the Arnold Marlins, their jamboree comes Friday evening
Coach Hale and his guys working this spring to fill some big vacancies, namely the holes left by the departure of record setting running back Andre Allen, and safety-slash-receiver-slash quarterback Eddie Williams. All that while trying to keep things interesting during spring, and that isn't easy says coach Hale.
"Spring football especially here on this beach is tough. Other kids are going to the beach going to do something that's fun. These kids are out here working two, three hours in this heat. You have to have a special type of kid to come out here and play football in Panama City Beach, and these guys are, they're doing a good job for us."
One thing that is something to look forward to, the aforementioned jamboree, which gives the chance to hit somebody wearing a different color uniform, says Hale.
"Yeah that's one thing, they do have the chance to look for...to have a good time. We've got Rutherford for two quarters, we start at six o'clock at Tommy Oliver. They have most of their team back, I think it's gonna be a good challenge for us to see where we're at."
After Rutherford-Arnold for two quarters, it's Bay and Bozeman for a quarter, then Mosley-Bozeman for one, and Mosley and Bay in the final quarter.
