For the football players and coaching staff at Jonesboro-Hodge High School fun times are here again. Well, that is if you consider toiling away for several hours a day in the grueling heat of the summer to get in shape for the upcoming fall season fun.
Over sixty hopefuls to make the team descended on Caldwell-Peacock Stadium this past Monday, June 8th for the first practice of the year and like any initial practice session it was anything but fun. Exciting to be back with your teammates – yes, but fun – not by a longshot.
“Overall I was pleased with the shape most of the guys were in,” said JHHS head football coach Terrance Blankenship. “You could tell that they guys have been away for a while though and we have a lot of work ahead of us to get them ready.”
