Middle school football sees higher participation

South and West middle schools have started fall practices,  and the two teams have a total of around 110 players. That number is up from recent years and a good sign of interest in football.

South Middle School football players gather in a huddle of both seventh and eighth graders Wednesday before drills. The Apaches have stronger numbers this season between the two grades. Wednesday was the final day of practicing without pads. Today, contact drills will begin.
