Only one day remains of 2008 spring football drills at Stephenville High School. The Yellow Jackets complete spring ball with the second Blue vs. Gold Spring Game at Tarleton’s Memorial Stadium Friday.
The junior varsity Jackets will kickoff the action at 5 p.m. followed by the varsity at 6 p.m.
New Head Coach Joseph Gillespie said the 2008 roster is far from final, and that some student-athletes playing on the varsity Friday may not be on the season-opening roster in August.
The scrimmage will be the first public viewing of SHS football under Gillespie. He replaced Chad Morris in February.
In conjunction with the event, the Varsity Moms are hosting a hamburger dinner for $5 a plate, which includes all the trimmings, drink and desert. Proceeds will help fund the Friday Night Lights video of the Jackets.
The Stephenville Athletic Booster Club will have 2007-08 Yellow Jacket merchandise on sale at reduced cost. The boosters will also be signing up new members. The club is currently in the beginning stages of its 2008-09 membership drive.
