If you listen closely you can hear the sounds of whistles blowing, coaches yelling and helmets colliding around the county.
High school football practice started this week.
Beginning his first season with Andrews, Scott Durham has already got some work in with his new players.
“We’ve had six or seven sessions were we’ve been able to get out on the field and do some stuff.”
Durham is looking to improve on last year’s 2-9 record.
The Yellow Jackets will scrimmage at Wilson on Aug. 10 and at home against Cane Bay on Aug. 20, and compete in the jamborees at Carvers Bay on Aug. 17 and Hemingway on Aug. 23.
For the second year in a row, Georgetown coach Bradley Adams will have the Bulldogs on the practice field tonight at midnight.
Georgetown finished last season 6-5.
The Bulldogs scrimmage at Darlington on Aug. 9 and host Carolina Forest on Aug. 13 at 10 a.m., before playing Mullins in the Carvers Bay jamboree on Aug. 17.
Carvers Bay and Waccamaw will scrimmage on Aug. 9 at 6 p.m. at Big Bear Stadium. The Bears will host a three-team scrimmage with Hannah-Pamplico and Mullins on Aug. 13 at 6 p.m., and face Manning in the Marlboro County jamboree on Aug. 16.
Along with all four county teams, the annual Carvers Bay jamboree on Aug. 17 will also feature Kingstree, Mullins, Hemingway and Johnsonville.
Coach Nate Thompson said he hopes to start the jamboree around 7 p.m., but that could change if the heat index is too high.
After losing the first game of the season last year, Carvers Bay won nine straight to secure home field advantage in the Lower State playoffs. The Bears then lost to Hemingway in the first round.
Waccamaw is coming off a 3-8 season
Warriors coach Tyronne Davis was forced to start a lot of sophomores last year, who now have at least a year of experience under theirs belts.
“Hopefully they’ll be a little more mature this year,” Davis said.
After scrimmaging at Carvers Bay on Aug. 9, the Warriors head to Johnsonville on Aug. 16, face St. James at the Kickoff Classic on Aug. 16, and Hemingway at the Carvers Bay jamboree on Aug. 17.
