Byhalia High School hosts ‘Meet the Indians’
By CLAUDE VINSON
Before a modest crowd of onlookers on Friday evening, head coach Markeith Washington unveiled his warriors for the coming football season.
He told the Byhalia faithful what to expect and what not to expect. The Indians have moved up to Class 4A and will naturally face stiffer competition throughout the fall. He urged the fans to continue their support and buy into the “ownership” of the team.
“We are going to need your help to have a successful season,” he said.
He then set up the evening’s activity on the field and introduced his new assistants – Larry Johnson, Jr., offensive coordinator; Mike Jenne, administrative assistant; Skylar Huff, running backs; O.M Echols, offensive/defensive lines; Chris Podewils, linebackers; and John Danley, defensive coordinator.
The team took the field and delighted the spectators with a “Red and White” scrimmage. The exercise, although controlled by on-field members of the coaching staff, didn’t pull any punches. The blocking, tackling and rushing were real. The Indians exhibited the results of summer preparations.
Coach Washington, in his second season at Byhalia, will give the Indians their first real competitive test at Independence this Friday, Aug. 14. They will meet Hernando for a couple of quarters in the jamboree.
They will then open their season at Booker T. Washington in Memphis on Friday, Aug. 21.
