Sports are cranking up at Marshall Academy
The smell of the night air, the glare from the lights glowing, the sound of helmets hitting and pads crushing - it must be football season!
Marshall Academy hosted West Memphis Christian Academy Saturday morning for a preseason scrimmage. The field was full of pumped up players on both sides.
What I thought would be a quarter or two of football wound up being an entire morning event. The boys played their hearts out and even though the score wasn’t being shown on the board, it was obvious the Patriots came out on top!
They have another scrimmage Saturday at Ole Miss against Falkner, with the regular season cranking up Friday, Aug. 23.
Be sure to go out and support all of your local teams in not only football, but softball and soccer, as well. They’ve all worked so hard all summer to have productive seasons!
