Wildcats, Lions scrimmage Saturday at Prim Stadium

Football season is literally right around the corner with scrimmages starting Saturday.

Fans who traveled with the Sulphur Springs team for all 16 weeks and the incredible run for the state title should have lots to cheer about this year.

Now wait a minute, this is just a scrimmage, I am not saying this team can or can’t go 14-2 and win state. I am just saying it will be interesting to watch everything develop and see how it shakes out.


Sulphur Springs’ Jackson on Super Team

Sulphur Springs standout Bryant (Day Day) Jackson, a 6-4, 175-pound  senior safety/defensive back who was listed on the Dave Campbell Texas football Super Team second team defensive squad.

He roams both sides of the ball and may even play special teams.

Jackson has been working out at receiver and returning punt.

His contributions on defense are well known. That’s why he’s already pledged to the University of Texas heading into his senior season.
