The countdown to the start of the high school football season is now in the single digits - just 9 days until we kick it off on the prep level. Games officially get underway next Thursday night.
TV24 Sports dropped by Saks practice on Tuesday. The Wildcats are coming off a 6-5 season with high hopes for 2017. After starting 0-2 last season, Saks won six of seven games in the middle of the year. The good news is a lot of players that went through the ups and downs of 2016 are back in the fold this year including quarterback LaDerrick Bell and running backs Will Fletcher, Jonathan Cobb and Jadarris Griffin.
