Teams prepare for season with jamboree games

By Daniel Brunty The Winston County Journal

With the 2012-13 football season beginning this Friday, many local teams participated in jamborees this past week to prepare for it.

Most jamboree games are played for two quarters, with no score being recorded. They allow for teams to give their players real-time game experience going into the regular season of play.

The Louisville Tigers played their jamboree game against Class 5A powerhouse McComb this past Saturday. The Noxapater Tigers played Calls 3A Choctaw Central. The Nanih Waiya Warriors played Class 2A Lake, while the Winston Academy Patriots faced off against Heritage Academy.

Jamboree games allow for most coaches to see the areas of concentration they need to work on, as well as the strong suites of their players. This gives them time to work on those things before the start of the season.
