Last Friday, a football “jamboree” was held in Salina, Kansas. This was the first time North hasn’t had many chances to scrimmage before the season starts. Since offseason started in the summer, they have been trying their hardest and they’ve been building that up for their very first game of the season later this week, Friday.

 Hays, Abilene, and Salina South were also participating in the jamboree as well.

According to some of the players, the scrimmage went great and it was fun.

“ It was very fun, and I had a great time, chemistry was great, and I felt like we became closer as a family, and I can’t wait for this season,” sophomore Adrion Kaspar said.

“ It was a great learning experience, and it’s a good way to get ready for the season and I’m happy that I was apart of it,” Senior Trey Mitchell said.

According to the offense of line coach Mitch Kucera, the scrimmage was a great opportunity.

“ It was helpful to get live action against quality teams. We did a few things well and saw that there are some areas that need improving. It was a great opportunity to gauge how far we’ve become as a team,” Kucera said.
