West Point will be one of 10 teams on hand Saturday at Mississippi Stateâ€™s Davis Wade Stadium to provide a little preview of whatâ€™s to come for the 2011 football season.
Hosted by New Hope High School, the jamboree kicks off at 11 a.m. when the two-time defending 5A state champions Green Wave take on Louisville. The two teams, once long time rivals on the field, havenâ€™t met since 2006.
Head coach Chris Chambless said it gives the team a chance to get accustomed to the game-day operations throughout the season.
