It has become an annual occurrence for the West Point junior high football teams and their fellow conference members as they met up once again on the football field for a junior high spring jamboree.
After a month of hard and competitive practices, the Junior Green Wave hit the gridiron on a cold and windy Tuesday evening in Starkville to put their talents on display against other teams. And even though the time of year is not traditionally a time for football, the players, coaches, and fans seemed more than excited to catch some pigskin action.
It is spring time! Itâ€™s time for everyone to start sticking their heads outside and enjoying the bright sun and great weather with some kind of fun activity. Whether it is watching a baseball game or taking in a round of golf or even just taking a step outside, spring is the best time to do any of these activities.
