West Point Green Wave fans will get their first look at this seasonâ€™s edition of the team with a Saturday afternoon scrimmage.
West Point faces defending Mississippi High School Activities Association (MHSAA) Class-3A state champion Louisville Wildcats at 3 p.m. at Scott Field in Starkville. The scrimmage is a part of the New Hope High School fall jamboree, which boasts six different match-ups, beginning with a scrimmage between Philadelphia and Aberdeen at 9 a.m.
Last year, Louisville stunned West Point with a 35-14 victory in the two-quarter scrimmage.
West Point Head Coach Chris Chambless said he and his coaching staff are hoping to utilize the scrimmage to get as many players on the film as possible.
â€śItâ€™s going to be hard to get a lot of people on the field in two quarters,â€ť Chambless said. â€śWe need to see what we got. And we want to see different combinations of people on the field. Itâ€™s a test on doing the little things right. We want the kids to play hard and have fun. â€ť
