Gainesville High's football team didn't seem consumed by the final score of its 28-25 scrimmage win against St. Pius. And Red Elephants coach Bruce Miller didn't seem worried about the fact that St. Pius scored twice late in their glorified practice at City Park.
Riverside Military Academy senior Alex O'Donnell knew it would be to his advantage to work diligently on getting stronger over the summer, even if he was far removed from the rest of the Eagles' football program.
North Hall High's football program has intentionally steered away from the out-of-state passing camps and clinics that draw most of the headlines during the summer. Bare bones hard work on the practice field in the morning through the Trojans' Men of Summer conditioning program, along with time in the weight room has been the staple of what continues to produce results for ninth-year coach Bob Christmas.
