    In Hillsborough County we have started to make a big push for these type of jamboree's before the actual "spring game". It's a great opportunity to for the kids to gain more experience and develop technique and to assist with recruitment and development of officials.

    The higher ups in the state of KY need to start embracing the fact high school football is becoming the way most of the student athletes are continuing their athletic and educational careers.
