Minden fall practice begins Monday

By Josh Beavers

This is the third in a set of brief looks at Webster Parish’s four high school football teams. The Minden Crimson Tide are looking to improve on last year’s quarterfinal playoff performance.

SUMMER WORKOUTS – The Tide competed in several 7 on 7 tournaments this summer and worked on strength and conditioning.

PRESEASON PRACTICES – Begin Monday, August 9. at 3:15.

SCRIMMAGE – at Benton on August 20. 6 pm.

JAMBOREE — The Tide will be one of five teams participating in the annual jamboree. The other teams are Lakeside, North Webster, Homer, and the host – Haynesville. The event will be held in Haynesville on August 27. Games begin at 7 p.m.

FIRST GAME — At home against Parkway. September 3 at 7 p.m.

NOTES: Tide Coach Spencer Heard said the team made progress over the summer. One area of concern was in the secondary, but positive strides were made during the summer competition. He also mentioned the positive progression of senior starting quarterback Andrew Cooper who will be calling signals following a career on the defensive side of the ball at linebacker.
