Lakeside fall practice underway

By Josh Beavers

This is the final in a set of brief looks at Webster Parish’s four high school football teams. The Lakeside Warriors are looking to restart momentum halted by a fragmented 2020 schedule.

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

PRESEASON PRACTICES – Began Monday at 5 p.m.

SCRIMMAGE – at Lakeview on August 20. 6 pm.

JAMBOREE — The Warriors will be one of five teams participating in the annual jamboree. The other teams are Minden, 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 Magnolia School of Excellence, September 3 at 7 p.m.

NOTES: Lakeside is looking to build upon the momentum it had to end the 2019 season. The Warriors had a rough go last year due in part to a loss of seniors from the 2019 squad that won the school’s first playoff game. There also was a great deal of uncertainty, starting and stopping, cancellations, quarantine, and general disorganization in the 2020 campaign due to the Covid pandemic. Lakeside Head Coach Mike Santelices said offseason work was encouraging and beneficial to the athletes, and the Warriors are ready for a full campaign.
