Spring football got underway this week in Bruce, Calhoun City and Vardaman.
The Rams actually got a head start beginning last Wednesday, enabling them to hit the field in full pads Monday. Vardaman Coach Justin Hollis said they decided to only go Monday-Thursday and have Friday's off, justifying the earlier start.
Bruce will conclude spring drills on May 9 with a jamboree at Vardaman featuring the Trojans, Rams and Wildcats.

Calhoun City was without a lot of their football regulars due to ongoing seasons for baseball and track teams.
