Vidalia High began spring football practice Monday.

“Things went a lot smoother than I was expecting,” said Viking head coach Mike Norris. 

Norris welcomed 29 players. Vidalia’s baseball team ended its season on Monday.

“We had a good number for the spring,” Norris said.

The Vikings will end spring drills on Monday, May 6 with a scrimmage against East Feliciana at 7 p.m.

Having a scrimmage gives the guys something to look forward to,” Norris said.

Jefferson County was also going to participate, but pulled out.

The scrimmage will end with a running clock over one half.

“We’re looking to fill in spots and clean some things up,” Norris said. “We have qo ninth-graders and a few may be able to help us next season. We’re teaching them how to do things the Vikings way.”

Ferriday High and Delta Charter will not hold spring football practice, opting to start a week earlier in August.
