Maroon Tide pre-season drills continue

by Carey Meitzler

The Picayune Maroon Tide entered their third day of drills as they look ahead to their opener

on Friday, August 19th, against Gulfport in the second game of the Shrimp Bowl Classic at

Gulfport's Milner Stadium.  The first game of the Shrimp Bowl pits Pascagoula taking on Biloxi

at 6:00pm with the Picayune-Gulfport game to follow at approximately 8:30pm.

Head Coach Dodd Lee and his staff have approximately 60 players taking part in the practices. 

At the end of the Friday morning practice, former player C.J. Wilson challenged Head Coach

Dodd Lee in a 40 yard sprint.  Wilson pulled away with the victory, but in Lee's defense, he

slipped on the wet field a few yards into the race.

Former player C.J. Wilson (red shirt) races to the finish line in front of Coach Lee.
