Jackets prepare by playing 7-on-7

BY BRETT VOSS
The early bird gets the worm. And Meridian Yellowjacket football plans to do just that, beginning with a summer 7-on-7 league in Hico every Tuesday night in June. “I believe that 7-on-7 is absolutely vital at this level,” Meridian football head coach Chris Roberts said. “With the UIL not allowing 2A-4A schools to have spring practices, I think that you have to play 7-on-7 to get back into that football mode before August.”
