C Team Game Added

We have added a game next week for our C team at Benedictine JV on Thursday 8/31. The game will be at the BC High Practice Field. Game time is 5PM.

Revised Schedule

Due to weather restrictions and overall player safety, we have made the decision to cancel our planned team session this week between our sub-varsity football players. Intensity levels are increased significantly during live scrimmages, and we don't want to jeopardize the safety of any of our players. We will create rosters for the 6 quarters that will be played next week against South Effingham which should also provide plenty of opportunities for evaluation.
 

Georgia high school policy regulates the use of full pads under certain weather conditions. Information on this can be found on GHSA.net. Wet bulb readings Wednesday, which are likely to repeat itself Thursday, dictated that we would not be able to wear full pads during the planned scrimmage time. We cannot scrimmage accurately in anything less than full pads.
 

We will continue with a planned varsity practice at 6 PM Thursday evening. Whether or not we can get on the field at 6 PM, and what attire we wear, will be dictated by the wet bulb readings. Please be patient as we are diligently trying to prepare our athletes while battling the elements. Thank you for your support in this matter and please help us to have every A group player at the school by 6 AM on Friday for a mandatory practice. #BuildTheHill

Team Breakdown

Moving forward our Varsity, JV and 9th grade structure and names have changed. Our teams will not be broken down by grade but by talent and experience. This will ensure that our players are getting experience against evenly matched talent. This concept is being embraced by all the teams in our region so that should make for a competitive season for all levels of play. Moving forward here's the breakdown of the new structure:

Varsity is synonymous with "A Team"

JV is now going to be called "B Team"

9th Grade is now going to be called "C Team"

These teams will be fluid throughout the upcoming season and players may dress for multiple teams. The schedule and calender will reflect these changes.
