Practice kicks off today

Andrew Jackson High School got the jump on its prep football counterparts as high school preseason practice opens today around the state.
The Volunteers didn’t waste any time in getting started. Just after midnight, AJ hit the field for its opening practice of the season – Volunteer Midnight Madness.
“This is something we do to give our players a boost as they open practice,” AJ coach David Moore said. “I think it creates excitement in the community.”
