Tribe football kicks off soon

Coach Sean McNabb announces practice schedule for the next few weeks

Scappoose High football coach Sean McNabb is expecting a big turnout this season and with the first game looming in just over three weeks, practices have been slated.

McNabb said he took 63 players, sophomores through seniors, to football camp at Camp Rilea over the summer. There were 10 schools holding camp there, some teams from Canada and others 5A or 6A from Oregon. He anticipates a few more kids to turn out for the team. There are also an additional 30 freshman that will play.

Before practices begin, McNabb said a meeting will be held with all parents at 6 p.m., Aug. 11 in the Scappoose High gym. This is to let parents know all the requirements for players to practice or play in games.

Spirit Week Camp is slated for Aug. 15-18 with sessions from 8-10 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. Attendance is not compulsory.

Official practices begin Aug. 22 with Two-A-Days from 9 a.m.-noon and 2-5 p.m. McNabb noted the first hour of practice will be devoted to team meetings, and watching films.

Freshmen will practice on Aug. 15, 17, and 19 from 5-7 p.m., and from Aug. 22 on from 5-7 p.m.

Picture day, followed by a scrimmage, and barbecue will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Aug. 27.

The team will practice from 3-6 p.m. every day thereafter-from 3-4 p.m. in the classroom and 4-6 p.m. on the field. Their first game is Friday, Sept. 2 at Molalla.

'We only have nine (official) practices before our first game,' McNabb said. 'We don't have a lot of time to worry about people not getting their paperwork in.'

McNabb said the summer camp went well. 'The kids had a great experience. It accomplished what it was meant to accomplish. We came together as a group and did a great job.'
