A-J football preparing for opener

Turnout for the 2016 Anna-Jonesboro Community High School football team after a week of practice has been decent so far.

“We’re a little low on freshmen,” A-J football coach Brett Detering said.

There are 12 seniors, 9 juniors and 20 sophomores competing for starting varsity spots. There are also 15 freshmen.

The numbers are still tentative and Detering said a few prospective players are sick and some could still come out.

The 2016 preview for the team is planned in next week’s paper.

The Wildcats will try to erase a 4-5 record from last season and vie for another playoff spot after a 15-season run.

A-J plans to open its season at home against West Frankfort Friday, Aug. 26.
