TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A lot of high school football teams are looking to get sized for rings come December, but right now, it's all about camp.  

The Rickards Raiders are looking to improve off last year's 5-5 season, where they dropped five straight after opening up the year on a five game win streak. 

Last year, Rickards was young in a lot of places, but this season, that youth is a little older and they're still looking for a solid quarterback. 

They have a week and a half to figure things out. Rickards plays a good Carol City squad in pre-season and Head Coach Quintin Lewis says they're ready for the challenge. 

"We have probably the toughest district in the state of Florida with Godby and Wakulla. Getting into those types of games so they can ready for other games down the road. Carol City will be a great opponent, very fast, very aggressive," said Lewis. "We can't turn over the football. I think these guys are ready, they're up for the challenge, they look forward to it every year now, we just have to stay injury free."  

That game with Carol City, is set for August 18 at 8 p.m. at Bragg Memorial Stadium.
