WAKULLA COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - High school football teams in the state of Florida can start practicing in pads Saturday.
The Wakulla War Eagles already have a week of non-contact practice under their belts and they're ready to suit up in full pads Saturday.
Last year, Wakulla was 9-3, falling in the second round of the playoffs. The War Eagles play in one of the toughest districts in the area, arguably in the state, with Godby and Rickards.
Good thing this group has a lot of talent back. Florida State football target Keyshawn Greene is one of those guys hoping to lead Wakulla back to Orlando, and this time, leave with a ring.
Unique thing about Wakulla? These kids have grown up together and Head Coach Scott Klees says that's for better and for worse.
"We fight all the time! And argue! We as coaches are in there with them arguing with them and fighting with them. But it's a family thing, it's like your brother you grew up with," said Klees. "I have two brothers and I didn't want them to outdue me in anything. That's how we are at Wakulla. We are going to have our ups and downs but at the end of the day, we're together and we're going to get after it."
Wakulla's got a big one for game number one as they travel to Madison County to open up the season on August 24.
