HAVANA, Fla. (WTXL) - High school football teams across the state of Florida were on the field Wednesday in what marked the halfway point of the first week of spring practice. East Gadsden has one goal as spring practice rolls on, and that's to take a step up off last year's 1-8 season.

That record is not something that head coach Corey Fuller wanted in his first year back as head coach, but he noted that as the season progressed, there was a definite improvement in his team.

He said so far this spring, the kids are working hard and right now, they are focusing on getting back to basics. As far as holes the Jaguars have to fill? Qwuantrezz Knight is the big one, who signed with Maryland, but Fuller said he has a lot of young and talented kids waiting in the wings and ready to go.

"They're coming up on top of this hill ready to work, with a working mentality," he said Wednesday. "They're on time, they're on the field at 3:05 like I told them to be. I'm going to show them before the end of the summer, all the games we played in and let them see the mistakes we made that cost us close games. If you go back and look, we went from scoring 10 points, then we got up to about 15, then we got up in the 20's and we stayed there for the rest of the games. We just have to build off the way we ended last year."

East Gadsden hosts Jefferson County May 20th for their spring finale.
