Preparing for the season

Speed, agility and conditioning are being put to the test at the City of Greer’s Youth Football Clinic this week, offering instruction for aspiring athletes ages 6-13.

The Parks and Recreation Department puts on the free camp each year, and athletics coordinator David Holtzclaw said there has already been strong interest.  

Greer Post 115 bouncing back

After wins over Spartanburg (3-2), Shelby (13-3) and Steubenville (12-0) last week, the Greer American Legion Post 115 senior team is riding some momentum heading into an important stretch of games.

Greer will face Gaffney, Union and Spartanburg again this week, hoping to improve its chances for a playoff berth.

Running back Adrian McGee came on strong for the Yellow Jackets last season, and his coach is looking for bigger and better things in 2015.

After finishing the 2014 regular season undefeated, the Greer High football team is planning a deep playoff run this fall. With several standout players returning to key positions, that goal could be attainable.
