MOUNDS VIEW HOLDS FOOTBALL SCRIMMAGE

As the 2011 Minnesota State High School League football season gets underway teams have set up scrimmages to get some live action in practice.

Coon Rapids, Mounds View,  Rosemont and Tartan all participated in a scrimmage at Mounds View High School.

Each team went through drills. After the drills were over, all four teams went to different spots on the field and scrimmaged against each other.

After that all four teams ran different series on offense and defense.

I though it was a good way for the players to get out and show their skills and go up against different teams before they start the regular season.
