LEBANON - The Gallatin Green Wave traveled to Wilson County this week to take on the Lebanon Blue Devils in their final preseason scrimmage before Friday night's first look jamboree at Green Wave Stadium.
The Wave wrap a solid offseason against Franklin County High School on August 11, 6:00 p.m.
Plenty of varsity and junior varsity action filled the near two-hour scrimmage as both the first team and second team scored touchdowns for the Wave.
Admission for Friday night's scrimmage will be $5 per person and will consist of two quarters of varsity, junior varsity, and freshman action.
Gallatin will use the scrimmage as a dress rehearsal to prepare for week one action against Springfield.
Everything from bussing to the stadium to pregame warm-ups and post-game handshakes will be done as if Friday night's scrimmage was a real game.
"Every year when we go in this is a dress rehearsal for us as we prepare for the first week of the season," Gallatin coach Mark Williams said. "We want our units to go out there quickly and crisply. For us coaches it is the first time we will have on our headsets so you want communication from the box to the field as clean as possible.
"We want players where they are supposed to be, especially on special teams. This is a great opportunity for us to tweak things before the opening game. The biggest thing we want is our players to get out healthy."
The Green Wave will face Franklin County, a team that is very similar to their Week 1 opponent, Springfield.
"You certainly hope you will see some of the same things," Williams said. "Springfield runs an offense that requires you to be disciplined just like Franklin County. They are also a team that has a lot of fight in them and they are coached well.
"They are a wing-t offense and that always presents problems in itself for your defense. They are a team that has a lot of fight in them and a team that is coached well. They will be physical."
