DECATUR, Ala. - The Decatur High School football team's fall practices continue this week as well, and the Red Raiders will be one of the first teams we see this high school season as they kick off their season next Thursday, August 22 against Huntsville at Milton Frank Stadium.
The team had their "Meet the Raiders" scrimmage Thursday afternoon giving fans a sneak peek of what's to come this season, but luckily Decatur fans won't have to wait long to see the real action as the season is less than a week away from kicking off.
"They've handled it really well they moved around well their attention to detail is getting better, it's never great with teenagers, but it's getting better, said Decatur head coach Jere Adcock. "Defense is our most seasoned group and again there's a lot of new faces and a lot of youth. They've been going against each other all spring, so now they have to turn around and get ready for a completely different offense, defense. kicking game all of it."
