For the first time ever, Great Bend hosted a football jamboree with Hoisington and Scott Community High Schools.
The jamboree is a preseason gathering of three or four schools to scrimmage against each other.
In the past, most schools would hold a soap scrimmage. In a soap scrimmage, the varsity side would line up against the junior varsity. For a jamboree, two school’s varsity teams would face each other for a set number of plays.
This format gives a coach a chance to see his team against different competition for the first time in a season. The players also get some idea of how they are performing as they head into their first game week.
Below are some of the pictures I took at the game:
