Sardis prepares for new-look Locust Fork team

The Sardis Lions scored a school-record 68 points and rolled up 621 yards total offense in a 68-48 victory over Locust Fork in last season’s Class 4A, Region 6 opener.

“That game lasted three hours and 30 minutes. We should’ve got paid overtime for that one,” said Sardis head coach Gene Hill. “It’s the longest game I’ve ever been a part of. It was a shootout.” kAmw:== 5@6D?’E 6IA64E 2 D9@@E@FE H96? E96 {:@?D 2?5 w@C?6ED 4@==:56 uC:52J ?:89E 2E $2C5:D $E25:F> :?
