GUYTON — A high degree of competitiveness was on display during Friday’s Silver-White Game at The Corral.

The intrasquad scrimmage, won by the Silver 33-14, provided a chance for every South Effingham player to step forward in their quest to earn a better spot on a team that has plenty up for grabs.

“There’s no doubt about it,” Mustangs head coach Nathan Clark said. “Nothing is set in stone for us by any means.”  

COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on South Effingham’s preparation for the season that starts Friday at home against Metter. Practice was interrupted for several days a couple weeks ago after a few players tested positive for the contagious respiratory ailment.

“We’ve only been in full pads for about a week and a half,” Clark said. “We still don’t know who can do what and tonight was a big opportunity for others to come out and play well. We saw some players who stepped up and we saw some that we’re disappointed in.”
