Madison Central head coach Bobby Hall will once again have his guys thinking playoffs in 2012.
The Jaguars finished last season with an 11-3 record.
They were able to finally get past South Panola in the playoffs before losing to eventual champ Olive Branch in the 6A North title game.
Coach Hall must replace Drew Rowell at quarterback, but the backfield should be strong with Brandon Moore and Daniel Goodspeed leading the way.
The season fires up August 17 against Olive Branch.
Hall says it can't get here soon enough.
"Yeah, I love it. Next to Christmas it's the best time of the year. Really hot and humid. Had a great first day. Really proud of the guys. We had some hydration issues but you expect that. The heat index is about 108 right now. Had a really good first day. I think we've got a chance to be a really good football team," said Hall.
