The Knights got away from the grass and hash marks Friday to wind up their first week of football practice. The beach at Nichols Park was put to use as the Knights went through their drills under the watchful eyes of the coaches. Following a couple of hours of workouts, they cooled down with a short swim then paired off into a couple of teams for volleyball. The Knights will be holding their first scrimmage here Aug. 18 then host Eufaula's Ironheads in the season opener Aug. 25.
