The Long County High School Touchdown Club recently held its monthly meeting to begin preparing for the upcoming football season.
During the meeting, the group decided to purchase two practice shirts for each of the coaches. Emma Strickland brought up the idea and told the attendees that the total cost for the shirts would be no more than $280.
Ricky Toledo also suggested that the booster club spend up to $1,000 to buy practice shields and dummies for the team. Both measures passed unanimously. Toledo also reported that the Long County Board of Education bought 20 weightlifting bars for the team, replacing some that were unserviceable.
The group agreed to pay a $200 fee to clubs that work the concession stands during games.
David Holton reported that Blue Tide head coach Ron Flott said about 40 players are participating in summer workouts, and seven-on-seven drills have been going well. Holton said parents should be aware that Powerade is being provided to all players during workouts.
Adrian Stock reported that the team’s water cow had been repaired and said a skylight on the team’s trailer is being repaired by Ronnie Smiley, who will be reimbursed for the materials he purchases.
The TD Club meets the second Tuesday of every month during the off-season and once a week on Tuesdays during football season. The meetings are at Smiley Elementary School. The officers for the upcoming year are President David Holton, Vice President Kim Stock, treasurer Emma Strickland and secretary Ricky Toledo.
