ACCS prepare for jamboree

NATCHEZ — David King sought after a real test for his Adams County Christian School in today’s jamboree. The head coach believes he found it in the form of a public 4A school and a private 3A team in today’s jamboree.

ACCS will kick things off against Raymond High School at 4:30 p.m. today at Mississippi College in Clinton, and King hopes to see his team perform well against a much bigger team.

“Raymond High School is historically a very athletic public school,” King said. “I always like playing people that we never played before. It will be fun for our kids.”

King, whose ACCS Rebels won 10 games last season, was not pleased with his 2014 squad’s performance in a scrimmage against 4A competitor Mississippi-Ridgeland Academy last weekend.

“We were sloppy,” King said. “Let me put it this way — the only thing that looked good out there was the green grass. We were out of sync, and we found out that we are not ready.”

King said he’s looking for more effort and team leadership, and he hopes to see his players step up in the trenches.
