After losing 18 seniors to graduation this spring, Gurdon has a lot of work to do before the 2021 season begins.

Last Tuesday, Coach Kyle Jackson brought his players to one of the more prestigious team camps in the south at Ouachita Baptist University. Big teams like Rogers, Greenwood, Fort Smith Northside, Pulaski Academy, Little Rock Christian Academy, Benton, and El Dorado were in attendance.

The Go-Devils did not have to worry about facing those teams. They faced Ozark, Magnet Cove, Haskell Harmony Grove, and Malvern’s JV. With lower numbers than usual, Gurdon competed well against all of the teams they faced.

The ground attack was the main focus at Wednesday’s camp. Defensively the Go-Devils looked really stout. Most of the starters Coach Jackson uses are guys going both ways, something Gurdon didn’t have to do last season. Conditioning this fall will be key for this young Gurdon squad.

After matching up with Magnet Cove multiple times, the conference lineup in the fall looks to be a good one. This time at Cabe Field in Go-Devil Stadium.

This Tuesday, Gurdon will be hosting their own team camp starting at 9.
