And while most of the returnees understand the system, Gannon said expect little unusual in the Jamboree. For example, there will be no kickoffs or punts and Gannon said the game would be a “glorified scrimmage.”

“We are not doing anything in the spring that is new or unusual,” Gannon said. “Our opponents will see a pretty vanilla playbook. We’re more interested in seeing the effort.

“Any coach would say they would like to win the spring game because you can take that has a confidence boost. But we’re looking for effort. We are looking for effort, execution and who is working hard.”

The Spring Jamboree will begin at 6:30 p.m. ET Thursday, May 16 at Shark Field. Franklin County will face Wewahitchka for two quarters and the Seahawks will play Port St. Joe for two quarters. The final two quarters will pit county rivals Wewahitchka and Port St. Joe.
