    After a brief grappling period to size up the visitors, Chiefland football seized the upper hand in Friday's spring matchup against Fort White. The visiting Indians were limited both in ground and air corps; the host Indians were not, and the 12-0 Chiefland final showed it. The first score came in the second quarter with a four-yard run to the goal line by Jamantye Thompson, set up first by a 25-yard run and then a 30-yard run on the keeper by starting QB Eugene Carter.

    “We're pretty thin as far as numbers – we'll dress about 37 guys and have a bunch of guys playing both ways,” he said.

    “We've been doing a lot of conditioning, though, and we're probably in as good a shape as we've been in since I've been here.”

    The crack of plastic on plastic, the thud of leather on leather, the tweet of the whistle, the shout of the coach, the panting of linemen and the drip, drip, drip of sweat. These are the sweet sounds of spring football.
