Even Simon Holcomb was a little bit wide-eyed Monday afternoon. In a dry, overcast, and only moderately hot air at Coal Mountain, the new-look North Forsyth football team didn't have anything other than the elements between their ears to worry about, but that doesn't mean they were without worry as the first day of spring practice was underway. Players were sprinting from drill to drill, switching from play to play and if they weren't in a huddle they needed to be in a huddle somewhere else.
