Receivers had big night

Mason Ledford outjumps a Fulton defender to make a catch on a long pass during Thursday’s scrimmage with the Falcons. Ledford and a number of other receivers had big nights catching passes from Tanner Atkins. – DALE GENTRY | THE STANDARD BANNER

If Thursday’s first scrimmage against Fulton is any indication, Jefferson County High should have a potent passing attack this fall.

Senior quarterback Tanner Atkins looked sharp in the Patriots’ first preseason scrimmage, connecting with Austin Lietch for two long scores, and finding several other receivers for big gains.
