Mill Creek’s Caleb Downs (2) returns an interception for a touchdown against Dacula at Dacula High School.

Spring practice has succumbed to summer workouts and 7-on-7 tournaments, signaling the high school football season’s rapid approach.

Georgia High School Association teams can begin practices in full pads Aug. 2, slightly more than two weeks in advance of the Aug. 19 and 20 season openers.
