Greer High’s 2014 football season, known among Jacket Backers as “Life After Quez,” gets underway Friday with the start of fall practice.
The Riverside football team got quite the surprise last week during the team’s final summer workout session.
Players reported to the practice field to find a team of U.S. Marines waiting. What ensued was 90 minutes of intense training.
