The pads were cracking at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium on Saturday morning as the Massillon football players got their first taste of contact, formally initiating the 2018 season. This came following ten summer camp workouts and a week-long instructional camp. The practice was extremely organized, with every activity timed to the minute. And coaches were quick to transform into classroom teaching mode when the needs arose. Although there is a lot of work to accomplish before the season opener against Akron St. Vincent, it was evident on this day that the Tigers were raring to get it started. Enjoy the photos.
