Yes, but the Marco Island Academy football team has already traveled 1,200 miles just to play in the Brook Hill Texas Football Classic in Bullard, Texas.
Kicking off at 8 p.m., the Rays will go up against the Edgewood, Texas Bulldogs. The schools are similar in numbers, but not in experience. It may seem strange, but the fourth-year Rays have 17 starters back with many key players among them. Edgewood will be playing with many sophomores in the lineup.
The Rays arrived Thursday, taking a flight from Fort Lauderdale. They return Saturday night.
The Coastal Breeze is working on having photos on the team and fans who flew or drove to the game.
