EDGAR — Darrel Springer knows that being a good farmer isn't much different than doing what it takes to be a good football team.
It requires dedication, perseverance, conditioning and — most of all — "it's competitive," the Clay County native said.
So when a linebacker of a storm charged through Springer's farmland near Edgar last week, tearing up a defensive lines of trees and irrigation equipment in its path, the high school football player in him was reawakened.
"The weather won't win," he said. "We're fighting back."
