Something a little different as Springport and Concord football meet

By Mike Moore Staff Writer   Springport — On Friday night, the Springport and Concord football teams will meet on the gridiron, per usual.   And it will be unlike anything else to happen before   “I think everything about this game is awesome,” Concord coach Max Clark said late Thursday night. “It’s new to our community and players and team, to be in this situation and have the chances in front of us that we’ve do.”   “This is what small-town football is all about,” Springport coach Matt Schwartzkopf said of his team’s home game with the Yellowjackets. “This is two towns who have communities that center around the football teams, especially when they are doing well.
