The Shelby County High School football team lost nearly every skill-position player from last year's squad, so head coach Todd Shipley wasn't sure what to expect from his inexperienced squad.
The team showed some explosiveness at the first passing tournament of the summer at the University of Louisville Saturday, going 2-1 but failing to advance out of pool play.
The U of L tournament's rules require that you must be undefeated in pool play to advance to tournament play. With three teams tied at 2-1 and one team at 0-3, no team from the Rockets' pool advanced.
