The MDI Trojan Football Team is set to take the field for the 1st time on Monday, August 13th for the start of the preseason. New Head Coach Mark Arnold spoke to WDEA's Chris Popper to talk about the summer practices, and what the Trojans will be working on during the 1st week of practice.

The Trojans have a scrimmage at Waterville on Monday, August 20th and then will host the Ellsworth Eagles in an exhibition game on Friday August 24th at 7PM that will be broadcast on WDEA Internet Radio. Games may also be heard on the WDEA APP or on any Alexa enabled device.

We will be down at the 1st practice of the season, 6AM on Monday, August 13th and will have video from that. Then the plan is to have a coach's show next Thursday, August 16th to talk about the 1st week of practice and before the team heads to Schoodic for camp. We will then have coach's shows every Monday and Thursday during the season.

The MDI Football Coach's Show is sponsored by LS Robinson in Southwest Harbor.
