On a hot Tuesday afternoon, Will Rice was putting his Camden Military Academy football team through the paces in preparation for tonight’s season-opener at North Myrtle Beach Christian School (NMBCS) while looking down a clipboard and a piece of paper with the names of his players written in pen.While Rice and his staff were busy teaching the Spartans formations and plays, the head coach was trying to see just who was on the practice field and what jersey number they were wearing.“Right now,” Rice said with a smile, “after less than two weeks before our first game, we’re still learning names. It is what it is. We’ll line it up Friday, kick it off and do our best.”A season ago, the Spartans snapped a 20-game winless skid with a 38-0 victory over New Covenant Christian School.
