Billingsley and Montevallo will visit Verbena at 6 Friday night for a spring football jamboree.

The hosts will play Montevallo for one regulation half of play, then Billingsley will play Montevallo. Verbena and Billingsley will conclude the event.

Each team will begin possessions from its own 30-yard line and control the football for six minutes consecutively.

“The reason we’re doing it that way is to get a lot of plays in,” Verbena coach Mike Harris said.

The only special teams play that will be included will be extra points, and those will be uncontested by the defense.

Admission will be $5.
