|Seven on seven plan for Gators|
The Delhi Charter School Gators did not hold any spring football practices this spring and they will be working extra hard this summer to make up for lost time.
DCS ended their school year on May 6 and the Louisiana High School Athletic Association did not allow teams to begin practice until May 9 this year.
