DeKALB — DeKalb football freshman Marquan Howard stood up smiling, drenched, wiping away the water from his face that had just been dumped on him from a bucket.

His team had just completed the fastest time in a water-carrying and dumping contest, which pitted a group of DeKalb football players carrying cups of water and dumping them in another bucket until full.

Senior Donovan Lacey and George Colbert did the honors.
