It's part of more than 20 miles of prime costal property that have been under the control of Eglin Air Force Base since before World War II. Just a small stretch of Eglin's beaches are open to the public.

    Smaller roster has big expectations at Fremd
    For Fremd and coach Lou Sponsel, the hope is that there will be addition through subtraction this season. "There will be a much smaller roster number," said Sponsel, who had 98 players on his roster last year and has 59 this season. "The kids that made it through this year want to be here. We really upped the ante in the off-season and the players here have really bought in." Perhaps no one more than Darius Burchette, who has been on the varsity team since his freshman year. A running back, Burchette, who has blazing speed, had seen just limited action in his first three years. But Sponsel figures that will all change that season.
