Sunshine was on the shoulders, pads, helmets and all over football practice Monday in Sulphur Springs.
The Wildcats were toiling under the 95-degree temperatures with a heat index of close to 100.
Head coach Greg Owens said the team started practice with video study indoors.
The varsity and junior took the practice field at 5:05 p.m.
Owens said, “It’s hot today, we will have to see how long we go.”
Coaches were not pleased with the team’s condition in the recent scrimmage at Liberty-Eylau.
“The workout went two and half hours outside. I was not one of our better days defensively and that made the practice seem to be a big longer that it was,” said Triston Abron, Wildcat defensive coordinator. “We did some extra conditioning within the practice as well as afterwards.”
“We are working to get in better game shape,” Abron said. “We tell the guys that we can’t control the weather, do don’t use the weather as an excuse to not work or have a mental block up. The only think that we have control over is our attitude.”
Sulphur Springs offensive coordinator Matt Young said, “Monday was a great start to the week. We addressed corrections in the film room and hit the field running. It was hot but the players handled it like champions, they went to work. We are starting to increase our conditioning. Overall it was a very good Monday offensively.”
The Wildcats have a busy week with photo day coming up Thursday for all high school teams.
All teams will be involved in home scrimmage action Friday against Royse City starting at 5 p.m.
