Sulphur Springs football action was fast, furious and pretty toasty Tuesday on the high school practice field.
As expected, the 90-plus degree August heat is a constant companion to football workouts. Players take frequent breaks for rest and water.
Sulphur Springs practices have been lasting two to two and a half hours.
Tuesday the Wildcats hit the field at 5:05 p.m. and continued on drills they need to get ready for the upcoming Friday home scrimmage against Royse City.
Wildcat head football coach Greg Owens said he is more concerned about his team, than the opponent.
“We just want our group to get better. It really doesn’t matter who we go against, we just want to improve,” Owens said. “We want to get better at all of it. We want to get better at every position. We need to play with a sense of urgency. We need to execute better. We have to eliminate holding penalties like we had against Liberty-Eylau.”
The Wildcats went through specialty defensive drills.
The squads took on each other in 7-on-7 action. Blown coverage and allowing a touchdown pass did not sit well with defensive coaches.
Players did extra conditioning which included up-downs, extra pass routes and some gassers.
Practice today is 4-6 p.m., workouts Thursday begin at 3 p.m. due to photo day for team members. The Friday scrimmage vs. Royse City begins at 5 p.m.
