The Doobie Brothers sang about “Takin’ it to the streets” decades ago.
Sulphur Springs put a new twist on that tune as the Wildcats took workouts indoors and put in needed football work in the Multi-Purpose Facility on Wednesday.
It was the final day to work on correcting mistakes made in the first five games.
The opening five contests of the year have revealed the best of the Wildcats at times. Other games have exposes issues that need to be corrected before the start of district.
While the nice roof on the indoor facility did shield the Wildcats from the sun, the squad was far from taking it easy. The humidity was present and only an occasional breeze through side doors allowed relief from the conditions.
Wednesday, as it the rule on the schedule, is shorter than usual workout.
Thursday, the final varsity football workout day of this open week, will consist of practice from after school until about 5:30 p.m.
At today’s practice, Mount Pleasant will be placed front and center and in the sights of the Wildcats.
If Sulphur Springs wants to repeat as undefeated district champions, a big step begins at home Oct. 11 when the Tigers roll into Gerald Prim Stadium.
The two squads put on a game to remember last year as they combined for 136 points and almost blew the lights out of the scoreboard.
Sulphur Springs took the win 71-65 in the win which would be the first step toward a district title.
In that record-breaking contest Wildcat running back Willy Ivery ran for 309 yards to set a new single game record.
The Wildcats had 717 total yards while Mount Pleasant rolled up 669 yards.
Sulphur Springs is working this year on a way to limit the Mount Pleasant attack.
The Tigers and Wildcats both enter the district opener with 3-2 non-district records.
