Coaches keep their players safe for the first day of football practice

High schools across the region began their fall football practices Monday, July 31st. These next few weeks are all about getting used to the heat and humidity

Shady Spring High Head Coach, Vince Culicerto, was excited to be back on the field, but made sure his players stayed safe and hydrated during the hot temperatures.    

"There are certain times where temperatures get so hot that they're suppose to practice without their helmets and we keep our eye on all of that stuff, and water them up as much as possible. We let them know that if they're feeling bad to let us know and we'll pull them out to make sure they're ok," said Culicerto.

Some high schools are practicing twice a day, so there is an even greater emphasis on taking breaks and keeping the players hydrated.
