The Edge conditioning program, which ran for a total of six weeks, ended for this summer Thursday morning. Wildcats Football Coach Greg Owens was busy pouring over attendance figures for The Edge Thursday morning. He said The Edge was good and the kids did great.
Coach Owens admitted it was a weird and longer than usual summer that made it necessary to put a two-week hiatus into The Edge’s schedule between week four and week five. He said he didn’t like the break in The Edge. Coach Owens said the UIL is considering changing their summer rules to provide some flexibility. He said his preference would be to spread out The Edge by making each week only Tuesday through Thursday. Coach Owens said that would give athletes longer weekends during The Edge.
He said the real proof of the pudding for The Edge would be if athletes show up in good shape for the first day of football practice on August 14. Coach Owens said it would be up to players to try to stay in shape on their own with almost two weeks now before the beginning of football practice. He said some athletes became faster and stronger due to their hard work at The Edge this summer.
