The Wildcats’ football team has their first practice of the season Monday evening (August 14) from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the Multipurpose Building. Wildcats Football Coach Greg Owens says players will be anxious and excited and he adds everyone is ready to get to work.
He says having spring ball makes him less anxious now. Coach Owens says after spring football, coaches know what they have coming back. On the other hand, it’s been a couple of months since the Wildcats completed spring football drills. For that reason, Coach Owens says coaches will start players off back at ground zero. He is counting on good levels of retention of things learned this spring to quickly move things along.
Coach Owens says his coaches have been ready for practice to start for weeks now adding they would like to be playing a game tomorrow. He is counting on players showing up in good shape. Otherwise he says they will find themselves behind players that are in shape.
