The Sulphur Springs Edge conditioning program is in its’ fourth week. Friday (June 26) , after three weeks of The Edge, Wildcats Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Greg Owens said yes indeed, he is seeing progress from the players who are regularly showing up for The Edge. He talked about players picking up some technical stuff in the weight room. Coach Owens said they are getting so much better. He said the key is the daily repetitions they are getting. The UIL is also now allowing coaches to teach one hour of football skills each session. Coach Owens said the teaching is what has his coaching staff excited. He said it is helping to make up for the loss of spring football in May due to coronavirus concerns. Coach Owens said players attending The Edge will have a great advantage over those not showing up. He said the non-attendees will be behind when football practice begins in early August. Coach Owens said they will be required to play catch up and he noted that will frustrate coaches. When The Edge gets into July, Coach Owens said there would be an effort to get some more players into The Edge. He is hoping that by mid-July, the Wildcats will be able to do more group things that they are unable to do right now. Coach Owens said athletes that make it through The Edge tend to gain confidence. The Edge will run through the end of July.
