Attendance Lags For The Edge Thursday After Break

After four days off for The Edge conditioning program for football, it resumed Thursday morning July 9) in the Multipurpose Building. Wildcats Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Greg Owens said he was happy with the ones who were there but he noted that attendance numbers were down. He said attendance was off by about 50% Thursday. Coach Owens added some of the athletes were sluggish Thursday morning. He said there are now 11 workouts left including one on Friday morning. Then the next two weeks will be complete 5 day weeks. Initially the UIL had mandated two days off, Monday and Tuesday July 20-21, due to a high school coaches school. Coach Owens said the UIL decided to rescind those mandated days off. Coaches will now be able to work with athletes in the morning those days and then have a virtual coaching school those afternoons. Beginning next week, Coach Owens said the UIL will allow conditioning programs to do more things including offensive versus defensive drills and 7 on 7 work. He hopes the change will boost attendance over the final two weeks of The Edge. He sand he would work hard to encourage more athletes to attend during those final two weeks. After The Edge, there will be a week off before the beginning of fall football practice on Monday, August 3. Coach Owens said he is hopeful that they would be able to get started on time.
