High school football practice is officially underway across the state for teams who open their season during week one. Coaches are adapting to several new rules regarding pre-season practice, including the elimination of two-a-days.
“That’ probably been the challenge here for the coaching staff, how we are going to come up with a very efficient three-hour practice,” according to West Delaware coach Doug Winkowitsch. “In the past we’ve done defense in the morning and offense in the afternoon, and now you have basically a three-hour block of activity.”
Winkowitsch says they will have to be more efficient in their plan as they blend the offense and the defense together into one practice.
The high school season will get an early start on August 23rd with more than two dozen games as part of week zero.
