The White County High School football team was one of the first teams in the state of Tennessee to hit the field for their first official practice of the season.
The team began going through non-contact drills at approximately 11 p.m. Sunday, but when the clock passed midnight and the calendar changed from Sunday to Monday, the pads went on and the hitting began. Even though it was a late night practice, there was a good turn out of fans at Warrior Stadium to watch the first practice.
The TSSAA set the official start date of football practice in full pads as July 27th. The Warriors have been working hard and were eager to get down to full fledged football. Thus, they got in their first official practice just after midnight. It showed their eagerness and also beat the heat and humidity that is predicted for later on Monday.
The Warriors will be back on the field Tuesday afternoon for their second practice. They will wrap up the week with a four-way scrimmage Friday on Dee Harris Field.
