Over 60 report for Stanton two-a-days

STANTON – Though the numbers are slightly lower than expected, Buffalo Stadium welcomed 65 football players to the field for the first week of two-a-day workouts. That number could climb with a second week of workouts and the start of school on Aug. 14.

The first week of two-adays have not been easy as the practices run from 4 p.m. through 7 p.m., the hottest part of the day.

But through the blood, sweat and tears, Stanton head coach Cody Hogan was pleased to see his players in better shape than they were last season.

Grady’s road to the playoffs start with two-a-days

GRADY – The Grady Wildcats had a small taste of district and playoff success that season that will surly help motivate the nearly two dozen teenagers that reported for two-a-day practices on Monday.

The annoying alarm clock buzzer marked the start of the 2019 football season for 20 Grady Wildcat players as they crawled out of bed bright and early Monday morning.

Grady Coach Brent Lucas was already on the practice field when the sun came up to welcome his team to another long and prosperous season.

Like last season, Lucas hopes to bring back that tough mentality and pound the ground with a fierce running attack that hopefully translates into ball possession and clock control.
