Coaches work to keep young players cool during practice

Posted: Updated:

 

Not only are high school football players feeling the heat at practice, but so are the younger players.

Youth teams practicing at the A.D. Lewis Community center are right out there in the heat just lie the older players and coaches say they try to practice safely.

Coaches say they take frequent breaks and try to keep their players hydrated.

One parent said her son complained of a headache from the heat, but wanted to practice with his team.

Coaches say its a good idea to drink water, but drink it sparingly, or players can suffer cramps.
