Last Wednesday marked the first day of full pads and hard hitting practice just south of Sacramento in Elk Grove, CA. The forest green and gold of Monterey Trail drilled, blocked, hit and ran with one goal in mind...winning games. The Mustang offense and defense is geared around hitting and hard work. The last man standing wins.
But I think I might need to talk to the coach about those 130p practice times. The high sun might be great for conditioning but the light contrast...not so good. Shout out to high school athletes. Six times a week these kids are running, lifting, hitting and practicing. I wonder if I could get through just a week.
