With just eight days before the Red Raiders hit the gridiron for their first scrimmage game of the 2010 season, the team wasted no time getting back on the field in helmets and shoulder pads this week.
Madison County started mandatory practice Monday. With helmets and shoulder pads only on Monday and Tuesday, coach Randell Owens was considering finishing out the week in full pads.
The Red Raiders have spent the summer training, aiming to start the season strong. While the coaching staff continues to work on finding the best placement for each player, Owens thinks the determining factor will be the film from the team’s first scrimmage game.
