The Apalachee High School football team took its preseason preparation to the next level last week as full contact workouts were allowed for the first time Aug. 1.
The Wildcats, who will host a preseason scrimmage Aug. 17 against Elbert County High School, have been working for several months during offseason training. Coach Shane Davis said he liked how practice progressed last week.
“There’s always a little bit of excitement when you go full pads,” the coach said. “Although battling the heat is an issue.”
Even before full contact work began, Davis and the AHS coaches had a pretty good idea of which players will be able to contribute in certain areas.
