Football-Per Lion Athletics, the team has been practicing this week at 6 AM to get ready for an opening kickoff Saturday at 10 PM. Honestly, this is a fantastic idea, but I cannot imagine how hard it must be to be playing that early. I remember in High School we had some 8 AM games during Basketball season playing in tournaments, but Football is an entirely different ball game. Practicing in the dark and just getting up that early is necessary for anyones body to adjust to that time. That is one thing that has been worrying me is getting up that early to play, but its good to see the staff adapting to it.
