TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - Summer conditioning rolls on for high school football teams in both North Florida and South Georgia, and the Seminoles of Florida High going four days a week through the final couple of weeks before camp starts.
The Noles were going five days in June, but head coach Jarrod Hickman said he likes to cut it back so the guys "have a chance to get their legs back under them."
Lifting weights, agility, drills, all part of the routine at Florida High. Hickman added he's pleased with the Seminoles' efforts these last couple of weeks, noting that a good summer sets the tone for what lies ahead.
"Certainly you come out of spring feeling good or bad about the way you left that thing and then you have a chance to right the ship and certainly get pointed in the right direction," he said. "Certainly with the heat, trying to get acclimated to those things, it's important, and just for the cohesion. I think that's the most important thing for us, for our guys together, to work together, sweat together so that we can set the tone for the season."
Florida High opens the regular season at Disney World for a game with a team out of Pennsylvania.
