Fighting through the heat







Oneonta players pause for a water break during practice as searing heat and smothering humidity make it tough. Monday was the first day of practice for all teams in the state under the Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA). Coaches will keep their teams in shorts and helmets for the first few days of practice but full pads and live tackling will be on the schedule later this week. Fall jamboree games will be played in two weeks with the first week of regular season play scheduled for Aug. 25 or 26. – Rob Rice
