With temperatures well above 100-degrees, the Lake Highlands High football coaches have had to trick out their daily schedule for home-hosted football camps.

Wildcats head coach Scott Smith and the coaching staff are running football camps for 7th, 8th and 9th graders at LHHS, and they are trying to find a solid balance between working the kids hard and teaching them the game, and putting them at risk.

“You just have to be smart,” Smith said. “You have to realize that it is hot and that above all the health of the kids is important.”

Smith said the coaches have taken extra steps to make sure that the young Wildcats are safe.

They have plenty of water available as well as coolers and they also give the kids a nice break inside the locker room where there is air conditioning.

Smith said it looks like they will have to use the same type of caution as the varsity and JV teams take the field next week afor two-a-days, and prepare for the scrimmage against South Garland Friday, August 18.
