Football Practice in 98 Degree Heat

READ MORE: Football Practice in 98 Degree Heat
Too much heat can lead to a dangerous situation for a football player. One of the keys is awareness and the players & coaches understood how hot it was Wednesday at North Brunswick. The heat index was 105. The temperature reached 98. The Scorpions go through an average of 65 gallons of water during each practice, on a hot day. Head Coach Gary Bishop chooses to practice in the late afternoon - early evening time period instead of the morning, like some teams do. " The key is to keep fluids in them. We think practicing in the evening is not a problem. We've never had a problem in 15 years and we want to keep it that way."
