Millbrook High School’s varsity football players know extreme heat doesn’t mean a day off from practice.
“When we are on the field between the white lines and it’s not a water break, we expect the same things out of them,” Millbrook High Coach Clarence Inscore said Monday.
“If we get into the extreme (heat) ranges…we go into what we call a code red, which means everybody has to take off helmets and equipment,” Poole said. “At that point, we are just in T-shirts and shorts and just trying to keep the kids hydrated and safe.”
Water breaks are down to a science…..
“We typically take a five-minute break and that means absolutely no activity – helmets off – every 15 minutes,” Poole said.
Players can grab cold water anytime they need it, and they must weigh in before and after each practice.
