Hot temperatures are nothing new for high school football coaches to have to deal with. Every year practices begin at the hottest point of the summer. But this year’s heat, and more specifically this week’s heat that has pushed the mercury over 100 degrees, has even made the toughest of coaches make sure their players are properly hydrated.
Lafayette head coach Anthony Hart and his staff have always tried to do the best job they can to keep players cool and hydrated. Hart even changed the practice time Tuesday so that action would start at 5:30 p.m. rather than at 3:30 p.m. so his team could miss the hottest point of the day on the hottest day of the year.
