(WILX) -- High School football practice begins next week, not this week as usual-- in my view it's a better move than past years.
This is a calendar issue and first high school games don't get played until Thursday, August 29th.
That means only one game will get played instead of two before the start of school this fall.
Teams that start 0-2 before class starts leaves kind of a downer attitude for school spirit to begin the year.
Coaches like the later practice start because their players get a bit more summer.
But it returns to normal next year, another calendar move and that's too bad in my view.
