It’s day two of prep football practice in the state of Illinois…..another day of workouts with helmets only.

IHSA rules allowed teams to start practice Wednesday with helmets only – Today (Thursday) is another day of helmets only on the football field – Friday begins a three-day period of helmets and shoulder pads only…..that means next Tuesday will be the first day of practice with full pads.

It’s another 7 am start for the Alton Redbirds and Roxana Shells today.  C.M. will be one of the teams with an afternoon workout – The Eagles will practice after school today (their first day back at school).

Roxana head football coach Pat talks about the start of practice for the upcoming 2013 season:
