High School football practice round-up

Georgia High School Association football practice began this week with padless play. Here's a capsule about what is happing with teams across the state. </p>

Troup's Tommy Walburn spent Monday working with the defensive line on proper technique. Though no fan of no-pad practices, he still took his team to task during this week.

Callaway's new head coach Claude Giddens said his Monday practice progressed well, with the team's conditioning looking better than during the spring. He worked the team as a normal game week.

Trion High's Mark Loudermilk is adapting to the school's year-round curriculum. He planned two-a-day practices until Thursday when classes started. On Thursday, the team starts afternoon practice.

Rockmart's Dan Duff spent eight hours testing his players before taking the field Tuesday and Wednesday for conditioning. Duff says that by spending time testing the players, he can evaluate player talents and abilities. Next week, the fifty Jackets who showed for workouts will travel to Cumberland College in Williamsburg, Ky., for a preseason camp before returning Aug. 1.

The Tift County Blue Devils are spending football practice week working in the weight room for a hour per day before going on the field for padless practice, according to Tommy Seward, head coach.
