The Wylie Bulldogs go to work on Monday, but their first work out was moved into the “Dog House” because of morning rains in the Abilene area.
The freshmen worked through some plays, but the upper classmen hit the weights on the first day of practice.
Not getting on the field was disappointing, but head coach Hugh Sandifer said it was good to be with his team.
Sandifer said, “It’s very exciting, it’s a day we’ve all been looking forward to. A little bit different that we started a week later than we normally do. Other schools around the Big Country are out there and we’re here kind of going ‘hey we’re ready too’ so a little bit of an adjustment but kids showed up in a great mindset this morning. Luckily, we’ve got a place to come and get some work done and hopefully we’ll get out there tomorrow and gets some things with a real workout tomorrow. Sometimes it doesn’t hurt to slow down a little bit and take care of some business.”
The Bulldogs are picked third in their new district behind new district rivals Lubbock Cooper and Wichita Falls Rider.
