As the school year kicks off, so does the MHS football team. With summer practice, and the heat a constant event, hydration is key. When asked about keeping hydrated. One of the Offensive Linemen told us that, "drinking water constantly throughout the day and night is very important or you will overheat in no time out there." But, to those that love playing football, the heat does not bother them. All that matters to many of the football playersd is actually having a field to play on this year.
During the summer break there was an event called a seven-on-seven. Only the most skilled players from a team may perform in this event. To perform in nationals you must recieve an invitation to participate. After winning regionals, the team was given that opportunity. MHS came in 3rd place out of the whole nation. "We did surprisingly well competing against all of the nation's best players. Said Coach Sutherland.
With the graduation of many previous players, the question of whether or not this had affected the teams' performance in any way had to be addressed. The response recieved told of how the "O Line" has only two returning starters; but, there are a lot of new players rising to the surface that seem to be looking good. This leads others to believe that the MHS football team will have a fairly good season this year. The training has been rigorous and the coaches can get pretty tough on the players at times, but all in all, the tiresome work is well worth being able to do something that you love.
Oh, and for the record, Mr. Sutherland was not struck by lightning. By: Jared
