Football camp this week, daily doubles the next
As the prep sports season inches closer, the Madras High School football team hit the practice field for a week of team camp, prior to the official start of fall practices, Aug. 19.
Camps before the official practice dates are commonplace now in the high school football landscape, as it allows teams to get an extra week of work in before they can strap on pads and smack each other around.
The varsity team will hold a scrimmage at 5 p.m., Aug. 23.
Madras will open the season on the road at 7 p.m. Aug. 30 in Stayton, and will be on the road the entire nonconference schedule with games in Sisters, Redmond and Prineville.
