Grady Varsity Football for 2004 Heats Up
Summer football fitness and weight training (voluntary) started June 1, but already huge numbers of our guys have been showing up Mondays through Thursdays, 5:00pm – 8:00pm. This past year’s fantastic season has our players fired up and ready to keep the big mo(mentum) going.
Coach Millen and his dedicated staff start each session with the guys paired up on the floor of the gym for intense stretching exercises. It’s amazing to see this segment, as the two man units not only are perfectly spaced apart, but also lined up in rows in complete formation. As the guys stretch each other methodically and deliberately, there is an unbelievable silence in the gym, revealing total concentration. Brothers and sisters, these guys mean business!
Sunday, July 11th, Grady’s players and coaches board a bus for a 4 day football camp at the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga, then return Wednesday, July 14t.th. The team will sleep in the dorms and dine on campus, in between what will surely be hot, intense, productive training sessions.
Monday, July 11th will be the first official day of mandatory practice allowed by Atlanta public schools. This is when things get real serious.
Friday evenings August 6th and 13th, Grady will compete against other schools in “controlled scrimmage” games. Mark your calendar, bring everybody with you, and come out to support the guys. Remember, fans need to warm up their vocal chords, work on the wave, etc.(Have you ever heard how much racket a plastic milk jug can make when a bunch of pennies are poured in?) Times are not yet announced.
Then finally, Friday, August 20th, the Knights play their FIRST REGULAR SEASON game, at Grady stadium. Time is not yet announced.
That’s it for now, but stay tuned for the final details.
