Cool weather greets Elks as practice opens
Heavy cloud cover made things nice and cool for Burleson’s football players as they took to the field Monday at 7:30 a.m. for their first practice of the 2018 season.
The Elks went through drills in helmets and shorts. Midway through the practice they were treated to cold drinks and flavored ice pops during a break under the stands at Burleson ISD Stadium.
Burleson’s first test will come at 7 p.m. Aug. 24 when the Elks scrimmage Birdville at Burleson ISD Stadium.
The Elks open the season at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 1 against Kansas City (Kan.) F.L. Schlagle. Burleson then plays at 7 p.m. Sept. 6 versus Denton Braswell at C.H. Collins Stadium.
