Published 2:58 pm Friday, August 6, 2010

For the second time in as many years, the Polk County High School football team will hold a midnight practice beginning just after midnight Monday morning at the high school.

We did this last year and had a real good response from the kids, said PCHS head coach Bruce Ollis.

The Wolverines began practice this past Monday in shorts and t-shirts. This coming Monday will be the first day N.C. teams are allowed to practice in full pads.
