High school football season has officially arrived in Northeast Ohio.

The Holy Name football team hit the field Monday afternoon when temperatures peaked around 87 degrees.

“With the field being so hot, we take water breaks every time we switch positions or drills. We are trying to keep our guys as hydrated as possible,” said coach Dan Wondolowski.

In fact, all high school fall sports begin this week, many teams doing two-a-days.

“We do things different, we do our doubles in the afternoons, evening. We try and stay out of the midday heat,” added Wondolowski.
