Rockets host Blue White Scrimmage at 8 Friday night

Rocket conditioning is part of every pre-season workout

Due to excessive heat, Crittenden County football's pre-season camp schedule has been altered this week. Instead of the customary three-a-day practice sessions, the team has been working out from 8 to 11 a.m., and then from 8 to 10 p.m. The KHSAA and school policy does not allow outdoor games or practices when the heat index reaches a certain level.

Those two-a-day practices will continue this week and culminate in a Blue and White Intra-Squad Scrimmage Game at 8 p.m., Friday at Rocket Stadium. Admission is canned goods which will be donated to the Crittenden County Food Bank.

The Rockets only other preseason play will be a dual scrimmage at Muhlenberg South Middle School Field on Friday, Aug. 12. Crittenden will play Muhlenberg County at 7:15 p.m., and Logan County at 8:30 p.m. These will be controlled scrimmages with 10 plays on offense and 10 plans on defense.

The Rocket regular season opener is Friday, Aug. 26 against Hopkins Central in the National Guard Warrior Bowl at Rocket Stadium.
