Helmet fitting for HS gridders set for next week
Helmet fitting for Pecos Eagle high school football players will be held
next week at the Pecos High School Field House.
Coach Patrick Willis said helmet fitting for juniors and seniors will
be next Wednesday, from 8 a.m. to 12 noon and from 1 to 5 p.m., while freshman
and sophomores should go to the field house on Thursday during those same
times to get their helmet fitted for the upcoming season.
Two-a-days for Pecos varsity, junior varsity and freshman players will
get underway at 7:30 a.m. on August 4. Physicals were held on Thursday for
all Pecos high school and junior high athletes, and 175 boys and girls showed
up at Dr. Orville Cerna's office for the reduced price physicals, according
to trainer Joel Birch.
Dr. Cerna will still be giving physicals from now through the start of
workouts for fall sports, but at the regular price of $25. Physicals can
also be taken by students through other area physicians in order to be eligible
to participate in athletics.
