Clyde football is back on the field for strength and conditioning

Coach Campbell reflects on day one and two back on the field

CLYDE, Texas — With the UIL's approval of summer strength and conditioning workouts, the Clyde Bulldogs are back to work.

The team began training on Monday. Head coach Scott Campbell says the team is focusing on taking it day-by-day getting up to speed.

"This week we are trying to get their legs back underneath them. With a little bit of running, little bit of weight training and agility. More than anything being back together again. We will ramp it up as we go throughout the summer."

With a disappointing loss to Brock in the playoffs last season, coach says he is looking forward to building off of that run. With another stacked roster of seniors, coach is looking for more players to step up on the defensive end.

"We're using everyday as an evaluation tool. We tell the kids everyday is an opportunity to put something else on your resume. First thing is being here this summer and putting in the work and being there on time speaks volume to your teammates and to us as coaches."

Although teams across the state are thankful to be back on the field again, following the guidelines set will be important to staying on the field.

"It's crucial... we're doing everything we've been asking to do as far as precautions. The most important thing is that all sports come August will be on schedule."

FOX West Texas will continue to follow teams across West Texas during the summer workouts.
