Sparks football coach Rob Kittrell has been pleased with the turnout for the summer workouts.
The team has been meeting four days a week for about three and a half hours per day.
“It’s going real good. The kids are working hard,” Kittrell said. “The turnout has been good. We’ve had some hit and misses with summer baseball and basketball going on. Just in the last week with all that stuff winding down, we’ve had a full complement, which has been nice.”
The summer workouts started with weights and conditioning, but in order to keep it fun, once a week the team would participate in activities like dodgeball or other games.
Summertime is used to work on fundamentals and the Railroaders have been going through their base run and pass plays.
While Sparks didn’t attend any camps like other programs, players have had a chance to play some 7-on-7 against other schools on Wednesday nights. The Railroaders have faced off with Wooster and Hug and next week Sparks will have a jamboree with Wooster, Hug and Incline.
