So how are you guys surviving the heat? When it’s this hot, everyone has to be careful. I’m especially watchful of this because I remember well the two football players who died in 1998  — Matthew Whittredge from Circle and Robert Alexander Barrett from South — after the first day of football practice.

What’s your advice for athletes with this heat? For me I’m encouraging my nephews to go for runs of at least a mile or two every morning just to get used to the heat as they prepare for football. Your thoughts?
