Weightlifting, Spring Practice, and Fundraisers are the three main items the High School Football team are focusing on currently.
Weightlifting: Approximately 20 – 25 players are lifting weights and working hard with plyometric training four days a week after school. Coaches McCann and Tolle are instructing and pushing the players to get stronger and quicker. The Harrison County team competed at Western Hills High School recently with four other teams; Collins, Tates Creek, Franklin County, and Western Hills in a strongman competition. The Thorobreds tied for first, but settled for second due to tiebreaker rules. More coverage is in the Democrat. Congratulations to the Thorobred Football/Weightlifting Team!
Spring Practice: Spring football practice starts on Monday, April 15 from 5PM to 7PM. KHSAA rules state that high schools have a window of three connsecutive weeks to have 10 – 2 hour practices during a predesignated date selection. Practices will revolve around the weather and other spring sports contests. We hope to coordinate with other spring sports contests and practices so that as many players can participate in spring football practice. Harrison County High School has many student athletes that play multiple sports which is strongly encouraged from the football perspective. Spring practice is open to everyone at the practice field which is beside Shirley Park -Fillies Softball Field.
Fundraisers: Our team hopes to purchase much needed new helmets, shoulder pads, and uniforms for the upcoming season. We also need operating funds for away game travel, home game referees, meals for the players, equipment, and other items. We must get this done through fundraisers and donations. We will be having a Booster Meeting on Tuesday, May 14 at 6 PM in the high school cafeteria to discuss fundraisers. All parents, guardians, fans, and any interested persons who want to help the team are encouraged to attend.
