Wildcats Put on Half Pads for First Time

The Salem Wildcats continued fall practices Friday, exactly two weeks

ahead of the Shrine Game against Centralia.

Friday's practice was the first in half pads as Salem adjusts to the new IHSA acclimation

rules. Senior Seth Crain was ready to for more contact.

"It felt really good to just go out there and be able to hit people, fly

around, and just play some football. The weather is nice. I think we're doing

really well on defense and bringing it together on offense."

Senior lineman Chase Boozer explains where they have focused much of their

attention in the off-season.

"We've worked a lot on our tackling because it hasn't been that great in

the past, and really just our intensity on both defense and offense."

Salem started the day with a brief walk through before the first day of school.

The Wildcats have another practice scheduled for Saturday. Salem is off on Sunday.
