Summer Football at The Colt Corral
Clear Fork Training Camp
June 11, 2020
Clear Fork returned to the football field with summer workouts under the new health guidelines this week where head coach Dave Carroll and the Colts got in some conditioning, strength training and foot drills.
Coming off a 6-4 season that saw Clear Fork narrowly miss a chance at their third straight MOAC championship, the Colts will return a lot of speed at the skill positions.
Carroll says his squad features "a bevy of skill kids that can run", plus three returning starters along the offensive line.
Players like senior Ashton Lyon admit that the COVID-19 restrictions make practice more challenging, but is happy to be back on the practice field with his teammates. Fellow senior Braden Montgomery says the guys are trying to keep a "high intensity" because they have set the bar high with lofty goals for the new season.
In the short-term, Clear Fork and all other high school football teams in Ohio are required to work out in small groups with limited contact to others and equipment. There is still no guarantee that football season will start on time as the Colts and others prepare during an interesting time in the sports world.
