Callaway Resumes Weight Training & Conditioning
GHSA ALLOWS CONDITIONING TO RESUME ON JUNE 8TH AND THE CALLAWAY CAVALIERS BACK TO WORK
June 8th was the first day that high schools in the state of Georgia were allowed to resume weight training and conditioning.
The Callaway Cavaliers resumed preseason workouts on Monday, but things were a little different when players showed up for conditioning.
They had their temperature taken and were asked a list of questions to see if they were displaying any coronavirus related symptoms.
Only 20 people can attend weight training sessions at a time and that includes the coaches in the room.
So Monday’s workout was one session after the next so all of Callaway’s 110 players could train.
“There is a lot of things we’ve missed, but everybody’s on the same playing field across the state of Georgia,” says Callaway Head Coach, Pete Wiggins. “We’ve missed a lot of weight training, we’ve missed a lot of spring ball, we’ve missed some camps and we’ve missed some recruiting opportunities.It’s a different time right now, but we just have to handle that, make the best of it and keep going.”
Last season the Cavaliers went 12-2, making it all the way to the GHSA 2A State Semifnals.
They have to replace a lot of talent, like running back Tank Bigsby who is now at Auburn, but reloading is nothing new to the Callaway program.
“We’re looking forward to seeing them step up and take advantage of opportunities just like so many years before. We’ve lost a lot of good guys in the past,” said Wiggins. “You pick up your lunch pail, come to work and get ready to go”
The Callaway Cavaliers opens up their season on August 21st when they take on Opelika.
