Big Rapids High School hosts Reed City High School on Friday at Top Taggart

BIG RAPIDS — With about two weeks until the start of the school year, the Big Rapids High School football teams are busy learning plays and practicing strategies.

Players were on the practice field on Monday preparing for their season opener against Reed City High School. The Cardinals open their season at 7 p.m. on Friday at Top Taggart Field.

The Cardinals were 2-7 in 2011. Coming into this year, players and coaches realized there needed to be more of a commitment to becoming better. The team implemented an offseason program that included weight lifting sessions, summer camps and 7-on-7 tournaments — all of which were designed to not only make better football players, but teammates.
