Tyler (KETK) — The John Tyler Lions started their first day of practice before the sun came up.
JT started at 5:00 am Monday.
"We really don't play any games in the heat of the day," John Tyler coach Ricklan Holmes told KETK Sports Director Danny Elzner. "It shows initiative for you to get up at 4:00 in the morning to be at practice at 5:00 am."
"That lets you know you really want to do what it takes to win," Holmes added.
Tyler Lee also started football practice Monday.
The Red Raiders are starting their third season with coach Darrell Piske.
Elzner asked the coach if Lee will get to the playoffs this year.
"Yes sir," Piske said. "Our coaches handbook says it's time."
"That's what we told the kids today," Piske added. "It's time."
