Football practice is a hit

-A +A
High school football practice officially began Monday, and teams put on the pads and began hitting Wednesday, as Woodcreek defensive lineman Connor Richard (53) sticks a shoulder pad into grimacing teammate Blake Jones (66). Practices over the next two weeks will lead to scrimmages until Aug. 27, when Woodcreek opens at home against Lincoln and Granite Bay plays host to Reed of Sparks, Nev. Valley Christian opens at home against Woodland Christian on Aug. 28, and Oakmont and Roseville begin their seasons Sept. 3, Oakmont at home against Foothill and Roseville at Rio Linda.
